‘Ozzy gets up in the middle of the night to go to the loo, on the way back, he tripped on the carpet under our bed and fell against the corner of the night table, which is made of mirror.
‘He hit it at such a speed. [He was] taken to hospital. A few years ago he was in a motorbike accident and had metal bones out in his body. The accident moved all the metal rods and the bones that they were screwed into all splintered.
‘Then he has trouble with his neck and they had to do two operations on him. He is recovery now, thank God, but every day he has to work with the physiotherapist. [He was in] terrible pain and his pain is [because] he is not good at being at home.
‘He wants to be back on the road, back with his band, so he is pining. Really the challenge is not his injuries, it’s his state of mind and keeping it positive.’
