Ozzy Osbourne was forced to back out of the upcoming Power Trip event in October due to his ongoing health issues. Recently, he opened up about them.

Per Revolver, Ozzy shared he just had a blood filter removed. He noted, “When I had the blood clots in my legs, they put a filter in your artery to stop the blood clots going to your heart and your brain. It sounds worse than it is.”

Additionally, he said doctors “put a thing down there in my neck, straight down to my groin.” While he didn’t detail what this “thing” was supposed to do, needless to say, it doesn’t seem pleasant.

Earlier this month, Ozzy broke the news about having to back out of Power Trip. He said, in part, in a statement, “Unfortunately, my body is telling me that I’m just not ready yet and I am much too proud to have the first show that I do in nearly five years be half-assed.”

Shortly after Ozzy’s announcement, Judas Priest was confirmed as his replacement at Power Trip.
