Ozzy Osbourne was told he had AIDS

Ozzy Osbourne was a bit of a party animal with the drugs and alcohol back in his bat biting days. 

He was so strung out once that the doctors incorrectly diagnosed him with having AIDS. 

He said, “I went to the doctor and had an AIDS test and he told me it was positive.  That was one of the worst days of my life.”

He said that he was misdiagnosed due to the impact of his lifestyle on his immune system.

He explains, “When I used to f**king get loaded I would get myself into all kinds of situations.  It turned out that because I was drinking and using drugs so much, my immune system had dropped so that it was a borderline result.  When I went back to be tested again it was negative.”

That had to be a scary, scary day for Ozzy.  I guess that’s the price you pay for abusing your body so much.  But still, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.



  1. I had never been exposed to him much until I saw his show which was crazy, but they were hilariously funny and rediculous especially when he was doing the paint by number and he seemed to have fried his brain, but I’m with jendaniele…love his songs. Didn’t listen to him in his heyday, but listen to him now. **Crazy Train**

  3. Oh man! That’s crazy scary!! I love Ozzy – always have, always will. I think it says something that he and Sharon have been together for so long – that couldn’t have been easy on her!

  5. I can’t even imagine what that day was like for Ozzy and his family. You’d have to appreciate every day after that one, eh?
