Ozzy Osbourne is a legend amongst men at the 2020 Grammys. He has been a staple of the music industry and especially in rock music for years now.

On the red carpet Ozzy, along with his daughter Kelly, made his first public appearance since telling the world that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Sporting a black striped suit and a cane, Ozzy showed the world that he was doing ok, even with the life-changing news he had given.

Ozzy is no stranger to the Grammy's stage. In 2019, he won the Lifetime Achievement Award and for the 2020 show, he and his wife were both set up to be presenters during the awards presentation.

This appearance comes just days after the singer and rock star made an appearance on the TV talk show Good Morning America to tell the world that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, a neurological illness that causes stiffness and tremors in the body.

Sharon Osbourne, his wife, explained that the diagnosis is "not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body."

Under a year ago, Ozzy fell in the bathroom and ended up having to get 15 screws in his spine to stabilize him. This would be the first of many hospitalizations in the coming months.

Ozzy said that the year since his fall has been the "worst, longest, most painful, miserable year of my life."

Due to his dipping health and his developing symptoms, Ozzy had to postpone his tour dates in Europe. In a heartfelt video on his twitter, Ozzy addressed his fans and spoke about the upcoming tour dates that he was pushing back. "I'm not dying," Ozzy Osbourne said in the short Twitter video. He continued, "I am recovering, it's just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would. I'm bored stiff of being stuck on a f*cking bed all day."

It is just good to see Ozzy out and about, showing off his style and loving his job. While he now has a diagnosis to work through, Ozzy is still a huge name in the music industry and that is why he wasn't about to sit this one out on the sidelines. Instead, he showed up and rocked it.

Ozzy showed off his style, cane and all, at the 2020 Grammys and we should expect to see him not giving up anytime soon.
