Ozzy Osbourne is opening up about his health issues in a brand new interview on SiriusXM.
Last year, the 71-year-old heavy metal singer had several medical issues, including a fall, neck surgery and hospitalization for the flu.
“I’m not back to 100 percent. I’m about 75 percent there, but it’s such a slow recovery. Spine surgery is bad news, man. I’ve been in such a bad state with pain; I’m still having a lot of pain,” he said.
Ozzy added that “there was a point I was convinced that I was dying. I was in that much discomfort and pain and misery. I thought they were all hiding it from me. I remember saying to Sharon, ‘You’ve gotta level with me. Is it worse than you’re making it out [to be]?’ She says, ‘No.’ … I’ve dropped all the medication for pain now.”
Ozzy is looking forward though to getting back on stage and getting back to a normal life as his health improves and hopefully, the pandemic lessens.
“I cannot wait [to get on stage], but I was talking to Tony Iommi the other day, and he was saying with the way it’s going with this coronavirus, indoor shows will be a thing of the past.”
