Ozzy Osbourne: ”At Best, I’ve Got Ten Years Left”

Ozzy Osbourne recently talked with Rolling Stone UK about how frustrating it is for him to be unable to perform live again and how he overcame his health problems.

As stated by Osbourne:

“I’m taking it one day at a time, and if I can perform again, I will. But it’s been like saying farewell to the best relationship of my life. […]”

“At the start of my illness, when I stopped touring, I was really pi**ed off with myself, the doctors, and the world. But as time has gone on, I’ve just gone, ‘Well, maybe I’ve just got to accept that fact.’ […]”

“I’m not going to get up there and do a half-hearted Ozzy looking for sympathy. What’s the f**king point in that? I’m not going up there in a f**king wheelchair. I’ve seen Phil Collins perform recently, and he’s got virtually the same problems as me. He gets up there in a wheelchair! But I couldn’t do that.”

Ozzy continued,

“I don’t fear dying, but I don’t want to have a long, painful, and miserable existence. I like the idea that if you have a terminal illness, you can go to a place in Switzerland and get it done quickly. I saw my father die of cancer.”

“But look, I said to Sharon that I’d smoked a joint recently and she said, ‘What are you doing that for! It’ll f**king kill you!’ I said, ‘How long do you want me to f**king live for?!’”

“At best, I’ve got ten years left and when you’re older, time picks up speed. Me and Sharon had our 41st wedding anniversary recently, and that’s just unbelievable to me!”
