In more heartwarming Ozzy Osbourne news, the metal icon sent the commemorative platinum records for his solo albums Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman to drummer Lee Kerslake, who’s terminally ill with cancer and says he has to eight months to live.

In an interview with The Metal Voice in December, Kerslake, who played on both those albums, said that he wrote Ozzy a letter asking if he could send him the platinum certifications before he died. “It’s on my bucket list,” Kerslake said.

This past Friday, Osbourne posted a Facebook photo of Kerslake sitting with his newly received platinum records.

“I’m so glad that Lee Kerslake is enjoying his Blizzard and Diary platinum albums,” Ozzy wrote. “I hope you feel better.”
