Legendary heavy metal musician Ozzy Osbourne made a shocking revelation on Tuesday about his previously silent battle with Parkinson’s disease.
On the latest episode of “Good Morning America,” Osbourne and his tv personality wife, Sharon appeared for an interview. Speaking to Robin Roberts, the couple opened up about Ozzy being diagnosed with the debilitating disease back in February 2019.
“It’s been terribly challenging for us all. I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum,” Ozzy told Roberts said pertaining to his December 31 show in Los Angeles back in 2018. The 71-year-old continued, “Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”
Black Sabbath fans couldn’t help but worry for the band’s frontman after Sharon previously revealed that he was rushed to the hospital in February last year. The tv personality revealed that her wife suffered from serious complications from the flu at the time.
It was also Sharon who revealed on Good Morning America that Ozzy’s condition is now at stage 2. “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,” She said on the show. “And it’s, it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
Two months ago, Ozzy released an announcement that his “NO MORE TOURS 2” concert tour is rescheduled for October 2020. It was initially scheduled to kick off this month.
