Ozzy Osbourne is getting real about his health issues. In a new interview for Radio.com, the singer talked openly about life with Parkinson's disease, as well as other medical complications. "It's not a death sentence," Osbourne says of his Parkinson's. "I'm not shaking".
He went on to explain that the specific form of the disease he was diagnosed with is called PRKN 2, which is different from "mainstream Parkinson's". And according to his doctor, it's actually not that uncommon. "The doctor told me that I probably walk by 10 people a day who have got it and don’t even know they’ve got it," Osbourne said.
Osbourne says farewell tour is simply delayed, not cancelled
Osbourne stated that he currently lives in "unbelievable pain", in large part due to a neck injury he sustained on New Year's of 2018 which even painkillers have been unable to help. He then addressed the cancellation of what he's said is his final tour, revealing that it's only been delayed so he is able to make a physical recovery.
"I cannot go out on the road, until I’m 100 per cent confident that I can pull it off," Osbourne shared. "Because if I go out now, and I can’t carry on, people are gonna think I’ve lost the plot, you know".
