Ozzy Osbourne is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the 1970s as Black Sabbath’s lead singer. Around this time, he adopted the moniker “The Prince of Darkness.”
Ordinary Man, his most recent album, was just released. This is his first EP since 2010. Despite his cheery demeanour in front of his fans, very few people are aware that this rock musician is suffering from a terrible medical ailment.
The Prince of Darkness talked about his current medical issues. This includes his Parkinson’s Disease diagnosis.
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological ailment that can be fatal. It affects around 10 million people worldwide. The disease interferes with the ability of nerve cells to communicate with one another and convey signals to the brain by destroying the neurons within those cells.
The symptoms will begin with tremors and proceed to affect speech, mobility, and balance.
Osbourne’s Parkins’ Syndrome has previously been revealed to the media. This sickness, like Parkinson’s disease, is hereditary. The fact that he did not utilise medicines to produce his tremors added to everyone’s confidence.
He wanted to keep his illness hidden, but he realised the time had come to be open with his fans.
He wanted to be open and honest about his condition when he spoke to ABC’s Robin Roberts this time with his manager and wife Sharon.
“I’m not good with secrets,” Osbourne admits openly. “Because, you know, I feel like I’m running out of excuses, and I can’t carry it around any longer.”
Sharon added that they were still looking for solutions. They plan to seek professional help in Switzerland to learn how to boost their spouses’ immune systems.
“There are many different types of Parkinson’s; it’s not fatal, by any means, but it does harm parts of your body’s nerves,” she explained.
The rocker suffered from Parkinson’s disease and had neck surgery. This occurred following his terrible fall, during which he struck his face and had metal rods removed from his body after an ATV accident in 2003.
When he fell off the quad bike, he broke his collarbone. He also suffered rib and cervical spine fractures.
In addition, he had surgery on his right hand in 2018 due to a staph infection. After catching the virus, he developed pneumonia in 2019. Both of these events resulted in the cancellation of his tour.
When asked about his admirers, he replied, “They’re my air, you know.” I’ve evolved. I’ve admitted that I have Parkinson’s disease. I sincerely hope they stick around and are there for me because I desperately need them. You see, I need to see my folks. “I feel like I’m missing them terribly.”
Despite everything, this 71-year-old opted to have a good time. In fact, he posted an Instagram photo of himself eating ice cream. Osbourne maintains a cheerful outlook. He wants to go on tour and meet his followers.
