Sharon has given an update on Ozzy’s health during an interview on Steve-O‘s Wild Ride! podcast Sharon says Ozzy is “doing really good. Along with his Parkinson’s diagnosis, Ozzy is still recovering from surgery he had last year. The surgery was to repair an old injury he sustained during a 2003 ATV accident.
For Sharon, it has been difficult for the family to see Ozzy deal with such health problems recently.
“It’s heartbreaking,” she says. “It’s heartbreaking to see this. He’s had this ride in his life, and then suddenly BOOM you are floored. And to have your health taken away, no matter what you’ve got money-wise or anything in the world, it’s something you can’t fix.”
Along with the health update, Sharon also shares that Ozzy is currently working on his next album with producer Andrew Watt. Sharon says. “He’s starting his second album with Andrew Watt right now. And you can’t stop him. He’s doing it.”
“Ozzy says that as far as performing goes, he has to end it his way,” she says. “Because it was his farewell tour that he was on before he had his accident, but he still had a year to do of that tour. There were seats sold for the next year, but the accident stopped it all. But he said it’s not gonna end just like that, it’s gonna end his way. And he’s gonna go back out. And even if it’s just one huge show to say goodbye, he’s going to do it.”
As well, Osbourne’s new documentary The Nine Lives Of Ozzy Osbourne arrives this summer. Produced by Jack Osbourne, the documentary shows the Black Sabbath vocalist’s life and career throughout the years. The film will also show his struggles with his Parkinson’s diagnosis and previous health issues. The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne is the first documentary about Ozzy in over ten years.
Ozzy released his latest solo album Ordinary Man back in February 2020. The album was produced by Watt and was recorded while Ozzy recovered from his surgery and related illnesses.
