Osbourne explained that before recording the album, he thought he was done for. However, his love of music was the best medicine he could've asked for.

“If you saw me at the beginning of last year, you’d think I was fucked,” Osbourne said in his Kerrang! interview. “But I honestly think making this album is the best medicine I could have had. I was doing something, something I like to do. I wish I could do more, but it just felt great.”

Ozzy Osbourne recently explained the severity of his condition on 'Good Morning America' and what it's like living with Parkinson's.

“I got a numbness down this arm from the surgery; my legs keep going cold,” he said on the show of his condition. “I don’t know if that’s the Parkinson’s or what, you know, but that’s — see, that’s the problem. Because they cut nerves when they did the surgery. I’d never heard of nerve pain, and it’s a weird feeling.”

“For the first, say, four months, I was absolutely in agony,” he continued. “I was in agony beyond anything I ever experienced before in my life. It was awful. I’m taking physical and occupational therapy classes, but the progress is very slow.”

However, he recovered enough to record his latest album and his efforts have paid off.

“Working with him and hanging out with him and being around him, you can’t tell,” Malone said. “You can tell he has a little difficulty getting around, but he’s so strong.”

“Do I ever think about when my time’s gonna come? I think about it [but] I don’t worry about it,” he said in the Kerrang! interview. “I won’t be here in another 15 years or whatever, not that much longer, but I don’t dwell on it. It’s gonna happen to us all.”

He seems to be doing better than he was when Rolling Stone talked to him two years ago.

“If I’m alone in my head, it’s a bad area,” he said. “It’s always, ‘Dead. You’re gonna die. There’s gonna be a war. Donald Trump’s gonna send us all to hell.’ … He probably will.”
