Ozzy Osbourne, founder of Black Sabbath reveals a deeper look into the soul of this famed Rock 'n' Roll idol in the July/August issue of Risen Magazine on newsstands July 11th. The in-depth interview and original photographs paint a much different picture than fans are used to seeing and yet is still vintage Ozzy -- known and loved by millions from The Osbournes, Ozzy's reality TV show on MTV. Just count the number of Âexpletives deleted.Â
Risen Magazine, a cultural collage of original interviews, photographs and the search for truth; the inner truth of the artists and icons featured, is breaking new ground. It seeks not the same old, tired stories of the famous; Risen digs for their personal search for meaning in a confusing world. Risen is also known for it's exploration of truth in terms of values, in religion and the secular world, so what gives? Ozzy is not known as the Poster boy of sound moral values. Publisher of Risen Magazine, Michael Sherman explains:
ÂIt's easy to judge a book by its cover, isn't it? Only when the book is opened and explored can one find the true story. Ozzy Osbourne tells us in his interview, he stopped his emotional growth when he began a life of drugs and he started drinking at age 12 or 13. Now some 43 years later, he is pursuing his personal truth and is 13 months sober and counting. By exploring the whole truth, both the light and the dark of it, we as human beings begin to make some sense out of life. We want people to think and begin the search for their own personal truth on the meaning of their life sooner, rather than later. The honesty of Ozzy is riveting. Who could ask for more from anyone?Â
