Rock singer Ozzy Osbourne, recovering from a quad bike crash, is conscious and joking in his hospital bed, his daughter Kelly said.

It's nice to know he has gotten his pills back.
2003-12-11 12:11:02 AM  
Dr. Dick Jack?

You've gotta be kidding. You think this guy got picked on as a kid?
2003-12-11 12:11:05 AM  
"He was in a field and there was grass covering a hole and the bike went in the hole and fell on top of him."

arr, kiddies these don't know how to crash an ATV! 3-wheelers, that was the flavor in my day, certain death, and we liked it.

/landed face-first in the bog, watched the Yamaha bounce down just in front of me

Not quite an "iron man" after all, eh?
lol, heh, hmmmm
2003-12-11 12:12:35 AM  
I'm sorry but this is NOT same Ozzy Osbourne who used to be the lead singer for Black Sabbath. This Ozzy Osbourne is a total asshat!
2003-12-11 12:17:26 AM  
The 55-year-old veteran rocker was still in intensive care and cannot speak after undergoing emergency surgery and being put on a ventilator.

And this differs from his normal home life how?
2003-12-11 12:18:30 AM  
Nice bio Mark!!

Also, nice high horse you're on Mark!!
2003-12-11 12:23:45 AM  
I wonder how much of this will be aired on "The Osbournes". I doubt it though because they were obviously not filming as he had to stumble to the house to alert the staff that he was injured. I wonder if any of his recovery will be aired.

Good luck, Ozzy and family!!
2003-12-11 12:28:07 AM  
Yeah, Mark is a real welcome to the Fark community.

(37 and think's Mark's an asshole)
2003-12-11 12:30:37 AM  
I hope his speech centers aren't permanently damaged.

2003-12-11 12:32:09 AM  
Methinks Ozzy picked the wrong damn week to quit sniffing glue.
2003-12-11 12:35:10 AM  
The reason he was mumbling and incoherant the last 2 years was that he was on 42 different meds, he has since fired that Dr (had his liscense to practice medicine suspended) and has gotten a new one that is really helping him. All this was in a previous Fark link.

I have met Ozzy and his family and wish them the best.
2003-12-11 12:40:16 AM  
Ozzy and a Christmas song? I am so confused.
2003-12-11 12:57:44 AM  
You obviously havent heard him sing swampgas. He can't talk fluently but he can appearently sing. I'm almost positive talking and singing is in two different portions of your brain. Makes sense... I can't sing
2003-12-11 12:58:40 AM  
well maybe if he didn't take so many of the illegal types of drugs, the doctor wouldn't have to give him so many of the legal kind. Honestly I'm sick of all the press that he amd his family are getting. He had some great music 20-30 years ago, time to fade away like all of the other good musician do. Or simply die from and OD.
2003-12-11 01:25:08 AM  
I wanna go fishing with Ozzie.
2003-12-11 01:37:29 AM  
Anyone see the season finale of the ozzbournes this past season? At the end of the show you could understand everything Ozzy said.
2003-12-11 02:11:41 AM  
Nice of you guys to stick up for Ozzie. I'm sure he'd do the same for you. Wahahaha.
2003-12-11 02:16:02 AM  
Outside the hospital, medical director Dr Dick Jack said...

DEAR GOD! The Ozman has been DICK JACKED!
2003-12-11 02:55:45 AM  
Dr Dick Jack hahhaaaaaahahahh

teh funniest
2003-12-11 03:11:56 AM  
At least he won't be able to perform that horrendous version of Changes with his skank ho daughter.
2003-12-11 03:20:41 AM  
"The 55 lb. veteran rocker was still in intensive care and cannot speak after undergoing emergency surgery to reattach a 23lb. piece and a fatty 3 lb. piece."

Sad times.... good luck, Ozzy, and may your flesh regenerate at an alarming rate.
2003-12-11 03:46:51 AM  
Too bad this accident didn't happen BEFORE he and Kelly recorded the duet.
2003-12-11 04:45:52 AM  
Firstly, I have always liked Ozzy - he was a bit of a mainstay when I was a kid at school and it's a crying shame this has happened because I think he does have a good voice despite what happened to him and whats happened since. Secondly, the single release with his daughter is an old Black Sabbath number and very appropriate.
Considering everything else, the man is a comedic genius in 'The Osbournes'a side of him that I didn't think really existed because we all assume the rock and roll lifestyle to be something other than what it actually is.
I would like to wish Ozzy a speedy recovery and hope that he has at least a comfortable Christmas with his family around him.
If nothing else, he loves his family and they love him - and thats all that matters. The guy is an institution and his wellbeing has been national news here.
Get well soon Ozzy!
2003-12-11 05:53:02 AM  
How on earth can he not talk due to a tube in his mouth, but by the same token he can "mouth words" and his "stick his toungue out".....And man, she was really on point with that description of how it happened, probably.

I think she just wanted to stretch her 15 minutes....she is a talentless hack, living off her old mans skills....unlike Paris Hilton, who has her own skillz yo! ;-)
2003-12-11 06:23:39 AM  
I must confess that my first thought when I heard that Ozzy was stable was

"Well, that's a first."

Get well soon, my dark ruler.
2003-12-11 06:37:22 AM  
Further proof that it's REALLY hard to kill Ozzy.
2003-12-11 07:40:01 AM  
SHARON SHARON I've fallen and I can't get up SHARON
2003-12-11 07:49:12 AM  
Still no word on Harriet, though.

I may have to start listening to Fibber McGee and Molly now.
2003-12-11 08:17:06 AM  
Ozzy has the ugliest children in the history of mankind.
2003-12-11 08:29:15 AM  
Who's Mark? And why are forkids and b0rg9 being mean to him? Anyone?

Man, on my old ATV I once hit a rock that was hidden in grass. Handlebar was forced into my ribs and it hurt to breath for a week.

Get well Ozzy.
2003-12-11 08:58:35 AM  
Poor Ozzy! He's just not the same - especially after all those party years he had. Although, I believe he still has a great voice. I happen to catch the Changes duet with his daughter on his wife's show and I think they both sounded great...
2003-12-11 09:00:47 AM  
bigandugly: Mark is 44andConservative, who had something kind of harsh in his bio which is now gone. Looking back at my post, I was harsh myself, so I apologise.
2003-12-11 09:31:59 AM  
What's really cool about Ozzy, is that he was one of the worst bad boys of heavy metal. I'm pretty sure that everyone thought he'd be dead before the age of 30, especially with all of the reckless consumption of drugs and booze. It's pretty amazing that he's even alive and made it to the age of 55. One of rock n roll's horror stories that didn't end in drug-induced death. I'd say that's pretty damn cool.
2003-12-11 09:56:53 AM  
Actually some articles I've read said MTV was filming Ozzy at the time of the accident so we might get to see it after all.
2003-12-11 10:04:02 AM  
I would so love the chance to be able to spend a day with Ozzie and his family. There's something about their "strangeness" (for lack of a better word) that I find appealing.

Get well soon, Ozzie!
2003-12-11 10:04:20 AM  
Couldn't Dick Jack be a hot candy striper instead of some doctor guy? Just Ozzy's luck to get molested again at this stage in the game.
2003-12-11 10:09:05 AM  
Why couldn't it have been Jack or Kelly?
2003-12-11 12:06:45 PM  
Does anyone else think Ozzy's become a media whore?
2003-12-11 01:12:07 PM  
Ozzy couldnt give two farks about being in the media, he's got nothing left to prove. His kids,however......
2003-12-11 01:56:57 PM  
He's awake?!?

You mean REALLY awake or is one pupil capable of contraction?

Maybe they should start using quad bike accidents as therapy for comatose patients.

2003-12-12 11:24:35 AM  
This is a test. This is only a test.

If this had been an actual post, something far lamer would be here.

This concludes our test.

Thank you for your patience.
We return you now to your regular programming.
2003-12-12 01:32:12 PM  
Just a thought, how came you can understand Ozzy better when he sings then when he talks?
