Yes, I’ve constructed as Ozzy book using the same format as my Maiden book of last year. It’s a full-color, hard cover extravaganza, making full plunder of all the Ozzy and band interviews I’ve done over the years, all that quote footage that has been in the archives forever waiting to be unleashed.

What I’ve done is used the day-by-day, diary (of a madman) format and stuffed in hundreds of journal entries and quotes, along with masses of live photography and memorabilia shots throughout.

Quick description: large format hardcover, 8 3/4” x 11 1/4”, full color throughout, est. 250 pictures, including ads, tour posters, rare sleeves, shirts, live shots from all eras, including lots of our beloved Randy.

But there’s real textual heft to this thing, at over 80,000 words over 252 high quality pages. No Ozzy book contains more factoids and has such a range of quotations. And despite the easy-read, day-by-day, bathroom read (!) format, I definitely get to say my piece, in the intro decade summaries, in comparative journal entries about other important bands and music trends, about world events. And if that ain’t enough, man, Zakk is off the hook. He’s the comedian in this thing, although Ozzy reels off some barnburners as well. The following is a look at the layout – just a quick scan of a few pages, done without breaking the spine of the book y’unnerstand:
