John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne is an English heavy metal vocalist and songwriter. Osbourne rose to prominence as lead singer of the pioneering English band Black Sabbath, whose dark and hard sound helped spawn the heavy metal genre. Since then he has led a hugely successful solo career, releasing 11 studio albums, the first 7 of which were all awarded multi-platinum certifications in the US. In one episode of the reality show based on the life of his family, The Osbournes, Osbourne refers to himself as the "Prince of Darkness", although the term is not generally applied to him by longtime fans of his music. Osbourne is also known as the "Godfather of Heavy Metal". In the early 2000s, he became a star in his own reality show The Osbournes, alongside wife/manager Sharon and two of their three children, Kelly and Jack. A documentary about his life and career, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne, premiered in April 2011 at the Tribeca Film Festival and was released on DVD in November 2011. Osbourne's total album sales from his years in Black Sabbath combined with his solo work is over 100 million.
