Former ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell recently expressed his support for Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne as the wife of the former BLACK SABBATH singer battles cancer.

"I guess I don't know them too well, but I've known them for a long time. And they've always been helpful to us. Of course I can empathize with it. My mother died of cancer and I had a good friend of mine pass away this year, Randy Castillo, of cancer as well. He was actually involved in the Ozzy camp as well. Like I said, it's a tough thing, and you gotta keep hope. And hopefully things will work out the best for them and I give Sharon all my prayers and hopes for her. I hope she's OK. I really like her. She's a great woman."

Cantrell added, "She's a cool person to hang with, too. I had a lot of really good times with her."
