A month after announcing that he has Parkinson’s disease, Ozzy Osbourne revealed that he was diagnosed with the disease in early as 2003. 17 years ago.
“I’m not dying from Parkinson’s. I’ve been working with it most of my life,” Osbourne told the Los Angeles Times in a new interview. “I’ve cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, my God!’ You’d go, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him.’”
Ozzy also noted that the medication he takes to control tremors can cause small memory lapses, and then said he plans to resume his solo farewell tour by the end of the year. “When? I don’t know, I don’t want to go back until I’m completely ready.”
His next studio album, Ordinary Man, is due for release in February 2020. Two songs were released. One is “Straight to Hell” featuring Slash, and “Under the Graveyard.” Both with Duff McKagan of Guns n ‘Roses on bass, Chad Smith of Red Hot on drums and producer Andrew Watt on guitar.
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a chronic degenerative disease of the central nervous system that mainly affects motor coordination. Symptoms appear slowly and gradually over time.
