For those that might not recall, the famous rocker Ozzy made quite a name for himself after he infamously bit the head off of a bat during a rock concert in 1982.

The “Crazy Train” hitmaker and Jack are both high-risk with regards to COVID-19 and he talked about he and his family are doing during the pandemic.

“I’m doing great you know,” the media personality shared. “Just been kind of keeping my head down and trying to stay as healthy as possible.”

Meanwhile, Jack said his 71-year-old dad, who was recently diagnosed with Parkinsons is a “little depressed because he can’t do anything.”

“And he’s fallen victim to watching the news all day,” Osbourne’s son shared, according to Entertainment Tonight. “I’m like, ‘Dude, turn that crap off. [Watch] a little bit in the morning, a little bit at night. Get the you know, the broad strokes. But let’s unplug the IV of news right now.”
