Ozzy Osbourne: “The Last Four Years Have Been Sheer Hell For Me”

During a recent interview with Billboard, Ozzy Osbourne further opened up about his recent health issues. The frontman, who is still recovering from major surgery and dealing with complications from PRKN 2, says “the last four years have been sheer hell.”

Osbourne said the following:

“The last four years have been sheer hell for me. I’ve been in such a bad… health-wise. Plus I got Parkinson’s diagnosis. But I’m… you know, [it] takes a lot to hold me down.”

He also added the following while discussing pandemic lockdowns during a separate interview with Forbes:

“At the time I was thinking, ‘Nobody could work, so at least I’m not on my own.’ I couldn’t work, neither could no one else. So I thought, ‘I’ll recuperate pre-tour, I’ll be okay.’ But I’m still fucking suffering now. Not as badly as I was by any means. But I got this thing where they put these leg things on you, bionics, and you do a few exercises and it corrects your walking. Because the problem I was having is balance along with stability. When they cut my neck they cut the nerves. This bionic thing that they do reprograms your brain so you can walk better… It’s fucking scientific now. There was a point where I thought, ‘I suppose this is it.’ And I’d just kind of get up in the morning and doing nothing so I had nothing to get up in the morning [for] and do in the day. But now I’m working out with these new apparatuses, proving to be okay and I’m dying to get back on the stage.”

He went on to say that he still plans to tour again:

“On the road is where it all happens for me. Some nights I’m good, some nights I’m not so good. I’m getting slowly better and I don’t give a fuck if I have to crawl on the stage I will get back on that stage very soon. The date I’m putting in the books is May of next year. I’m going to get well by May. I’ve got to set myself a date.”
