Ozzy says he is trying to enjoy things as much as he can

During an interview with Kerrang, Ozzy Osbourne opened up about his condition. He said that although he frequently thinks about when his time is going to come, he doesn't worry about it. "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."

Ozzy added that, in fact, he worried about death more when he was younger than he does now, "I just try to enjoy things as much as possible," he said.

The "Godfather of Heavy Metal" admitted he hasn't felt particularly happy after been diagnosed with a form of Parkinson. However, he thinks he would be dead already if he hadn't got motivated by his daughter Kelly Osbourne, to make music. "I wouldn’t be sitting here now if I hadn’t made it. It was the best medicine."
