 Ozzy Osbourne biography premiered on A&E Monday, September 7.  Ozzy calls late guitarist Randy Rhoads "A gift from God." 

“Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne.”  Ozzy Osbourne, and Randy Rhoads | A&E.  In this clip Ozzy heaps praise on the late-great guitarist Randy Rhoads. 

“When I first met (Randy) I was fucking out of my face and he came in about this big and this thin in high-heeled shoes, and then he started to play and I just went (speechless)… and that was it.

His Ozzness continues: “I knew instinctively that he was just something extra-special. It was like a gift from God. … One thing he gave to me was hope. He gave me a reason for carrying on. He had patience with me … and he was very good to work with. He’d pull the best out of you. We had a lot of fun.”

Ozzy Osbourne documentary "Biography: "The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne" premiered Labor Day Monday September 7 on A&E.

"As a kid, I was afraid of everything. And so you just crawl into your hole, you know. You're an easy prey for the bullying. So when you do find a bit of booze or dope or whatever, you go (bleep) I found it. I could never get there again. Alcohol and dope and being a class clown sort of sums it all up you know."

"Nine Lives" traces Ozzy’s life from his childhood in poverty, time in prison, to fronting legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Black Sabbath, successful Grammy Award-winning solo career, to one of rock’s elder statesman, and loveable 21st century television dad.

Watch! Masked Jon Bon Jovi wander empty Covid-19  NYC streets, with a salute to workers in new video "Do What You Can"

Shooting a video on nearly empty streets of Manhattan amid a global crisis really told the story of ‘Do What You Can’ from the place where I lived it,” Jon Bon Jovi said in a statement from Rolling Stone magazine.

“And I know those empty streets look similar to so many parts of America battling this pandemic. But the story of everyday heroes showing amazing courage was inspiring to see and the video, much like the song, has a great deal of hope in it too.”
