She did not give further details on the surgery, but in a Classic Rock magazine interview last month, Aston-born Ozzy said he was waiting for neck surgery.

He said: “I can’t walk properly these days.

“I have physical therapy every morning. I am somewhat better, but nowhere near as much as I want to be to go back on the road.”
