Ozzy Osbourne has had an extraordinary life — in fact, he may have had more than just one extraordinary life, as the title of a new documentary on the heavy-metal godfather suggests. Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne — produced by A&E as part of the channel’s Biography series, and directed by former Osbournes producer R. Greg Johnston — is set to premiere at this spring’s South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. The film features interviews with Ozzy’s wife and manager Sharon Osbourne and famed producer Rick Rubin, as well as musicians and famous fans Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Jonathan Davis, Ice-T and Post Malone. Ozzy, Sharon and Jack Osbourne executive produced the picture. Watch the first trailer for the doc below.

“I don’t know what music would be like if it weren’t for the influence of Ozzy,” Rubin, who produced Black Sabbath’s final album, 13, says in the teaser. “Ozzy changed everything.” Sharon adds, “He left one of the biggest rock bands in the world and became bigger — a credible artist on his own, finding great new talent. And then [he] made it huge on TV. Nobody had done that.”

Ozzy has a huge 2020 ahead of him, including the February release of his first solo album in nearly a decade, the winkingly titled Ordinary Man, and the completion of the “No More Tours 2” dates postponed last year due to health issues. Those are schedule to kick off in May — see the itinerary for the North American leg below.
