Born into a working class family in Birmingham, England, John "Ozzy" Osbourne was plagued by darkness from an early age. Chronically depressed, he attempted suicide multiple times, dropped out of school at 15 and got into petty crime. He got the now-famous O-Z-Z-Y letters tattooed on his knuckles while in prison. After his release, Osbourne hit the rock scene and, after joining a few short-lived bands, he started Black Sabbath.
