OZZY OSBOURNE's Son To Be Featured In Documentary About Children Of Rock Royalty

Louis Osbourne, Ozzy's son from his first marriage, is featured in a new film called "Singing in the Shadow: The Children of Rock Royalty", a look at what it's like growing up with a parent (or parents) who are rock stars.

Ozzy reportedly turned down a request by Montreal filmmaker Alan Handel to be interviewed for the production, which also includes in-depth interviews with Sally Taylor (daughter of James Taylor and Carly Simon), Simon Collins (son of former GENESIS singer Phil Collins), James Raymond (the son that David Crosby gave up for adoption at birth), Sarah Lee and Abe Guthrie (children of Arlo Guthrie and grandchildren of Woody Guthrie), A.J. Croce (son of TIME IN A BOTTLE singer Jim Croce), and Teddy Richards (son of Aretha Franklin). The two-hour documentary will have its world premiere next month on U.S. cable network Bravo.

"One of the themes is that the parents were on the road a lot of the time," Handel told Montreal Gazette. "The parents were either huge stars or ambitious. It was a time of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, so there were plenty of distractions and things to be involved in that didn't necessarily lead to good parenting. So all of them, to one degree or another, felt somewhat abandoned. Some have reconciled, some haven't. All of them are trying to work out their relationships with these parents that are so successful and larger-than-life."
