The following description was posted on aetv.com:

“’Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne’ traces Ozzy’s life from his childhood in poverty and time in prison, to fronting legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Black Sabbath and successful Grammy Award-winning solo career, to one of rock’s elder statesmen and a loveable 21st century television dad. The two-hour documentary explores how Ozzy has continually reinvented himself and his career to propel himself toward greater success.

As Ozzy turns 70, he reflects on the intimate details of his successes, failures, and his unique ability for survival and perseverance—including never-before-seen interviews about his recent Parkinson’s diagnosis.

The documentary, a selection of the 2020 SXSW Film Festival, also features interviews with Sharon, Kelly and Jack Osbourne as well as friends and fellow musicians including Rick Rubin, Ice-T, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Jonathan Davis, Post Malone and more.”

Destruction Release Mini-Documentary On Socially Distanced Concerts In Switzerland

Destruction have released a new mini-documentary focusing on their socially distanced concerts in Pratteln, Switzerland. The shows took place at the Z7 club on July 3-4 and only 300 tickets were available for each date.

Schmier commented:

“I am very glad that our film team could capture those moments. The first shows after the loosening of the rules in Switzerland for concerts were for sure a special moment for all of us. The fans did a very good job, and the social distancing worked pretty well. For sure much better than in the supermarket or on public transport these days. We all felt safe and sound, and sure, you cannot completely avoid contact, but you can use your common sense. The precautions and government rules have been implemented well and that was important for everybody involved.

It will still be very challenging to bring concerts back into our lives. If masks will be a part of that future or other precautions, the next weeks will show. It is important to take the new challenges and try — instead of doing nothing and just accepting the situation of no shows!

Destruction will continue this path and play a social distancing open air close to Berlin in August. A concept that works for a while in Germany and now this now the first METAL show in that format.

Thanks for all the support & stay healthy and aware!”

New Documentary On Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott To Be Released This Fall

A new documentary focusing on Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott is set to be released this fall. The film, which is titled “Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away,” will be available through Nell Roddy and Robert McCann Finn’s new Irish film and event cinema distribution company Break Out Pictures.

Here’s a description of the documentary [via Blabbermouth]:

“‘Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away’ is a feature documentary, telling the story of how a young black boy from working-class 1950’s Dublin, became Ireland’s greatest rock star. As the lead singer of THIN LIZZY, Lynott was a songwriter, a poet, a dreamer, a wildman. Told extensively through the words of Phil himself and focusing on some of his iconic songs, the film gets to the heart of Philip, the father, the husband, the friend, the son, the rock icon, the poet and the dreamer.”

The film will also feature interviews with Thin Lizzy’s Eric Bell, Scott Gorham and Darren Wharton, as well as U2’s Adam Clayton, Suzi Quatro, Huey Lewis, Metallica’s James Hetfield, and Ultravox’s Midge Ure.

Reynolds said the following:

“We are so delighted that ‘Phil Lynott: Songs For While I’m Away’ — our film about the legendary Phil Lynott — will soon be coming to the big screen! We can’t wait to share it with Irish audiences and to celebrate Philip and his extraordinary life and music.”

Lynott’s daughters Sarah Lynott and Cathleen Howard-Lynott added:

“As always, we are incredibly proud of our Dad and we loved having the opportunity to look at the man behind the music with this film.”

Ice Nine Kills Release “The Disney Revenge Show” Mini-Documentary

Back on April 26, 2019, Ice Nine Kills were supposed to play at the Disney-owned House Of Blues in Orlando, FL, but they ended up getting banned from the venue due to their dark imagery. The band then decided to fire back at Disney by staging a show at the SoundBar in Orlando, FL on July 25, 2019. A mini-documentary on that event has since been released and can be seen below:

Spencer Charnas commented:

“Looking back at the Disney incident fills me with nothing but laughter. When I first heard about the ban I was perturbed strictly because we love playing in that city. But rather than mope and cry about it, I had the idea to poke fun at the situation by creating a merch line of beloved Disney characters and inserting them in slasher movie scenarios. This mini documentary chronicles our triumphant sold out return to Orlando and the chaos that ensued…”

To celebrate the release of the documentary, the group have also launched their “Too Evil For Children II” merch capsule at nightmareontheninth.com.
