By Elisha Fieldstadt, Celebrity | Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne revealed Tuesday that he has Parkinson’s disease. In an interview with Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America,” Osbourne and his wife and manager, Sharon, said the rocker was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disorder last February.
“It’s been terribly challenging for us all. I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum,” Osbourne, 71, said referring to his Dec. 31, 2018 show in Los Angeles. “Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”
Osbourne was also hospitalized in February following complications from the flu, his wife said at the time.
Sharon Osbourne said her husband has the Parkin 2 gene. “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,” Sharon said. “And it’s, it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
