Ozzy Osbourne wished he could have attended the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, his hometown.
Black Sabbath’s frontman, 73-year-old Aston, a Birmingham native, was thrilled to hear the band’s 1970 hit ‘Paranoid,’ at Monday’s (01.08.222) games.
He captioned an Instagram clip of TV coverage, “This was played at today’s #CommonwealthGames. It was amazing to be there with you all. Amazing for Birmingham!”
Tony Iommi (Sabbath guitarist), 74, was joined to perform the dream sequence, “Hear my Voice” – which was based on the title track of the 2020 film ‘Trial of the Chicago Seven”. It was reimagined last week by Indigo Marshall and Gambimi, local RnB vocalists, at the Alexander Stadium’s opening ceremony.
Ozzy is currently recuperating from major surgery at home in Los Angeles.
Ozzy is currently dealing with Parkinson’s disease and COVID-19 after a terrible quad biking accident in 2003.
He sustained neck injuries that were further aggravated by a 2019 slip and fell, which resulted in 15 screws being placed into his back.
Ozzy, who had undergone the June operation, said that he is now at home and recovering comfortably.
“I feel the support and love from my fans. I want to thank everyone for their good wishes, prayers, and thoughts during my recovery.
The “Dreamer” singer acknowledged that he is currently experiencing a slow climb back to health.
Ozzy was able to get back on his feet last month and was delighted to see fans at Comic-Con San Diego.
He stated, “It’s fantastic, it’s amazing. You know, I love to see people. This has been my most difficult task in the last three years as I have been trying to heal from my surgery. I am getting there. It’s a slow climb up, you know.”
His desire to attend the Commonwealth Games is a result of Sharon, 69, sharing that Ozzy wants to return to England following his recent surgery.
She stated, “He’s doing well, he sends his love. He still has one operation to go and he is dying to return home.
Ozzy is now a talent manager and TV personality. She recently said that she has to take care of him “a lot” due to his health problems.
She stated that it was very difficult because of the Parkinson’s disease and the accident. This is why? “Why is that happening?”
Ozzy will soon release his new solo album, “Patient Number 9”, on September 9.
