Ozzy Osburne, former lead singer of Black Sabbath, solo musician, and television personality, met Sharon Arden Levy in 1971. Sharon was working for her father, music executive, Don Arden, who'd just signed Black Sabbath. In a 1989 interview with People Magazine, Sharon recounts the meeting: "Ozzy walked into my father's office without shoes, with a water faucet dangling from his neck, and sat on the floor. I was terrified!"
Sharon and Ozzy married in 1982 and have 3 children. Ozzy says the important things in life are "I'm about caring, I'm about people,and I'm about entertaining people. I'm a family man, a husband, a father...and a lot of things from the past we won't talk about." Their marriage hasn't always been roses...more of a roller coaster...but love wins in the end.
