Ozzy Osbourne has been recovering from a number of health issues that have plagued him for well over a year now, but The Prince of Darkness had a positive update during an appearance on CBS’ The Talk on recovering during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ozzy appeared on the show with wife/co-host, Sharon, and his daughter, Kelly, and said on recovering in quarantine, “It’s been good actually. I’ve been recovering from surgery I had last year. So I’ve never been at home this long in my whole career.”

He added, “So I have a chance to see my wife’s side of the fence, more than me being on the road. It’s had its moments, I must confess…I’m good. I’m getting better. It’s a slow process, but I’m getting there, slowly but surely.”

Ozzy had spine and neck surgery following a nasty fall in his home in 2019 which aggravated old injuries he sustained from his 2003 ATV accident that nearly ended his life. Before his fall, Ozzy was hospitalized in late 2018 with three different staph infections in his right hand. He was then in the hospital with complications from the flu that then developed into pneumonia and resulted in a stint in the ICU.

In January, Osbourne revealed on Good Morning America he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. He would later say in an interview with The Los Angeles Times that he was actually first diagnosed with Parkinson’s back in 2003.
