Ozzy Osbourne
FameRank: 8

"John Michael" ""Ozzy"" "Osbourne" is an English heavy metal vocalist, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the pioneering band Black Sabbath, whose dark and heavy sound has often been cited as key to the development of the Heavy metal music/heavy metal genre. Osbourne left Black Sabbath in 1979 and has since had a successful solo career, releasing 11 studio albums, the first seven of which were all awarded multi-platinum certifications in the U.S., although he has reunited with Black Sabbath on several occasions, most recently in 2011, to record the album 13 (Black Sabbath album)/13, which was released in 2013. Osbourne's longevity and success have earned him the informal title of "Honorific nicknames in popular music/Godfather of Heavy Metal".
