It hasn’t been an easy two years or so for Ozzy Osbourne.

The Prince of Darkness did manage to release a new album, Ordinary Man (click here to buy), in February — shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic took over — and scored a huge hit record around the world. That was a much-needed highlight for the rock and roll legend, who has been plagued with various health issues in recent months, publicly announcing a Parkinson’s diagnosis in January 2020.

These debilitating obstacles required Osbourne to undergo spinal surgery, and in a new SiriusXM interview, he provided a bit of an update on his path back from that surgery … and its recovery, which doesn’t sound like a great time.

“I’m not back to 100%. I’m about 75% there,” said Osbourne in the interview. “Spine surgery is bad news… I’ve been in such a bad state with pain. I’m still having a lot of pain. Nothing like it was — there was a point I was telling to Sharon the other day, I was convinced that I was dying. I was in that much discomfort and pain and misery. I thought they were all hiding it from me.”

Best wishes to Ozzy Osbourne on his ongoing recovery!
