Ozzy Osbourne admitted that he has “10 years at best” to live (5 photos)

1 December 2023

According to the legendary rocker, he was left “virtually crippled” after numerous operations on his back. Despite this, Osbourne, 74, still has a lot of life left in him and is "pissed off" by reports that he is "fighting his final battle".

The former Black Sabbath frontman, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2003, told Rolling Stone UK that doctors discovered a tumor in his spine during his fourth back surgery.

"I'm not afraid to die, but I don't want to live a long, painful, miserable existence. I like the idea that if you have a terminal illness, you can go to Switzerland and end your suffering. I saw my father die of cancer."

"I told Sharon that I recently smoked a joint, and she said, 'Why are you doing that? This will kill you!" I asked, "How long do you want me to live?!" At best, I have 10 years left, and when you're older, time speeds up. Sharon and I recently celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary , and it's incredible!"

Talking about the operations he had to undergo after a fall in 2019, he admitted:

“It unsettled me. The second operation was extremely unsuccessful and practically left me crippled. I thought that after the second and third I would be cheerful and cheerful, but during the last operation they inserted a damn rod into my spine. A tumor was found in one of the vertebrae, so I had to scrape it out. It's very hard."

Last year, Ozzy underwent "life-changing" surgery to remove and realign a series of pins in his neck and back from a 2003 quad bike accident.

Speaking on his Ozzy Speaks SiriusXM channel, the musician said:

"I'm fighting for my health, for example, last Monday I had a filter removed. When I had blood clots in my legs, the doctors put a filter in my artery to prevent the blood clots from getting into my heart and brain. It sounds worse than it actually is. Monday "I went to remove the filter. Blood clots are clogging everything. It's just disappointment after disappointment."

"I feel like a one-legged man in an ass-kicking competition. The only thing that keeps me going is making albums. But I can't do this forever. I have to get through it. I'm still in constant pain. I'm doing everything I can not take painkillers."
