This was actually pretty entertaining for Ozzy fans and it has a couple full videos and Ozzy gives details about the infamous bat, etc. Definitely worth a watch.

Ozzy Osbourne-The DVD Diary Of The Heavy Metal Madman
Eric Ericson | Venice, Florida USA | 10/12/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This well put together documentary, made in 1991, showcases the incredible life of the Heavy Metal Madman, Ozzy Osbourne. Starting off with his childhood and finishing with his successful "final" 1991 No More Tears tour, this is a must own for any fan of hard rock. With over 24 songs from his solo career as well as his work with the legendary Black Sabbath, you'll be jammin' forever! And if you think other behind-the-scene shows dish out the dirt, it definately doesn't compare to the voice of Oz! He, as well as other rockers from bands like Motorhead, Metallica, Def Leppard, and Motley Crue, tell you all the insane stories of life on the road with Ozzy, as well as his time with Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, & Bill Ward, otherwise known as Black Sabbath. You get such a great collection with this DVD: The 1970 Black Sabbath Paris performances, the Randy Rhoads demos, the 1985 Live Aid reunion, the complete unedited videos for "Breaking All The Rules" and "No More Tears", the Moscow Peace Festival, and the list goes on and on. At over one and a half hours long, this DVD will just make you "Bark At The Moon" with insane delight. All Hail Ozzy!"
Ozzy Unleashed !

"This is a truly amazing dvd with concert footages aplenty ranging from his days in Black Sabbath all the way to his kick-ass solo career. You can notice the "bass" change in the dvd when he removes himself from the Black Sabbath era as there is a lack of heavy bass in most of their songs. Turn it up real loud , and as the dvd shifts to the solo career " I don't want to change the world " just shifts into overdrive with amazing frantic concert footages guaranteed to put some goosebumps on you , forcing you to chant " Ozzy ! Ozzy ! "
It basically starts off with Ozzy giving his views on his Black Sabbath days , and others sharing their thoughts. It slowly moves on to Ozzy's solo career where he speaks off Randy Rhoads , his family and musical direction. This dvd gives a good overview and history of the " Mad Man " himself , and whether you're an Ozzy fan or not , you're guaranteed to be a huge one after this !"
What happened to the footage from the VHS????????????

"I love this DVD, don't get me wrong, but there was WAY MORE footage on the VHS tape. Where is the footage of Ozzy talking about killing his wife when he was drunk. There was also a lot more footage of Randy Rhoads and Ozzy talking about his death. Did that all disappear or what? I'm not trying to be morbid or anything, but why would that stuff be taken out??????????"
Go inside the mind of a mad man and you may never return!

"Ozzy, should you ever read this review, then I wish to convey my apologies. As an 80's raised metalhead, my allegiance was towards Judas Priest and Iron Maiden and the assorted bands that were inspired by those respective camps. I had no real appreciation for your being one of the founding fathers of modern metal, but rather had wrtten you off as a publicity hungry ham trying to jump start his solo career. Watching this vid, it's obvious that there's mucho substance beneath the style and I listen to your music with a more open ear. This vid doesn't just flash a few obligatory videos and then "The End". It conveys some serious attitude that makes for an entertaining biography even if you're not into Ozzy. For me, no detail is neglected. My favorite part: that old fart lawyer who represented the parents of that loser who offed himself. Forget Sixx, Cooper, Rubin, Ulrich and Lemmy in their recollections. That guy was a riot! As a matter of fact, if you're going to release a new album, call it "Get the Gun...Shoot..Shoot..Shoot" just to anger him! I'd buy it in a sec!"
