Ozzy Osbourne's next video is being directed by his son Jack.

The former Black Sabbath rocker - who is to release new single 'Life Won't Wait' in September - is enlisting the help of Jack to create the promo for the track, in the hope it will lead to a new career path for him.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Jack wants to direct film and television. He's creating Ozzy's next promo. It's being shot in Hollywood and has a bit of a twist, telling a story similar to Ozzy's own life."

Ozzy is currently on his 'Ozzfest' world tour promoting new album 'Scream' - his first in three years - which will take him to a number of cities throughout the UK and US.

The heavy metal legend - who has battled drink and drug addictions in the past and infamously bit the head off a live bat while on stage - recently admitted he doesn't take his continuing success for granted.

Ozzy - who shot to fame as the singer of Black Sabbath - said: "The fact that I've survived and I'm still recording. I've done a lot of stupid things but I've also done a lot of good things. Making it on my own as a solo act was an achievement. I don't take success for granted."
