Face it, Ozzy Osbourne is basically a god in the rock and metal world. The iconic singer has had an outstandingly successful career as a musician, both as the frontman of Black Sabbath — making him a founder of metal as we know it — and on his own. While his career is still going strong, Osbourne has definitely had his ups and downs throughout 2019 so far.

A long battle with several medical issues and a recent injury have led to the cancellation of his entire 2019 tour. Some fans are distraught that they have to wait another year to see him perform, others are relieved and would prefer he focus on his recovery. Regardless of what happens, Loudwire wanted to reflect back on our beloved hero's life and career in a positive way. In the meantime, all we can hope is that he makes a full recovery and support him in doing what's best for him.
