Book Soup – West Hollywood-CA

A little girl, who must have been around 2 or 3 years of age at the most, was wearing a shirt that said ‘Ozzy Rules’, pretty much summing up the general opinion among the huge crowd that had gathered on the Sunset strip outside the Book Soup today. The reason and the occasion for this gathering was to meet Ozzy Osbourne and get copies of his recently released autobiography signed by the man himself. The queue of people extended well beyond the block within which the book store is located. It turned out to be a good decision for me and my buddies to join the line early, almost five hours before the signing started at 7 o clock!

The anticipation and excitement was apparent among the waiting fans and some of them went totally wild when cameramen from some news or TV channels started going around filming. One particular young fan even started singing ‘Diary Of A Madman’ which was quite amusing for everyone around him.  Even a team of Romanian TV personnel were going up and down the queue, asking people how they felt. They asked us too, and of course we were excited. When I told the guy that I’ve read the book already, he asked me how the book was and which was the best part.

We finally got in at a few minutes past 7 o clock and first we saw Ozzy’s wife Sharon, daughter Kelly and a couple other people standing and talking among each other in the space between two shelves. The moment finally arrived when I got to see Ozzy, get my book signed and say to him, ‘Thank you Ozzy!’ The man looked happy doing the signing session and didn’t seem to be grumbling or complaining, unlike some of the other famous rockers whom I’ve met recently. When I thanked him, he looked up and said with a smile on his face, ‘You’re welcome’.

All in all, it was a great event and a wonderful opportunity for fans to meet the legend.
