After that, it was all downhill.”He said he’s been recovering for almost a year now.”Next month, a year,” Osbourne said “Worst, longest, most painful, miserable year of my life.”There’s been plenty of speculation about the musician’s health since he postponed his concert dates last year.

It’s like you have a good day, a good day and then a really bad day.”Ozzy Osbourne said he’s undergoing treatment for the disease and said fans shouldn’t count him out.”I ain’t done yet,” he said. “I ain’t gonna go anywhere yet.”
