Author(s): Sharon Osbourne
Sharon Osbourne has lived - in her own words - 'fifty lives in fifty years'. As the daughter of notorious rock manager Don Arden, Sharon's childhood was a chaotic mix of glamour and violence, villains and diamonds. In her late twenties, after years of fierce loyalty to her ruthless father, Sharon finally faced up to his devastating betrayals - but her painful decision to break with her family created its own havoc, both emotionally and financially. In rock star Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon found her soul mate, turning his career around and becoming a legendary manager and rock promoter in her own right. Yet Ozzy's drug and drink-fuelled excesses - which culminated in an attempt to strangle her - made their marriage a white-knuckle ride from the start; only her devotion to their three children gave her the will to survive. In her long-awaited autobiography, Sharon Osbourne reveals the truth behind the headlines in her own characteristically frank, intimate and articulate way.
