Ozzy Announces Parkinsons

In a bit of news that doesn’t seem terribly surprising, Ozzy Osbourne this morning announced on US television that he has Parkinson’s Disease.   I think most long time fans suspected this, but it was never announced until this morning.

There’s a video clip of this available here from the Good Morning America show:

Ozzy received the diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease last February after he experienced a fall and underwent subsequent surgery. Now, the singer is taking both medication for Parkinson’s and nerve pain.

Sharon Osbourne added more about the Parkinson’s diagnosis. “It’s PRKN 2,” she said. “There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s; it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s — it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”

  1. Watching him not getting short of pronouncing his intention to perform, does not make me happy at all under these circumsstances.

  2. Sad news and of course all Sabbath fans wish him well!!!
