During a recent appearance on “The Jasta Show,” TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider talked about how Ozzy Osbourne “used to carry a defibrillator on the bus because there’s no way Sharon was letting him miss a show.”

“I have discovered the fountain of youth — it is getting harder and heavier as you get older,” Dee said. “It’s inspiring. If you’re an older metal fan, don’t get lighter with age, get harder with age, and get happier with age.

“That’s what’s keeping Ozzy alive, I think,” he continued. That and the defibrillator that’s on the bus, which you probably heard about. You know they used to carry a defibrillator on the bus because there’s no way Sharon was letting him miss a show.

“If Ozzy had a heart attack, you know Sharon would be like, ‘Clear!’, shock him back to life and throw him out on the stage.”
