Born in Birmingham, England, in 1948, Ozzy Osbourne rose to fame in the 1970s as the frontman of the seminal heavy metal band Black Sabbath, delivering such iconic songs as “War Pigs,” “Iron Man” and “Paranoid.” He embarked on a successful solo career in 1979, earning attention for his outrageous public acts and drawing the ire of conservative groups. Osbourne later garnered a new legion of fans by starring with his family in the unlikely hit reality show The Osbournes.
Osbourne has six children. The first three — Jessica, Louis and Elliot (Osbourne adopted Elliot) — were from his first marriage to Thelma Riley, whom he wedded in 1971. In 1982 he married Sharon and had three children with her: Kelly, Jack and Aimee.
