Because Osbourne‘s health stopped him from going to the event, Andrew Watt (his producer) and Robert Trujillo (METALLICA‘s bassist and a collaborator on his album Patient No. 9) accepted the awards on his behalf.

Ozzy recently revealed that he is no longer touring due to his deteriorating health.

As a result of his retirement, Ozzy had to cancel a planned UK tour with JUDAS PRIEST, which has already been cancelled on three occasions.

In January 2019, Ozzy experienced an unfortunate fall at home that caused rods to dislodge in his back and neck, which has been part of his recovery process since then.

His physical condition has worsened after the accident he had in 2019, and the medical treatments he tried haven’t succeeded in restoring his mobility and wellbeing. The 74-year-old heavy metal musician, who is also living with a form of Parkinson’s Disease, made the heartbreaking choice to end his days of touring.
