Ozzy Osbourne is currently still dealing with health issues. The singer is now waiting to have his neck surgery following the vertebrae problems he has been handling since his accident on an ATV in 2003 that nearly killed him.
The crash happened during the taping of the hit reality MTV show The Osbournes. The former Black Sabbath frontman who was 55 at the time, jumped behind the wheel of a quad bike and hit the gas for a joyride on his London estate. Before and after Ozzy flipped off the bike was caught on tape and made international news on Dec. 8, 2003.
In 2019, the Prince of Darkness had a fall in February which dislodged the metal rods and bolts in his back and collarbone from the surgery after the ATV crash. He was forced to postpone his world tour and recover at home. During his surgical operation to treat the neck injury, it was discovered that he has Parkinson’s Disease.
Ozzy previously describes 2019 as “Worst, longest, most painful miserable year of my life.” Now, in a recent interview with LouderSound, Ozzy said:
“I’m just waiting on some more surgery on my neck. I can’t walk properly these days. I have physical therapy every morning. I am somewhat better, but nowhere near as much as I want to be to go back on the road.”
Ozzy’s forthcoming neck surgery comes at the same time COVID-19 affected him and most of his family. Meanwhile, aside from health concerns, the Osbournes are busy with new things happening on each of their lives. Ozzy’s new album is expected to be released in September, while his daughter Kelly says she and boyfriend Sid Wilson are having a baby together.
While Ozzy and Sharon are also in the midst of moving back to their home country as they want to stay away from the high Los Angeles taxes and get the convenience of Sharon’s new gig as a morning show TV host in the U.K. Watch the clip below.
