Despite likely doctors’ orders, Ozzy Osbourne is still not slowing down.
After suffering various health issues, undergoing multiple surgeries, and having to back out of the upcoming Power Trip festival, one would think Osbourne would be craving some rest. But for the Prince of Darkness, retirement isn’t an option as the 74-year-old rocker plans to record another album next year and then hit the road once again.
Osbourne updated fans on his health status in a recent interview with Metal Hammer. “I’ve had all the surgery now, thank god,” he said. “I’m feeling okay – it was just dragging on. I thought I’d be back on my feet months ago, I just couldn’t get used to this mode of living, constantly having something wrong. I can’t walk properly yet, but I’m not in any pain any more and the surgery on my spine went great.”
Osbourne released the records Ordinary Man in 2020 and Patient Number 9 in 2022 and will continue making new music into the new year. “I want to do one more album and then go back on the road,” he told Metal Hammer.
No plans about the upcoming album have been set in stone yet, but it is for certain that Ozzy Osbourne won’t be giving up anytime soon.
