Osbourne Reveals New Tumor Found, Hoping to do ‘One show’
The health issues of rock ‘n roll legend Ozzy Osbourne have taken a turn for the worse.
During a recent procedure, a vertebral tumor was found.
Now, Ozzy is hoping that he can recover well enough to do one more show for his fans.
About three years ago, Osbourne took a nasty fall, which led to multiple surgeries being needed.
Osbourne was having very serious spinal issues, and doctors had to perform four additional surgeries in an attempt to fix the damage that took place from the fall.
Osbourne recently stated, “It’s really knocked me about. The second surgery went drastically wrong and virtually left me crippled.
“I thought I’d be up and running after the second and third, but with the last one they put a f***ing rod in my spine. They found a tumor in one of the vertebrae, so they had to dig all that out too.
“It’s pretty rough, man, and my balance is all f***ed up.”
Osbourne knows the life he led took a toll and, quite frankly, he is lucky to be alive today, but he is not sure for how much longer.
The nature of the fall and the surgeries that followed meant that Ozzy never got to say goodbye to his fans, and that is all he is hoping for at this point.
He stated, “I never got the chance to say goodbye or thank you.
“Because my fans are what it’s all about. If I can just do a few gigs… They’ve been loyal to me for f***ing years. They write to me, they know all about my dogs.
“It’s my extended family really, and they give us the lifestyle we have. For whatever reason, that’s my goal to work toward. To do those shows.
“If I can’t continue doing shows on a regular basis, I just want to be well enough to do one show where I can say, ‘Hi guys, thanks so much for my life.’
“That’s what I’m working towards, and if I drop down dead at the end of it, I’ll die a happy man.”
I can tell you this… if Ozzy finds a way to get on stage one more time, I don’t care where the concert is, his fans will be traveling from all over the world to see him on stage that final time.
Get well, Ozzy, because we would love to hear you live just once more.
