Researchers at the genome sequencing company Knome, based in Massachusetts, are mapping the heavy metal singer's entire genome to get to the bottom of why rock and roll's self-proclaimed Prince of Darkness is still kicking and screaming despite decades of relentless drug and alcohol abuse.

3,000 years from now a future civilization is going to dig up Kieth Richards body and marvel at our skills at preservation and mummification.

He bit a radioactive bat, which gave him the superpower of longevity.

Try “Randy Rhoads” instead.

(keep an open mind and someone will fill it full of something for you)
Ozzy has had some great songs over the years.
IMHO, Ozzy is still alive because of a great wife.
Also, someone else said he’s pickled, which is true. You can’t turn a pickle back to a cucumber.
He must share some genetic makeup with Keith Richards, aka, the Crypt Keeper.
The old joke is that Keith Richhrds was hired to make Mick Jaggar look healthy. What amazes me about Ozzy is that while he can’t string a sentence together while speaking, he sings very well.
