OZZY OSBOURNE Was Diagnosed With Parkinson’s Back in 2003
We learned last month that OZZY OSBOURNE had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, which is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. It appeared at the time that OZZY OSBOURNE received the diagnosis in 2019, but in a new interview OSBOURNE revealed he had been diagnosed with the disease in 2003. During an interview with the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday, February 12th OSBOURNE admitted he was “first diagnosed back in 2003.” Last month, OSBOURNE appeared on Good Morning America and indicated that his diagnosis came from a year ago. In the interview with the Los Angeles Times, OSBOURNE said:

“I’m not dying from Parkinson’s,” O”I’ve been working with it most of my life. I’ve cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, my God!’ You’d go, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him.'”
Last month SHARON OSBOURNE, OZZY’s Wife and manager told Good Morning America
“It’s PRKN 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. And it’s … like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
OZZY OSBOURNE is currently taking medication to deal with the disease and he is about to release his first solo album in a decade titled Ordinary Man, which comes out on Feb. 21. To date OZZY OSBOURNE has released several singles including “Under the Graveyard,” “Straight to Hell” and the title track. The album features appearances from GUNS N’ ROSES members SLASH and DUFF MCKAGAN in addition to ELTON JOHN and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer CHAD SMITH. OZZY OSBOURNE also plans to tour to support the record as well with tour dates planned in the later part of the year.
