Osbourne was recruited by Geezer Butler to be the vocalist for the band Rare Breed in late 1967. Although Rare Breed broke up after playing only two shows, Osbourne and Butler reunited to form the bank Polka Tulk Blues, along with guitarist Tony Iommi and drummer Bill Ward. They changed their band name to Black Sabbath in August 1969.

They began playing a heavy blues style of music, including gloomier and darker lyrics. Black Sabbath signed to Philips Records in November 1969 and released their first single “Evil Woman” in January 1970.

Their debut was a huge commercial success. Their successive albums Paranoid (1970), Master of Reality (1971), and Volume 4 (1972) all received similar unfavourable critical reviews but were resounding commercial successes. 

Their 1973 album Sabbath Bloody Sabbath was their first album to receive positive reviews from the mainstream press and was their fifth consecutive platinum album in the United States. 

However, Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath in 1979 due to alcohol and drug problems but went on to have a successful solo career. After leaving Black Sabbath, the band’s manager Don Arden signed Ozzy to Jet Records.

He released 13 studio albums, the first seven of which received multi-platinum certifications in the US. Other albums of his include Diary of a Madman (1981), Speak of the Devil (1982), No Rest for the Wicked (1988), and No More Tears (1991), among others.
