There is a saying I’ve heard for years. “At the end of the world, there will be two things left: Keith Richards and Cockroaches.” I would like to add Ozzy Osbourne to that list.
For being 73 years old, he is still going. I’m saying this man is his own Terminator of rock and roll. Me? Just getting up to start a day is a challenge sometimes. Ozzy survived an ATV bike accident, endless surgeries, 15 screws in his spine, survived Covid, pneumonia and continues to battle Parkinson’s. The Prince of Darkness is in the Hall of Fame with Black Sabbath and has been eligible as a solo artist since 2006. Ozzy is in the WWE Hall of Fame, Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame by himself and his family. Sold over 70,000,000 albums worldwide. Top it all off, he has a lifetime achievement award from GQ magazine.
His new album “Patient Number 9” hit #1 on the album charts. The new effort includes the late Taylor Hawkins, Robert Trujillo, Duff McKagan, Chad Smith, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, Zack Wylde and more. I think we should really cherish Ozzy while is still with all of us. Will he get back to touring? The next chapter of Ozzy is still coming soon I hope.
