In a new interview with Weekend Magazine, Ozzy Osbourne looked back on the incident when he attempted to strangle his wife Sharon in a very intoxicated state.
“I woke up in a cell in Amersham police station [in England], and I didn’t know how I’d got there.
“So I called the guard and said, ‘You’re going to think this is insane, but what have I done?’ He read the charge sheet and it said, ‘John Michael Osbourne, charged with attempted murder, Sharon Osbourne.’
“I couldn’t believe it when I heard. It was scary. I’d break my neck four more times to have had that not happen. I can’t even remember what happened.”
When Sharon was asked as to why she stayed with Ozzy, she added:
“Because I love him. He’s never done anything cruel when sober. And I’m proud of him. Despite everything he’s been through – a lot of which he’s done to himself – he keeps bouncing back. He’s like Iron Man.”
Ozzy concluded, saying:
“I was a complete loser.”
Ozzy Osbourne’s health issues have kept the rocker away from live shows for more than a year. Ozzy postponed all his 2019 tour dates, both in North America and Europe. Postponing tours were meant for Ozzy to recover from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. Ozzy fell at his Los Angeles home, aggravating years-old injuries from his 2003 ATV accident that required new surgery.
Legendary JUDAS PRIEST have confirmed that they will take a part in a previously postponed European tour with Ozzy Osbourne, which will be rescheduled for 2020. Legendary BLACK SABBATH singer has announced the postponement of all his 2019 tour dates, inclusive of shows in North America and Europe, as he recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia. Ozzy has been delaying all the tours due to the prolonged sickness and we are expected to see him back in action sometime next year. Ozzy is also going to release an album next year which will be the first album in over a decade
