Notes
Every person in the world has probably, at one point or another, had the desire to be a rock star. The decadent lifestyle, the adoring fans, and the endless ego-stroking are just the tip of the iceberg for many popular music stars. But, as rock stars have come and gone (many of them succumbing to particularly early demises and tragic falls from grace,) the flip side of this incredible success has been made clear to the general public. On the documentary ROCK SURVIVORS, some of the biggest names in rock discuss their experiences with sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll. These include KISS, Ozzy Osbourne, Anthrax, Slaughter, Ugly Kid Joe, Megadeth, Poison, and several others. Along with interviews, behind-the-scenes footage is included.

Storyline
Ozzy Osbourne’s four decade track record as a culturally relevant artist is unprecedented, but his personal struggles have been shrouded in secrecy, until now. Featuring never before seen footage uncovered from the archives and interviews with Paul McCartney, Tommy Lee and others, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne is the first documentary to take viewers inside the complex mind of rock’s great icon. Emerging from a working class family in war torn England, Osbourne and his neighborhood friends formed Black Sabbath and invented heavy metal. Plagued by self doubt, Osbourne the solo superstar went on a binge that lasted 40 years. God Bless Ozzy Osbourne will relive the highs of his triumphs as well as his journey to sobriety, which Ozzy regards as his greatest accomplishment.
