yes, xmutex. This was supposed to be informative, not humorous.

Wow, an amazing new source of humor too. No one else has made fun of this yet, right?

Cheers Ozzy. Happy Christmas to you too. We still love you in Brum. Get well soon mate. :)

See my comment here as to why.

Add, he said he was sleeping out of fear of not waking up again from all the pills.

For some strange reason I actually like him.

I call bulls#$! on Ozzy's claim that " the pills" were the cause of his slurred speech and stumbling, delusional episodes.... as a fan of Ozzy from way back, I can honestly say that he's been that way for a few decades.
I first saw the guy in concert way back in the day - Blizzard of Oz, and later the Diary of a Madman tour.... and let me tell you, Ozzy's speech was so slurred, the crowd gave up on trying to understand the lyrics, and settled on thrashing around to the music.
Still, one could argue that he was on drugs at that time as well, leading to his actions... but I saw Ozzy again later on in the eighties, on the Ultimate Sin tour, when he was supposedly "clean"... well, as clean as Ozzy can ever be, I suppose.
And the guy damn near broke his neck running around mumbling, rambling on, and falling around the stage.

But I still love the guy.

i too hooted aloud when i read an article where he and sharon explained how they had "fired" the doctor who had prescribed 13,000 doses of 70 some-odd medications over a period of months. the doc's in some deep shit, the feds are on to his act, and the osbourne's had public ties to him. what a lame-ass attempt to distance themselves. ozzy musta thought it up.

Ozzy had a stroke a few years back.

He's also had trouble slaying the demon.

Ozzy is still on a ventilator following the ATV accident and doctors are reportedly "very guarded" about his prognosis. I'm not sure that making light of the man's failings and foibles is exactly the best thing to do right this moment.

His daughter was on tv last night saying the ventilator was simply to help him breathe-because the broken ribs were making it too painful for him to breathe on his own. She didn't give any indication he was in that bad of a shape, but who knows. *off to google*
