Ozzy Osbourne updated his fans on his current state and insisted that rumors about his health are not true.
During a recent interview, Osbourne cleared the exaggerated rumors about him. He said:
“This fucking press drive you nuts. I mean, I looked in the magazine, ‘Ozzy’s on his last legs.’ I’m fucking not dying. Come on, guys. Haven’t I’ve had it bad enough already? If I get OK today, if the doctor said to me today, ‘Oh, you can tour,’ it would take another six months to get it together, you know?”
Prior to this, the Prince of Darkness announced his retirement from touring wherein he said:
“Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way.”
However, he recently stated:
“I’ve been working my guts out to try and get back on my feet. I’ve come to the point where Sharon says to me, ‘You know what? The truth of the matter is you can’t keep booking tours and failing, canceling.
“So, if I can ever get back to where I can tour again, fine. But right now, if you said to me, ‘Can you go on the road in a month?’ I couldn’t say yes. I mean, if I could tour, I’d tour. But right now I can’t book tours because right now I don’t think I could pull them off.”
“The only thing I’ve got that keeps me going is making records. But I can’t do that forever. I gotta get out there. I do to the best I can to stay away from the pain medication, but there are times when I go, “You know, I’ve gotta take something. … I mean, last week I couldn’t, I’ve been sleeping great and all of sudden for two back-to-back nights I never slept a wink. If you gotta torture me, just keep me awake for a couple of days. I’ll tell you whatever the fuck you want me to say.”
Although the singer admitted that his ongoing health problems made him feel like “a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest” due to the medications and procedures being done to him. Meanwhile, in some other news, Osbourne won two Grammys for his 2022 album, Patient Number 9, but the rockstar wasn’t able to attend the event.
