Rocker Ozzy Osbourne announces Parkinson's diagnosis

Quote:
Rocker Ozzy Osbourne says that he's been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, a nervous system disorder that affects movement.

The 71-year-old Grammy winner and former vocalist for the metal band Black Sabbath said during an interview on “Good Morning America” that aired Tuesday that the diagnosis came after a fall last year.

Osbourne had to cancel tour dates last year due to health troubles. Osbourne said he really wants to get well and get back to performing because he misses his fans.
His wife, Sharon Osbourne, told GMA that the diagnosis “was not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination,” but he had good days and bad days.

He has seemed Parkinsons-ish for a long time.

I agree. He's had the mask like face for years and his walk was a little odd. Poor guy... he's funny and I always enjoyed his TV appearances.

I think he is an amazing artist. But also I remember him saying in an older interview that it is a medical miracle he is still alive considering how much substance abuse he engaged in.
