Ozzy Osbourne says neck surgery is in his future, and he’s also having difficulty walking

Ozzy Osbourne has dealt with his fair share of health issues over the years, notably Parkinson’s disease. In a new interview with Classic Rock, Osbourne has revealed that now, he needs additional neck surgery and is also having difficulty walking.

“I can’t walk properly these days,” Ozzy said, following some comments about him “waiting on more surgery” for his neck. “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.” He continued, “At f**king 73, I’ve done pretty well. I don’t plan on going anywhere, but my time’s going to come.”

Osbourne also discussed new music. He’s released plenty of music over the course of his career, both solo music and popular albums with Black Sabbath, but he’s not finished yet. When asked what’s ahead, he replied, “A No. 1 Ozzy album. I’m coming back to England this year, too. I’ve had enough of living out here [America] now. My intention was never to stay out here.”

On top of his fight with Parkinson’s disease and other health problems, Ozzy recently caught COVID-19. Considering his age and pre-existing conditions, fans and family were worried, but it has since been reported that Ozzy is doing much better.

Osbourne’s upcoming “No More Tours 2” trek has been postponed multiple times due to both his health issues and the pandemic, but he does have some shows in the books. He’ll hit the road gain in 2023 for a U.K./European tour with Judas Priest opening. As for new music, Osbourne previously announced that his upcoming record with producer Andrew Watt is finished.
