Ozzy Osbourne was spotted in Los Angeles this week marking his first public sighting out and about in months amid his Parkinson’s battle.
The 71-year-old Black Sabbath frontman was nearly unrecognizable after allowing his signature raven locks to go grey.
He swept his hair into a ponytail and settled into the passenger seat of his car while his longtime wife Sharon Osbourne drove.
At one point he raised his hand in front of his face as he appeared to yawn while sitting alone in the vehicle after Sharon stepped out.
Sharon, who sported a close-cropped pink hairdo, was also seen alone that day as she got in a bit of shopping at a local clothing store.
She slipped into a casual ensemble of a color-block sweatshirt and a pair of California chic loose-fitted white trousers.
The Talk co-hostess made sure to take the precaution of wearing a mask as she emerged from lockdown amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Although Ozzy has not been seen out in public in months he did appear with his family on Celebrity Watch Party with a finale that aired July 23.
The reality show is a take-off of the UK show Gogglebox and offers a glimpse at celebrities in their homes watching and reacting to TV.
He went public with his Parkinson’s diagnosis this January after being diagnosed in February 2019.
Ozzy announced this February that he was canceling the North American leg of his No More Tours II concert gigs owing to an excruciating neck injury.
The ‘Prince Of Darkness’ suffered a fall last year and required spinal surgery, ultimately scrapping his tour dates for 2019.
Ozzy was meant to hit the road again this year, but scrapped the North American leg of his tour so that he could seek treatment in Switzerland – only for the coronavirus lockdowns to leave him confined to his home and unable to travel to Europe.
However despite his recent health crises and reduced mobility he has repeatedly declared that he will never abandon show business.
‘You know the time when I will retire? When I can hear them nail a lid on my box. And then I’ll f***ing do an encore. I’m the Prince of Darkness,’ he said this week.
He informed the Daily Mirror that he also plans to finish up No More Tours II after he is able to emerge from self-isolation.
‘When you feel that audience jumping, it’s a better feeling than orgasm. It is the best love affair of my life,’ said the Birmingham native.
‘He’s always had a funny walk so f*** it, you know?’ said Sharon. ‘Let’s make nothing different. No pity, he doesn’t need pity. He just needs a stage.’
Ozzy, who started Black Sabbath in 1969, released a successful solo album early this year called Ordinary Man that peaked at number three on the Billboard 200.
There is also a movie about his life in development and Sharon, who is to be a major character, recently dished about it to the Daily Mirror.
She shared that the raunchy feature will be ‘a lot more real’ than recent sanitized rock biopics like Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman.
‘We’re not making it for kids. It’s an adult movie for adults. We don’t want it to be squeaky, shiny clean and all of that,’ she said.
