Ozzy Concerned About Driving His Family Mad While Stuck at Home Recovering

By Kevin JP

Over the past couple of years, rocker Ozzy Osbourne has been faced with a handful of medical challenges. He's been dealing with the symptoms of Parkin, a form of Parkinson's disease that he was diagnosed with back in 2003, but didn't disclose until this year. This, in addition to a recent fall that re-aggravated a neck injury from a 2003 quad bike accident, has made it a rough go. Ozzy has said that he was worried he would drive his family "f— mad" when he was stuck home recovering from back surgery.

Actually, what's happened since he's been sidelined at home is quite to the contrary. Ozzy admitted that he and his wife (and manager) Sharon Osbourne are closer than ever now that he is spending time at home, as he recovers from a fall last year that required back surgery and has him living in constant pain. The couple has been married since 1982 and their 38 year marriage is stronger than ever. Ozzy said, 'I've never had a year off in my life! I've never been home this long in 50 years!' Only he seems to mind.

Ordinary Man

Ozzy's announced the North American leg of the tour back in October of 2019 which was going to include Marilyn Manson. It was intended to be in support of his new album 'Ordinary Man', which was released this passed February. There's a short promo video for one of the singles off the album titled 'Scary Little Green Men, in which none other than actor and metalhead extraordinaire Jason Momoa portrays the Prince of Darkness in the teaser clip.

No More Tours 2

Osbourne will be heading to Switzerland for treatment which is set to last for six to eight weeks. However, he's not able to do so until April of 2020. So, instead of starting the tour and potentially having to cancel dates last minute, it was decided to postpone the entire tour until further notice. Ozzy said, 'I'd rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.'

Looking Ahead

'Ordinary Man' features such artists as Elton John, Slash, Charile Puth and Tom Morello in addition to a band that included Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on drums, Duff McKagan of Guns N' Roses on bass and Andrew Watt on guitar and producing. Being that he can't hit the road again for quite sometime, Osbourne has been talking about heading back into the studio again to record another album before the end of the year, hoping to work again with Post Malone's producer Watt.
