Osbourne, Oslived, Osgotsixkids

For the most part, it is the kids who drive the father crazy. However, this week's objet d'eBay, a collection of Russian nesting dolls featuring the various incarnations of oddrock legend and then harmless, bumbling reality tv star Ozzy Osbourne celebrates not just the man, but his new book as well and the clear evidence that there were issues long before there were kids.

I am Ozzy is an as told-to tale. (Osbourne is famously both dyslexic and not much of a reader or writer.). It's the story of a man who says of himself, "I'm just John Osbourne: a working-class kid from Aston, who quit his job in the factory and went looking for a good time" and also ended up the father of five — six if you count the boy he adopted when he married his first wife.
