Ozzy Osbourne Says He's "About 75%" Recovered From Spinal Surgery as A&E Announces Ozzy Doc
Ozzy Osbourne has opened up about his slow road back to health in a new interview. "I'm not back to 100 percent. I'm about 75 percent there," the 71-year-old says as he continues to recuperate from back surgery he underwent last year. "Spine surgery is bad news... I've been in such a bad state with pain. I'm still having a lot of pain." He adds, "There was a point [where] I was convinced that I was dying. I was in that much discomfort and pain and misery." The good news is, Ozzy says he's now off pain medication and that he "cannot wait" to get back to performing live. And in even better news, A&E has announced a September 7 premiere date for its upcoming Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne. The documentary features interviews with Osbourne's famous family, as well as artists like Post Malone, Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie. The documentary was initially scheduled to premiere at SXSW in March before the festival was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
