Ill-fated Ozzy Osbourne turns his back garden into a shooting range to keep his mind from wandering

ACCIDENT-PRONE rocker Ozzy Osbourne has a risky new hobby — shooting air rifles in his back garden.

Ozzy, 72, has a collection of ten air rifles and said shooting them keeps his mind from wandering — and has helped fire him up ­creatively during the pandemic.


And the Brummie musician, who had a serious fall in 2019 and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease later that year, says he is now a crack shot.

He said: “I have got this new hobby of shooting an air rifle in the garden. It is a compressed air rifle, not a bullet gun. It is good fun. It gets me out of my head, man.

“When I am in my house, I worry I never am going to walk properly or do another gig. So, I have got to get something to take my mind off of me.”

Ozzy’s firing range in his garden in LA includes a selection of targets.



He said: “I have got a rangefinder thing. It’s astounding when you put it on. It’s f*g great. I am a good shot. I’m hitting them smack in the middle. But this has been great for me. I have been thinking of melodies.”

Ozzy’s hobbies have often got him into trouble.

In 2003 he had a quad bike accident on his Berkshire estate, breaking his collar bone, eight ribs and a neck vertebra.
