After Ozzy‘s son Jack asked, “Are they fusing discs?”, Ozzy replied, “I don’t know what the fuck they’re doing. All I know is right now, I’m in a lot of pain, I’m in a lot of discomfort.

“I said to the doctor yesterday, you know what I’ve heard, which I have, people have discs replaced that are worked on and they become the strongest things in the bone,” he added.

Ozzy also explained why he has always walked in a way that sees his head lead his body, saying: “In my back, the two discs, and the muscles on my shoulders have separated from my skeleton, and that’s why I lean forward as it’s like gravity is bringing my head forward.”

Back in February, Ozzy Osbourne appeared on SiriusXM’s Ozzy Speaks and shared a health updateThe Prince of Darkness first said he had been hard at work on getting back on touring. 

“Well, I’ve been working my guts out to try and get back on my feet,” Osbourne reveals. “I’ve come to the point where Sharon says to me, ‘You know what? The truth of the matter is you can’t keep booking tours and failing, canceling.’ So, if I can ever get back to where I can tour again, fine.”

Explaining why he couldn’t book a tour at the moment, Osbourne admitted that he wasn’t feeling healthy about touring.

“But right now, if you said to me, ‘Can you go on the road in a month?’ I couldn’t say yes,” he answers. “I mean, if I could tour, I’d tour. But right now I can’t book tours because right now I don’t think I could pull them off.”

In the continuation, Ozzy touched on his current health, saying that making recordings keeps him alive. He then revealed he still suffers pain.

“You’ve got no idea,” the musician comments about his health. “I feel like a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest. The only thing I’ve got that keeps me going is making records. But I can’t do that forever. I gotta get out there… [I’m] still in constant pain. I do to the best I can to stay away from the pain medication, but there are times when I go, ‘You know, I’ve gotta take something.’

“I mean, last week, I’ve been sleeping great, and all of a sudden for two back-to-back nights. I never slept a wink. If you’re gonna torture me, just keep me awake for a couple of days. I’ll tell you whatever the fuck you want me to say.”
