OZZY OSBOURNE's 'I Am Ozzy' Memoir Now Available In Paperback

Ozzy Osbourne's memoir, "I Am Ozzy", has just been made available in paperback for the first time.

Osbourne won the "Literary Achievement" honor for "I Am Ozzy" at last year's Guys Choice Awards at Sony Pictures Studio in Culver City, California. Ozzy was presented with the award by Sir Ben Kingsley.

"I Am Ozzy" debuted at No. 2 on the New York Times' hardcover non-fiction best-seller list. The book was published on January 25, 2010 in the U.S., nearly two years after it was first expected to arrive. "I Am Ozzy" chronicles the legendary metal icon's life from his working-class beginnings in Birmingham, England to his initial fame with BLACK SABBATH to his massive solo career and forays into television.

Ozzy will publish a new book called "Ask Dr. Ozzy" this year. The book will be co-written with Chris Ayres, who collaborated with Osbourne on his memoir "I Am Ozzy", and is a spin-off of the singer's column in Sunday Times.

According to the publisher, the book will "tell incredible survival stories not found in his memoir, offer advice that no human should follow, and shed light on his seemingly superhuman ability to keep breathing." An October 2011 release is expected.

Osbourne's 2011 dates get underway January 12 in Minneapolis. The six-week 2011 trek will include a pair of intimate shows: January 26 at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix and February 1 at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. Ozzy's longtime friend and musical collaborator Slash will open all the concerts on the second leg.
