Ozzy Osbourne Gets Healthy, Breaks Ankle: Radio.com Minimation

No (more) tears were shed by the metal legend.

On Minimation, we comb through the Radio.com and CBS Radio interview archives and animate interviews with legendary artists. In this interview from 1992, Ozzy Osbourne discusses the then-new tour for his No More Tears album, and he also talks about a recent injury. 

In 1992, if you told a metal fan that in 23 years, Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath would be working on a new album—and that album would be a follow-up to a previous release [13] that went No. 1 in America and around the world—that fan would have have figured you were riding the crazy train.

But on so many levels, Ozzy’s past few years would have been very hard to predict back then. Having a chart-topping album? Being back with Black Sabbath? (And for that matter, even still being alive in 2015?) None of those things would have seemed likely in ’92.

Back then, he had put himself on the path to sobriety (and not for the last time), but he still had some troubles. For instance, as it happened, after cleaning up and starting to look after his health (hey, he was in his early 40s by then!) he suffered a pretty rough injury in the form of a broken ankle. (How did he avoid such injuries in his drug heyday? Who can say.) Watch the video above the the story behind this particular injury.

Ozzy, sans Sabbath, has two dates in Mexico scheduled for August, and he headlines Ozzfest Japan in November.
