In a recent chat with the L.A Times, metal icon Ozzy Osbourne went in depth about his various health issues, the possibility of a biopic and his Parkinson's diagnosis.

After Ozzy and wife, Sharon Osbourne appeared on "Good Morning America" in January to reveal that the singer is suffering from Parkinson's Disease, he has now shared that he originally received the diagnosis back in 2003

"I've been working with it most of my life," he said. "I've cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read 'Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,' you wouldn't go, 'Oh, my God!' You'd go, 'Well, it finally caught up with him.'"

The 71-year-old, who endured a late-night fall and a subsequent bout of pneumonia in 2019, was forced to cancel a string of dates of his solo farewell tour, most of which have now been rescheduled for the summer and beyond; "I don't want to go back out there until I'm ready," the recovering artist shared.

He also revealed that his wife has been pushing for a biopic since way back, before the award-winning successes of other films in the same genre, including Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen) and Rocketman (Elton John).

"Don't ask me anything about it," he said, adding that it is very nearly impossible to get his three children to agree on anything. "To get my three kids to agree on one thing, you've got to get up really early in the morning," he said, jokingly.

The singer is also gearing up to release his first solo record in a decade; the album, Ordinary Man, will be a follow-up to his 2010 record, Scream, and is set to drop on February 21.
