Speaking on The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne, he said: “When I’m alone in a room it’s a bad place. Our heads are our worst enemies at times like this because people are locked in and worried about this pandemic.

They need to unload because if you don’t unload you will be depressed. My therapist suggested that I start meditating again. I’m taking this new antidepressant that’s working wonders.

As for his Parkinson’s diagnosis, the rocker said he was making progress, explaining, “I feel better every day. It’s so slow. I go to the pool for an hour every day. I train every day… it catches up with you at the end ”.

“I have no complaints. I had a great career. I had a good time. And I haven’t finished yet… As soon as I get back on my feet, I’ll go out. I look forward. Pandemic or not, I can’t wait… I’ll be happy too. If my life ended on a stage, so be it. This is the place where I belong.
