Ozzy Osbourne has said that he knows he “can get back onstage”
Ozzy, who is now 73 years old, was recently asked in a new interview with Kerrang! how he would rate the chances of getting his farewell shows back on the road. He said: “I am going to put 110 percent into getting myself out there. Time is my most valuable asset now. I’m 73. I don’t think that I’ll be here in another 25 years. I’ve got a goal: the goal is to get back onstage. I had my last surgery in June, I can’t have any more. So whatever I make of it is entirely up to me now. Even if I manage one show, then fall over, [I’ll have done it]. But I know that I’m going to carry on. I know I can beat it. I know that I can get back onstage. It’s just that I’ve got to get off my butt and go for it.”
Ozzy and his wife and manager Sharon, also made an appearance on yesterday’s edition of “Good Morning America“, where he discussed his recovery from the surgery he underwent back in June to remove and realign pins in his neck and back, saying: “Before I would be talking to you like this,” he told Chris Connelly, hunched over in his chair. “Since I had this surgery I have improved significantly.”
Ozzy went on to reiterate that his mobility these days is “not great”, saying: “I have to negotiate everywhere I want to go and I tire easily. But I am well. My family has been absolutely wonderful while I’ve been laid up.”
The legendary BLACK SABBATH frontman is set to give his first U.S. performance in two years tonight (September 8) at the first day of the NFL season. It was announced Monday that Ozzy Osbourne would be the half-time performer for the game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Buffalo Bills.
