Heavy Metal Legend Ozzy Osbourne Reveals That He Almost Died From A Manicure. “It Almost Killed Me Man.”
Hey Sharon! It sounds like your husband Ozzy is once again, lucky to be alive.
The 69-year-old rocker had to recently cancel a string of shows on his US tour after contracting numerous and quite serious infections in his thumb.
That infection decided to pester Osbourne by spreading throughout his right hand, which caused it to swell to “The Size of a Fucking Lightbulb!”
At least according to the Ozzman, you won’t find that in the official hospital records.
Ozzy Osbourne and his former giant hand have said, “I’m having the best time of my life — apart from that fucking thing with my thumb, and I didn’t realize that it was very dangerous.” – “It Almost Killed Me Man.”
“I was in hospital for a couple of days and had emergency surgery,” Ozzy continued… “And I remember waking up in the morning and my wife Sharon saying: ‘What the fuck have you done to your hand?’”
Doctors actually told Osbourne that had the infection gotten into his bloodstream, he certainly could have died.
“The funny thing is they reckon I got it from a manicure!” Ozzy said. “It won’t stop me from heading to the UK this February.”
Osbourne had surgery back in October but it’s only recently that we’re learning what the true cause of his injury.
“Here Lies Ozzy Died Of Manicure, No Fucking Way Man! I Wasn’t Going Out Like That!”
And it’s a good thing that Ozzy had Sharon by his side to tend to his injured thumb. The couple actually celebrated 35 years of marriage earlier this year, with Sharon sharing a throwback photo of the pair and captioning it, “Thank you Ozzy for 35 crazy & wonderful years. You carry my heart in yours, and it’s getting older and needs protecting. Happy Anniversary.”
