Black Sabbath legendary frontman Ozzy Osbourne has had a rough 2019 and had to cancel a tour due to a staph infection and fall.
Ozzy spoke to the SiriusXM show – Ozzy’s Boneyard saying:
“It’s been one of the most f*****-up years of my life. I broke my neck in January, I had pneumonia, I’ve had f****ing blood clots – I’ve had everything this year.
“It’s been an eventful year, to say the least. I have been in such pain.
“I was doing the farewell tour and it was going great. I was singing better than I have in years and I was really happy. I went home for a short break and I got two staph infections in two of my fingers. God knows how that happened.
“That cleared up. Then I did the New Year’s Eve show at the Forum in Los Angeles. That was the last gig I did, because the following February, I went for a bathroom break in the night and lost my footing and I hit the deck like a fucking ton of bricks.”
Ozzy adds: “A few years back, I had a quad bike accident. I’d done some damage there, but they just patched me up. For the last 10 years, I’ve been getting electric shocks down my right arm.
“So when I fell down just after New Year’s Eve, it all caved in.”
Ozzy is on the mend and appears to be making a nice recovery. Ozzy has a new album due for release in January 2020. There is also a vinyl box set of Ozzy Osbourne’s solo material to be released on 29 November titled ‘See You on The Other Side’. Available from the official Ozzy store.
