Career of Ozzy Osbourne:
Osbourne was recruited by Geezer Butler to be the vocalist for the band Rare Breed in late 1967. Although Rare Breed broke up after playing only two shows, Osbourne and Butler reunited to form the bank Polka Tulk Blues, along with guitarist Tony Iommi and drummer Bill Ward. They changed their band name to Black Sabbath in August 1969, inspired by the film of the same title. They began playing a heavy blues style of music, including gloomier and darker lyrics. Black Sabbath signed to Philips Records in November 1969, and released their first single "Evil Woman" in January 1970, with their debut self-titled album releasing the following month.
Although their first record did not receive much attention, their coming albums were a commercial success. Master of Reality was certified gold less than two months after its release, and Volume 4 achieved gold status within a month.
In 1979, Ozzy was fired from his band for being unreliable behavior and substance abuse. Ozzy was signed to Jet Records by Don Arden and thus began his solo career. In 1980, Osbourne released Blizzard of Ozz, which was a resounding commercial success and got multi-platinum status. His follow-up, Diary of a Madman, performed equally well.
In 1992 Osbourne announced that the No More Tears Tour would be his last. However, the popularity of the subsequently released double-live album, Live & Loud (1993), caused Osbourne to rethink his retirement, and the album’s version of "I Don't Want to Change the World" earned Osbourne his first Grammy Award. He has released a total of 12 studio albums in his career and released his latest album Ordinary Man in February 2020. Seven of his albums have received multi-platinum certifications in the US.
Osbourne soon boosted his celebrity status even further with his own brand of reality television. Debuting in early 2002, The Osbournes centered on the domestic life of Osbourne and his clan and became an instant hit. In 2005, Osbourne reunited with Black Sabbath for a tour, and the following year the heavy metal legends were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2012 Osbourne reunited with his Sabbath bandmates to perform a series of concerts and record a new studio album, 13, which earned its release the following year. In 2015 the band announced plans for one final tour, fittingly dubbed The End.
