Ozzy Osbourne has officially received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The frontman and his wife/manager Sharon revealed the news on ITV’s “Loose Women.”

When asked if he was vaccinated, Ozzy said “Of course,” before Sharon added:

“Well he says ‘course’, he only had it yesterday!.”

Ozzy continued:

“My arm was a bit sore yesterday but I’m glad I got it. As soon as I got it, I felt relieved.”

He also commented on Sharon’s battle with COVID-19, saying he was “worried”:

“It’s inevitable you’ll know someone who has had it before it’s over. There’s not a lot I could do. I just hope and prayed she didn’t get really sick or even worse.”

He went on to say that he would “struggle” without Sharon, because she’s his “life.”

This news comes shortly after Osbourne said he wanted to get the shot, because if he didn’t “there’s a good chance [he] ain’t going to be here.”

Sharon Osbourne Cleared To Return Home Following COVID-19 Diagnosis

Metallica, Foo Fighters, And Red Hot Chili Peppers Members To Be Featured On New Ozzy Osbourne Album

It was previously revealed that Ozzy Osbourne was already working on a follow-up to “Ordinary Man” and now we have some more details on the effort. According to producer Andrew Watt, the album is “about halfway” done and it will feature contributions from Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers).

Watt told Guitar World the following:

“We’re about halfway through. But, you know, it’s been hard with COVID and everything to keep him safe. We all test every day before we work and it’s just me, Ozzy and my engineer. So it’s taken a little longer this time, but it’s cool because the last one was made in this, like, swift love affair of passion, like, ‘Oh my God, this is incredible!’ [laughs]

But this time everyone’s moving a little slower and we’re taking a little more time. And the songs, there’s some songs on there that are like eight or nine minutes long that are these really crazy journeys. I’m really excited about it.”

He also had the following to say about the various guests:

“There’s a bunch of people involved. I can’t say for sure until the end, but I started doing a bunch of basic tracks with Chad and Robert Trujillo, who used to play in Ozzy‘s band. And Taylor Hawkins also came in and played a bunch on the record as well, which adds a different flair – it kind of harkened back to Ozzy‘s ‘80s era, in a great way. And I think it’s so cool for a rock fan to be able to listen to half an album with Chad Smith on drums, and then you flip it over and you get to hear Taylor Hawkins.

And you know, the last album was really special for everyone involved. And so there was no point in Ozzy or me doing this again unless we thought we could bring something new to the table. And I feel like we’re achieving that.”

He also added the following when asked about the sound of the record:

“Well, we’re just halfway through, so it could still change. Some of these songs we have could wind up not even making the album. So I can’t really say yet. But in the end it’s all Ozzy’s decision. When he tells me we’ve got the album, that’s when I’ll stop.”
