People question me how come i am nonetheless alive, and that i have no idea what to claim. while i used to be becoming up, if you would have placed me up opposed to a wall with the opposite youngsters from my highway and requested me which one in all us was once gonna make it to the age of sixty, which considered one of us could prove with 5 little ones and 4 grandkids and homes in Buckinghamshire and Beverly Hills, i would not have positioned funds on me, no f**king means. yet right here i'm: able to inform my tale, in my very own phrases, for the 1st time.

A lot of it ain't gonna be beautiful. i have performed a few undesirable issues in my time. i have continually been interested in the darkish aspect, me. yet I ain't the devil. i am simply John Osbourne: a working-class child from Aston, who surrender his activity within the manufacturing facility and went trying to find an excellent time."
