Ozzy Osbourne Reveals He’s Been In A ‘Terrible F*cking State’ And That Making His Upcoming Album Saved Him


In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Black Sabbath’s former frontman Ozzy Osbourne talked about how he’s been spending his time in the past couple of years during which he struggled with health issues and revealed that music is what kept him alive.

As you may recall, Ozzy Osbourne’s health took a hit in the past years and he suffered from multiple health issues such as neck surgery, a fall, and hospitalization for the flu. During an interview last year, he had also revealed that he has emphysema which is a respiratory disease.

Although his health problems were already affecting his everyday life, they became even more significant after the outbreak of the pandemic as they positioned Ozzy in the vulnerable and risk group against COVID-19. However, it seems like Ozzy has found a cure that encouraged him to hold on to life.

During the interview, Ozzy said that during these past two years, following his serious injury after he fell at his house in 2019, he’s been in a ‘terrible f*cking state’ both because of that accident and other health issues, and the pandemic. Thus, working for his new album is what really kept him alive and sane because he ‘needed the music.’

As for his upcoming album, he said that he struggles a bit to finish it but that he’s already done 15 tracks. Ozzy added that he has the same production as last time so there are going to be similarities with his previous record, but it will also be different in other ways.

Here’s what Ozzy said during the interview:

I’ve done 15 tracks. It’s kept me alive you know. These past two years I’ve been in a terrible fucking state between the accident and then the pandemic. It’s kept me sane – I’ve needed the music.

I struggle a bit, but slowly but surely we’re getting there. My only concern right now is finishing the bloody thing. We’ve got the same production time as the last time, so there’s definitely going to be some similarities. But you’ll just have to wait and see what you think.”
