Ozzy Osbourne has been spending time at home in his garden, target shooting. In a recent radio interview posted on Blabbermouth.net he said that he has shot “thousands of rounds” from his pellet gun. He says, “It’s anything to get my mind off this f***ing pandemic.”

Despite his Parkinson’s diagnosis, he’s not ready to take a vaccine. He said, “I’m not gonna be number one on that f–ing new vaccine. I don’t want to be the first one to wake up with a set of f–ing antlers in the morning.”

About his health, he says he’s still not back to 100 percent after suffering medical issues last year, but is contemplating getting back on stage. Right now, he’s planning on doing that in 2022. He said, “People got to get with this social distancing and mask-wearing, or else it’s never gonna go away.”

When the pandemic struck, Ozzy had just released Ordinary Man, his first solo album in a decade.
