British icon Ozzy Osbourne to undergo surgery for the fourth time at 74

John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence during the 1970s as the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, during which period he adopted the nickname "Prince of Darkness".

Ozzy Osbourne has offered an update on his health after undergoing extensive spinal surgery and other treatment following a fall at home in 2019 that aggravated injuries he suffered in a near-fatal quad bike crash in 2003.

In the first episode of the newly revived “The Osbournes” podcast, the 74-year-old BLACK SABBATH singer revealed that he will need to undergo a fourth operation as well as get an epidural injection.

Ozzy said: “My lower back is, I’m going for an epidural soon because what’s happening, what they’ve discovered is the neck has been fixed, below the neck there’s two vertebrae where the bike hit me and disintegrated, there’s nothing left of ’em.”

“And all I know is right now, I’m in a lot of pain, I’m in a lot of discomfort,” Ozzy Osbourne continued.

Ozzy and Sharon confirmed that this would be “surgery number four” for the 74-year-old musician, who expressed optimism about the upcoming procedure.

This past July, Ozzy canceled his appearance at the upcoming Power Trip festival due to his ongoing health issues.
