Ozzy's DNA: Researchers wonder why he's still alive
Scientists seek clues from the hard-living rocker's genes about the relationship between genetics and environment

Why is Ozzy Osbourne still walking this earth? Science may hold the answer.

Alcohol and drug abuse has killed too many rock stars to mention, but at 61, Ozzy Osbourne is going strong.

Now DNA researchers in St. Louis say they're part of a team working to determine why decades of substance abuse didn't take down the Prince of Darkness.

Jon Armstrong is chief marketing officer for St. Louis-based Cofactor Genomics. He said Wednesday that Osbourne has asked a Massachusetts human genomics company to map his DNA. Cofactor is partnering in the effort.

Armstrong says the mapping may not offer definitive answers about the longtime Black Sabbath front man's relative longevity. But it could help understanding of the relationship between DNA and the environment.

Osbourne didn't return messages seeking comment left with his agent and his wife's management company.

It's because of metal.
Or he might be pickled like Keith Richards.

He's alive because he is supposed to be alive. When they want him dead he will die. Right now he is still a useful idiot. Useful to whom is anyone's guess. He can't sing, he can't act, he can't talk, he can't think, he can't function. Maybe science would like to tell us just what kind of mechanism that has been placed in him to keep him moving about. Maybe Sharon would like to tell us since she's his handler.

The man's an idiot.
