The Osbourne family, who spent more than 20 years living in California, is relocating to the UK. Their English home is being prepared for arrival while their California property is being sold. Sharon Osbourne says the United States is “a pretty odd place to live.”
Over the past few years, Ozzy, 73, has dealt with many health issues. A Parkinson’s diagnosis, a neck operation, a bathroom accident, two staph infections, and blood clots are among them.
Sharon is adamant that Ozzy does not feel the need to return home, even if all of these circumstances would be enough to make anyone want to do so.
I was prepared for others to respond that way. But this is not the United States of America anymore. It’s nothing united in any way. America has experienced significant change; it is unquestionably not the same place I moved to.
“The place is f**king absurd on every level. It irritates me that people are being killed every day. God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings. Then there was the concert shooting in Vegas. It’s truly absurd.”
The lead singer of Black Sabbath wants to escape Hollywood’s glitter and glamor. Ozzy wants to escape the flash and lights of Hollywood. He claimed that he is seeking refuge from more than simply horrifying killings.
“I don’t want to pass away in America either. For the love of God, I don’t want to be buried in Forest Lawn. Many well-known persons are buried there, yet it doesn’t feel like the right spot to me.
I’m English and hope to go back home someday. I would relocate to Timbuktu immediately if my wife insisted on it. No, it’s only that I need to go home.”
Earlier this month, Ozzy paid an unexpected visit to his native country when he met with Black Sabbath and performed at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
Not only was it his first trip to the country in almost a decade, but it was also his first appearance in public. He was first approached with the offer six months ago, but he declined.
When Ozzy arrived at Comic-Con in San Diego in July and “looked fine,” the team from the Commonwealth Games contacted his management.
Ozzy Osbourne initially refused to perform, but after being given six days’ notice, he consented. On September 9th, “Patient Number 9,” Ozzy’s debut solo album, was made available.
Additional concerts are not planned, although a studio is being constructed on the Osbournes’ Buckinghamshire home, and a follow-up album with Tony Iommi is conceivable.
