Despite suffering from ongoing health problems, Ozzy Osbourne still wants to continue recording songs. The Prince of Darkness appears to be irate due to his most recent surgery. With that, Osbourne gave his fans an update on his health and raised his concerns about his ability to play live on stage.
When he was asked about his 2023 tour, the Prince of Darkness said:
“It is so f*cking tough.
“Because, I mean, I want to be out there. I want to be doing it. This f*cking surgery this guy did. F*cking hell, you have no idea. The thing is, my head is all right, my creativity is okay, my singing okay, but I just can’t f*cking walk much now.”
Due to his quad bike accident in 2003, Osbourne has made several adjustments. He had emergency surgery after that incident because he had broken his collar bone, eight ribs, and a neck vertebra. However, these procedures were insufficient to fully restore him, and later it was discovered that he needs more neck surgery.
Osbourne also experienced difficulty in walking correctly since May. Although he made an unexpected appearance at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, he still wasn’t totally recovered yet and was still hesitant to take the stage once more.
The singer was unable to follow his album Patient Number 9 with a tour. On the brighter side, Osbourne had stated in a previous interview that he had no plans to retire, despite the fact that the surgery has left him still having problems walking normally.
