Ozzy’s Son Ditches the Decks

Text by Jonty Skrufff (Skrufff.com)

Ozzy Osbourne’s son Louis has given up DJing and enrolled in law school, according to a report in this week’s edition of British legal magazine The Lawyer.

The 31 year old former public schoolboy who also recently got married, carved a career for himself mainly in the States and chatting to Skrufff four years ago admitted he felt more comfortable DJing outside the UK.

“I’ve always said that I would go wherever my work is and I’ve always put myself about. I’ve played in Australia, most of Europe, Ibiza, and tried to break the American market and there’s where the hooks have caugh,” he explained.

Britain is so over-saturated with DJs that often you need to go further afield to progress with what you want to do and in fact I’ve always found that the further you go away from home the more interest you create around yourself. That’s the way it has worked out for me, anyway. Surely I could do the same here, despite this being a very competitive market place, it’s just a matter of putting the time into it, but ultimately you take the opportunities that you’re given. My opportunities have fallen elsewhere.”

He also demonstrated a cautious side at odds with the uncertainties his DJ lifestyle carried, when asked what advice his Father had shared.

“I was worried about the possible recession that might have followed 11/9 last year and he said ‘In times of war or hardship, people always want to be fed and always want to be entertained’, “ he said.
