Tony Iommi has wished Ozzy Osbourne a “speedy recovery” after the BLACK SABBATH singer was hospitalized because of flu complications.
Earlier this week, Ozzy was admitted to the Keck Hospital of University of Southern California. His wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne, said that doctors believe “this is the best way to get him on a quicker road to recovery.”
On Thursday (February 7), Iommi — who co-founded SABBATH with Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward — took to his Twitter to write: “I’m wishing @OzzyOsbourne a speedy recovery and I know he’ll be gutted that he’s had to cancel part of his tour but I’m sure he’ll be back on stage as soon as he’s able. Get better soon my friend. Lots of love Oz, Tony x”
Ozzy reportedly checked into the hospital on Monday (February 4). Sharon and the couple’s son Jack showed up at the hospital with security in tow. Sharon later left and returned a short time later with a suitcase and a blanket — a possible sign that she planned to stay by Ozzy‘s side.
