Ozzy Osbourne, 71, admitted that 2019 was a terrible year for him because he had Parkinson’s disease, which is not a death sentence, but it affects certain nerves in his body.
The world-known rocker said he feels better now when he “owned up to the fact that I have a case of Parkison’s,” he said. “And I just hope my fans hang on, and they’re there for me because I need them.”
The Black Sabbath singer revealed it all started when he suffered a fall in February 2019 and was referred for emergency surgery.
“When I had a fall, it was pitch black. I went to the bathroom, and I fell. I remember lying there thinking, ‘Well, you’ve done it now.’ Really calm. Sharon got me an ambulance. After that, it was all downhill”, Ozzy Osbourne said.
“I did my last show on New Year’s Eve (2018). Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”
He described the last year as the “worst, longest, most painful, miserable year of his life.” The famous singer is now on medication for Parkinson’s and nerve pain.
The first ones to notice that Ozzy Osbourne’s health had deteriorated were his children – Kelly and Jack. “The hardest thing is watching somebody that you love suffer,” his 35-year-old daughter Kelly said.
