WATCH: Ozzy Osbourne gives fans an update on his health and recovery

Ozzy Osbourne 17/10/2019

It's been a bloody tough year for rocker Ozzy Osbourne, but luckily it seems the legend is on the mend.

Back in April he was forced to postpone all 2019 tour dates after suffering a series of health scares, including pneumonia and aggravating an old injury from a ATV accident in 2003.

But in a new video posted on social media, Osbourne has given fans worldwide an update on his condition.

"As you probably know, or you may not know, at the beginning of this year, I had a bad fall," he said.

"I screwed all the vertebrae in my neck and had to have surgery. I've got a lot more nuts and bolts in my neck now than in my car."

"I'm not dying, I am recovering — it's just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would. I'm bored stiff of being stuck on a fucking bed all day. I can't wait to get off my ass and get going again, but you're just gonna have to be a little bit more patient. I'm postponing the European tour because I'm not ready."

Osbourne also reminded fans that he has finished a new solo album.

"I'm not retiring — I've still got gigs to do — but when I do come back... I wanna be one hundred percent ready to come out and knock your fucking socks off. And also, there's a new album on the way."
