Ozzy Osbourne Height

"Maybe it's not too late to learn how to love and forget how to hate."

~ Ozzy Osbourne

English singer and songwriter, Ozzy Osbourne is famously known as the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath. He is also known as the "Godfather of Metal".

Ozzy, the Prince of Darkness, has got to have a good height, doesn't he? Well, He used to be described anywhere from 5-feet-10 inches to 5-feet-11 inches tall (maybe even 6") in his heydays.

But from what we have seen of the Prince of Darkness (like with a 6'1" Zakk Wylde), we think the 5'10" number might suit him better after all -- in his prime to be sure and he is far from his prime now.

Now in his seventies, the Prince could be expected and forgiven to lose some height due to age.

The height of Ozzy Osbourne in his prime was

5'10" or 178 cm

Present height is 5'8½"
