100% Pure Ozzy: OZZY OSBOURNE arrives to sign copies of TRUST ME, I'M DR. OZZY

Saturday, October 22, 2011 - 3:00pm






Based on his ongoing, hilarious Rolling Stone column, TRUST ME, I'M DR. OZZY: Advice from Rock's Ultimate Survivor finds the Prince of Darkness embracing his status as a medical marvel to tell incredible stories not found in his memoir (I Am Ozzy), offer advice that no human should follow, and shed light on his seemingly superhuman ability to stay alive.


Wondering if science could perhaps explain how he survived his 40-year avalanche of drugs and alcohol, Ozzy Osbourne decided to have his DNA mapped in 2010. The results were conclusive:  Ozzy is literally a genetic mutant. The “Full Ozzy Genome” contained variants that scientists had never before encountered. In fact, the findings made headlines around the world and even led to Ozzy hosting a prestigious TED conference. This was the genesis of the columns Ozzy has since been writing for Rolling Stone in the US and The Sunday Times in the UK. Through reader-submitted medical and lifestyle questions, Ozzy digs deep into his murky past, searching for pearls of “wisdom.”

includes some of the best material from the columns as well as longer memoir-style survival stories that Ozzy has remembered since writing I Am Ozzy, his answers to celebrities’ medical questions, charts and sidebars, and much more.  Part humor, part memoir, and part bad advice, the best way to describe this book is 100% pure Ozzy.
