Ozzy, we will always love you! With his failing health, the rock superstar has been forced to make one of the most difficult decisions of his life. Our prayers are with him – he has all of our support.
Ozzy Osbourne, the legend of Black Sabbath, has lived in LA for 20 years. But apparently America has bored him and is planning to return to his native country, England.
Born and raised in Birmingham, Ozzy became known in heavy metal music. Recently, Ozzy’s wife, Sharon Osbourne, spoke of their life in America and said, “It’s a very weird place to live right now.”
In recent years, “The Prince of Darkness” had some health complications where he had to undergo surgery.
In 2003, there was an accident with bicycles. Since that day he did not fully recover and in 2019 he fell in the bathroom and dislodged metal screws in his spine.
“I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night, lost my balance, and landed flat on my face,” Ozzy explained.
“When I fell to the ground, I noticed a large white flash and said to myself, ‘you’ve finally accomplished it now.’
“I knew it was serious, and I thought I was paralyzed; thus, I remarked very gently to Sharon, ‘Sharon, I can’t move.’ It appears that I’ve broken my neck. Dial 9-1-1 for an ambulance.”
According to Sharon, Ozzy’s decision is not related to his health condition or the diagnosis they gave him for Parkinson’s Disease.
“I knew people would think that. It’s not swimming. It’s just my time. America has changed so drastically. It is not the United States of America at all. Nothing’s united about it,” she said.
He told himself what he thinks about America.
“Everything’s f*cking ridiculous there. I’m fed up with people getting killed every day. God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings. And there was that mass shooting in Vegas at that concert… It’s f*cking crazy,” he told The Observer.
He’s also fed up with Hollywood’s glam and everything it brings.
“And I don’t want to die in America. I don’t want to be buried in f*cking Forest Lawn,” the memorial park in LA where many celebrities are laid to rest.
“I’m English. I want to be back. But saying that, if my wife said we’ve got to go and live in Timbuktu, I’ll go. But, no, it’s just time for me to come home,” he added.
10 years ago he went to Birmingham where he joined Black Sabbath. The group performed in cities.
Ozzy received an offer to perform several times, but he was not feeling confident being on stage due to health problems.
However, once he felt fine and performed in July at Comic Con in San Diego, he was given another offer which he accepted.
Regardless of his decision, we wish Ozzy and his family the best.
