His wife Sharon mentions in the piece that Ozzy suffers from PRKN 2 – a more mild form of Parkinson’s – for a year, but couldn’t remain silent any longer. Admitting that he’s in “constant” pain and that the last year has been the “most miserable” of his life, the Blizzard of Ozz will head to Switzerland this spring to seek specialized treatment. “We’re going to go wherever we can go to find answers,” added Sharon.
The interview also addresses tabloid rumors that circulated around the holidays that Ozzy was on his deathbed. These were obviously untrue. But the Prince Of Darkness isn’t exactly the picture of health either. Obviously our best wishes are with Ozzy, and his mind is very much on his fans and returning to the road.
“I feel better now, other than the fact that I have Parkinson’s. And I just hope they hang out and they’re there for me because I need them.”
When Ozzy shared a stage with Post Malone at the American Music Awards last fall, he stood for his lyrics but sat in a chair during Posty and Travis Scott’s verses. Dave Grohl and Axl Rose have each performed from throne-style chairs during stretches when they had injured legs.
His new album Ordinary Man arrives February 23. The rescheduled ‘No More Tours 2’ run through America hits Sprint Center on June 26.
