The legendary singer Ozzy Osbourne helped to form Black Sabbath in the late 60s alongside Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward. The group became in the 70s one of the biggest and most influential bands in the world but things started to fall apart by the end of that decade and Ozzy was fired.
His career was saved by Sharon Arden, who was the daughter of Sabbath manager Don Arden, she decided to take care of his career and they eventually got married and started a family. In an interview with E! (Transcribed by Blabbermouth), she talked about their relationship.
“This thing is we’re two oddballs. We’re both oddballs. I might look quite, oh, the way I dress, quite normal, but normal is not a word I use often. So, we’re two oddballs, and we were two wild young people that found each other.”
“And I think we’re cut from the same mold. And it’s not been easy. No relationship is easy, and you have to work at it, and you get your ugly times, your bad times, and your horrific times.”
“But if you love each other enough, you’ll work through. And to realize that you have to accept people for what they are. They’ll never be what you want them to be. You have to accept them — their good and their bad parts. If you love them enough, you’ll accept it and realize that you can’t change it,” Sharon Osbourne said.
In 2022 they celebrated four decades together. The couple was married in 1982 in Maui, Hawaii and had three children.
Ozzy is one of the few artists who were able to have almost the same level of success on a solo career compared to how successful he was as a member of a band.
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
