Ozzy Osbourne (John Michael Osbourne) is an English songwriter, singer, and actor. He was the front man of the heavy metal band ‘Black Sabbath’ and is often regarded as one of the most prominent exponents of that particular genre of music. Osbourne was obsessed with music right from his childhood. He was recruited as the singer of the band ‘Rare Breed,’ which later morphed into 'Black Sabbath,' in 1968. The band became one of the biggest heavy metal bands in the 1970s and Osbourne became one of the biggest stars in the world of music. The band fired him in 1979 but that did not affect his stock in any way, as he went on to establish a stellar solo career. He is regarded as the ‘Godfather of Heavy Metal’ and has also been inducted into the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’ as well as in the ‘UK Music Hall of Fame’.
