Ozzy Osbourne unfortunately reawakened a handful of old injuries in 2019 after falling in the middle of the night. According to Sharon Osbourne at the time, the fall "dislodged metal rods in his back, neck and shoulders from an old injury." Ozzy underwent surgeries in 2021 to rectify the issue, and now according to Sharon he's got one more to go. "He's doing okay. He's got one more operation left to do and then he's dying to come back home," she said in a recent episode of Uncensored. Of course we wish Ozzy a safe and quick surgery, and an easy recovery at home.
The Daily Mail recently reported that the Osbourne family filed for permission for a "rehabilitation" wing at their home. The wing is reported to include "'an abundance of stopping and sitting' spaces, 'discreet grab rails and aids' and 'soft non-slip surfaces' as well as a self-contained nurse's flat" among other helpful features as Ozzy battles Parkinson's disease.
In lighter Ozzy news, the Prince Of Darkness recently completed his new album due out sometime this year. Ozzy recently added that he'll be making some announcements about the record in the coming weeks, meaning we should be hearing something soon.
All we know so far is that the new record has quite a few guest musicians. So far that list includes producer Andrew Watt playing guitar, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith on drums, and then contributions by:
- Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi
- Black Label Society guitarist Zakk Wylde
