Wondering if science could explain how he survived his forty-year avalanche of drugs and alcohol, Ozzy Osbourne became one of a handful of people in the world to have his entire DNA mapped in 2010. It was a highly complex, $65,000 process, but the results were conclusive: Ozzy is a genetic anomaly. The “Full Ozzy Genome” contained variants that scientists had never before encountered, and the findings were presented at the prestigious TEDMED Conference in San Diego—making headlines around the world.
The procedure was in part sponsored by the Sunday Times of London, which had already caused an international furor by appointing Ozzy Osbourne its star health advice columnist. The newspaper argued that Ozzy’s multiple near-death experiences, forty-year history of drug abuse, and extreme hypochondria qualified him more than any other for the job. The column was an overnight hit, quickly being picked up by Rolling Stone to give it a global audience of millions.
