Ozzy Osbourne Talks Near Death Experience
Ozzy Osbourne claimed in a new interview with the UK’s Daily Mail that he thought he was “dying” after suffering an injury in a fall earlier this year. The Prince of Darkness fell at his Los Angeles home, making his 2003 ATV accident worse that required new surgery. Due to the accident Ozzy never played any shows in 2019 and had to cancel tour dates across North America and Europe.
He told the Daily Mail.
“I went to the bathroom in the night, lost my balance and landed flat on my face,” he recalled (via NME). “I saw this big white flash when I hit the floor and I thought, ‘You’ve finally done it now.’ I knew it was bad, I thought I was paralyzed, so very calmly I [told my wife], ‘Sharon, I can’t move. I think I’ve done my neck. Phone an ambulance.'”
“The first six months, I was in agony,” he said. “I’d say, ‘Sharon, you’re not telling me the truth. I’m dying, aren’t I?’ I thought I’d got some terminal illness because the improvement was so slow. I’m getting better, but after the surgery, the nurses asked me on a scale of one to ten how much pain I was in, and I said, ’55!’ Six months of waking up in the morning and being unable to move is a miserable existence.”
Sharon Osbourne recently revealed that Ozzy‘s new studio album will be released in January of next year along with tour dates and Ozzy recently guest starred on Post Malon’es song “Take What You Want.”
