Ozzy Osbourne is an English musician, songwriter, and television personality who rose to fame in the 1970s as the lead vocalist of Black Sabbath. This is when he acquired his title “The Prince of Darkness,” because of his dark voice.

He just released a new album, ‘Ordinary Man.’ This is his first EP since 2010. Despite all of that goodwill he shows to his followers, few people are aware of the fact that this rocker has a debilitating illness.

During an interview with Good Morning America, the ruler of darkness revealed that he has been having health issues lately. This includes his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative, and incurable illness. It affects more than 10 million people across the world. The illness destroys neurons that control nerve cell communication and the transmission of messages to the brain. Tremors are the first signs; they will later affect movement, balance, and speech.

Ozzy Osbourne did, in fact, reveal that he had Parkin Syndrome. This is a hereditary condition that has features similar to Parkinson’s disease. He also assured his fans that his tremors were not caused by drug abuse. Ozzy wanted to conceal his illness but decided it was time to come clean to his followers.

When asked by ABC’s Robin Roberts with his manager and wife Sharon, he wanted to be truthful about his health problem this time.

“I’m no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore ’cause it’s like I’m running out of excuses, you know?” Ozzy confesses.

Sharon added that they are still looking for answers. They will go to a specialist in Switzerland to get competent advice on how to strengthen her husband’s immune system. She said, “There are 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.”

The musician also had to go through a neck operation in addition to his Parkinson’s disease. This was after his horrible fall, when he fell on his face and knocked out the metal rods that were previously inserted in his body as a result of an ATV accident back in 2003. He fractured his collarbone when he fell off the quad bike. He also fractured several ribs and vertebrae in his cervical spine as a result of the fall.

Aside from that, he also had to undergo surgery on his right hand in 2018 after he caught a staph infection. He also battled the flu and pneumonia in 2019. Both of these circumstances have caused the cancelation of his tour.

When asked about his followers, he responded, “They’re my air, you know. I feel better. I’ve owned up to the fact that I have — a case of Parkinson’s. And I just hope they hang on and they’re there for me because I need them. I wanna see my people, you know. It’s like I’m — I miss them so much.”

Despite it all, Osbourne remains upbeat. He wrote on his Instagram account that he was enjoying an ice cream after having hand surgery. This was following the removal of one of his hands. Osbourne is still optimistic. He stated that he wanted to continue creating musing and touring. He also said that he wants to meet and interact with his followers across the world.
