Ozzy Osbourne is undergoing what’s been described as life changing surgery on Monday (June 13th), according to wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne.
Last month, the 73-year-old Ozzy Osbourne revealed to Classic Rock magazine he would soon be undergoing yet another neck surgery for a quad bike injury he suffered in 2003. Osbourne explained, “I’m just waiting on some more surgery on my neck. I can’t walk properly these days. I have physical therapy every morning. I am somewhat better, but nowhere near as much as I want to be to go back on the road.”
There’s no definitive word as to whether the neck surgery is the specific reason he’ll be going under the knife next week.
- In recent years, Ozzy Osbourne has dealt with a seemingly non-stop string of health issues — including a nasty fall, the onset of Parkinson’s disease, multiple staph infections, pneumonia, the flu, and a burst blood vessel in his eye.
- Ozzy Osbourne‘s recently completed — still-untitled — new album follows 2020’s Ordinary Man, and features guests spots by such legendary players as Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Jeff Beck, Guns N’ Roses‘ Duff McKagan, Zakk Wylde, Pearl Jam‘s Mike McCready, Queens Of The Stone Age‘s Josh Homme, Metallica‘s Robert Trujillo — and Black Sabbath co-founder Tony Iommi guesting for the first time on a solo Ozzy project.
