The legendary Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne recently talks about his decision to relocate from Los Angeles to the U.K. The 73-year-old told the Observer he was “fed up” with the number of mass shootings in the USA. He also said he does not want to die in the U.S. and be among the many stars buried at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
Ozzy Osbourne sheds light on his decision
Ozzy and his wife and manager Sharon, who celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in July. They are planning to spend most of their time at their Buckinghamshire, U.K. estate. When asked by Observer why they’re coming home after so long in California, Sharon insisted it had nothing to do with Ozzy’s health. It is to be noted that Ozzy underwent surgery in June to remove and realign pins in his neck and back from when he had a fall back in 2019.
“I knew people would think that,” she said. “It’s not. It’s just time. America has changed so drastically. It isn’t the United States of America at all. Nothing’s united about it. It’s a very weird place to live right now.”
“Everything’s f***ing ridiculous there. I’m fed up with people getting killed every day. God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings. And there was that mass shooting in Vegas at that concert… It’s f***ing crazy.
“And I don’t want to die in America. I don’t want to be buried in f***ing Forest Lawn. I’m English. I want to be back. But saying that, if my wife said we’ve got to go and live in Timbuktu, I’ll go. But, no, it’s just time for me to come home.”
