In a new interview with the U.K.’s Daily Mail, Black Sabbath legend Ozzy Osbourne spoke about the accident and moments when he felt he was gonna die.
Here’s the statement:
“I went to the bathroom in the night, lost my balance and landed flat on my face.”
“I saw this big white flash when I hit the floor and I thought, ‘You’ve finally done it now.’ I knew it was bad, I thought I was paralyzed, so very calmly I [told my wife], ‘Sharon, I can’t move. I think I’ve done my neck. Phone an ambulance.'”
He further added:
“The first six months, I was in agony.”
“I’d say, ‘Sharon, you’re not telling me the truth. I’m dying, aren’t I?’
I thought I’d got some terminal illness because the improvement was so slow. I’m getting better, but after the surgery, the nurses asked me on a scale of one to ten how much pain I was in, and I said, ’55!’ Six months of waking up in the morning and being unable to move is a miserable existence.”
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.
