For years now Ozzy Osbourne has struggled with brutal health issues.

Osbourne has been vocal about the pain he feels regarding his spine and his struggles with Parkinson’s disease. Among the difficulties these health matters have brought him, he has shared that his poor health has held him back from touring.

During a recent interview with Mirror, the heavy metal legend opens up more about these struggles, reflecting back on an incident from four years ago where he fell down and dislodged rods that were placed in his spine and neck.

Speaking about that incident and the current state of his health issues, Osbourne shares the following:

“That was nearly four years ago. It is really awful what is going on. It is a nightmare. Sometimes I forget. I am lying on the couch, go to get up and I cannot do that any more.

“My sense of balance is all over the place. I have physical therapy and am trying to do things on my own. Progress is… f***ing hell, you have no idea. The thing is my head is alright, my creativity is okay, my singing okay, but I just can’t f***ing walk much now.

“But I am determined to be back on stage even if I am nailed to a board with wheels on it.”

It is so heartbreaking that Osbourne has to go through such hell. Thinking of you man <3
