Ozzy Osbourne – The Artist
John Michael “Ozzy” Osbourne (born 1948) is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence during the 1970s as the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, during which period he adopted the nickname “Prince of Darkness”.Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath in 1979 due to alcohol and drug problems, but went on to have a successful solo career, releasing 12 studio albums, the first seven of which received multi-platinum certifications in the US. Osbourne has since reunited with Black Sabbath on several occasions. He rejoined in 1997 and helped record the group’s final studio album, 13 (2013), before they embarked on a farewell tour that ended with a February 2017 performance in their hometown, Birmingham. His longevity and success have earned him the informal title “Godfather of Metal”. Osbourne’s total album sales from his years in Black Sabbath, combined with his solo work, is over 100 million. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Black Sabbath and into the UK Music Hall of Fame as a solo artist and as a member of the band. He has been honoured with stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Birmingham Walk of Stars. At the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards, he received the Global Icon Award. In 2015, Osbourne received the Ivor Novello Award for Lifetime Achievement from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors.
Bark At The Moon – The Song
Bark At The Moon is a song by heavy metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. It was the first single released from his 1983 album of the same name. The music video produced for the song was Osbourne’s first. It peaked at #21 on the UK Singles Chart and #12 on Billboard’s Album Rock Tracks. The song has received critical praise, frequently being voted one of Ozzy’s best songs. Lyrically, the song deals with a creature of some sort who once terrorised a town, was killed, and later mysteriously returned to once again wreak havoc upon the villagers. The music video, however, borrows heavily from Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, depicting Osbourne as a “mad scientist” who ingests a substance in his laboratory which causes him to transform into the werewolf depicted on the Bark at the Moon album cover.
The Howling Wolf – The Shape
This record is modelled into the shape of a howling wolf. In folklore, a werewolf is a human with the ability to shape-shift into a wolf (or, especially in modern film, a therianthropic hybrid wolflike creature), either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction (often a bite or scratch from another werewolf) with the transformations occurring on the night of a full moon.
