Ozzy Writes a Self-Help Book
I’m not sure how I missed out on the news that Ozzy Obsourne writes an advice column. Maybe it’s because he seems least likely to have good advice… but then again, the man has lived through a lot. The column “Dr. Ozzy” first appeared in the London Sunday Times several years ago, then expanded to the pages of Rolling Stone, and now, a book. “Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy: Advice From Rock’s Ultimate Survivor” hit stores October 10th.
Billboard.com says the book features Ozzy’s signature foul mouth, “tempered by his surprisingly common sense approach.”
On some of the questions he gets, Ozzy tells Billboard,
“People ask me all kinds of strange things, and if I can’t answer, I’ll say, ‘How can you write to me and it goes in this newspaper and millions of people will probably read your problem? You say you’ve got a hemorrhoid or some s***? Go to the doctor! I don’t know the actual physical breakdown of the way it all works. I don’t say, ‘Well, go and buy five aspirins and a f****** jar of jam, and rub it on your a**.’
