Amid health issues and announcing his retirement, Ozzy Osbourne took home two Grammy awards at the pre-show Grammy Premiere ceremony today. He won best rock album for his new album Patient Number 9 and best metal performance for his song “Degradation Rules.”
The 74-year-old was not able to attend the event but producer Andrew Watt and collaborator/Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo accepted the award on his behalf. They joked that Ozzy just wanted to say, “I love you all and f*** off.”
Ozzy Osbourne won two Grammy awards
Just last week, Ozzy announced his retirement from touring. He wrote on social media, “I have now come to the realization that I’m not physically capable of doing my upcoming European/U.K. tour dates, as I know I couldn’t deal with the travel required. Believe me when I say that the thought of disappointing my fans really F**KS ME UP, more than you will ever know. Never would I have imagined that my touring days would have ended this way. My team is currently coming up with ideas for where I will be able to perform without having to travel from city to city and country to country.”
