No one has lived a harder rock and roll life than Ozzy Osbourne. However in recent years the rocker has had to settle down and now we are finally learning why.
In a new interview with Good Morning America the rock legend revealed that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. He said that he received that news last February.
Ozzy said in the interview with Robin Roberts,
It's been terribly challenging for us all. I did my last show New Year's Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.
It was after that show that he got the diagnosis of PKRN 2. Sharon Osbourne elaborated:
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.
Ozzy has a brand new album coming out this February called Ordinary Man, and songs on there certainly have the Prince of Darkness coming to terms with his own mortality.
We're wishing Ozzy all the best while he and his family deal with battling this disease.
