Ozzy Osbourne is set to undergo surgery to treat an existing neck injury.
In an interview for Classic Rock magazine, the Black Sabbath legend spoke about his recent health struggles.
As part of the conversation, Ozzy explained that he “can’t walk properly these days” as a result of an injury sustained in a quad bike accident at his estate in Buckinghamshire, England back in December 2003.
He still faces lasting damage from his injuries, which also included a broken collarbone, eight ribs, and a neck vertebra.
“I’m just waiting on some more surgery on my neck,” he revealed. “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.”
Ozzy was also asked if he often thinks about mortality.
“At f**king 73, I’ve done pretty well. I don’t plan on going anywhere, but my time’s going to come,” the rocker said.
Elsewhere in the interview, Ozzy confirmed he would be moving back to the U.K. in the near future.
“I’ve had enough of living out here (America) now. My intention was never to stay out here,” he added.
Last month, Ozzy’s wife Sharon Osbourne told Talk TV the singer had tested positive for Covid-19, and she would fly from the U.K. to the U.S. to care for him.
“I am very worried about Ozzy right now,” she said at the time.
Ozzy also sustained serious injuries as a result of a fall at his Los Angeles home in 2019, and publicly revealed he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in early 2020.
