As if our medical system in the U.S. isn't already the laughing stock of all civilized nations, Ozzy Osbourne has announced he will be releasing a medical book in October. The book, titled Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy - Advice from Rock's Ultimate Survivor, will be a collection of Ozzy's most popular articles during his tenure at the Times thus far.
The Prince of Darkness' column is co-written with biographer Chris Ayres, who also co-wrote I Am Ozzy with the Black Sabbath frontman. The singer notes that while the column may be useful, it's still entertainment.
"He brings me the column things and I just joke about it, you know," Ozzy told PulseOfRadio.com in 2010. "'Cause if you believe me, you'll end up in the lunatic asylum."
Not all of Ozzy's commentary revolves around his legendary substance abuse. He also offers experience gained while helping his wife Sharon deal with cancer.
"[It] puts a lot of stress on that little wotsit that hangs down at the back of your throat - the epiglottis, or the 'clack,' as I've always called it. In the mid-1970s, I was taking so much coke, I tore my clack in half," he notes in one story.
