Who knew that the crazy train had finally pulled up at a station? Ozzy Osbourne recently announced that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s after spending an entire year making the rounds of hospitals and clinics. It makes one thing very clear- the 70s weren’t exactly the best time to be around. Sure, the music was at its peak, and people were really living up to the hype of rock and roll, but people didn’t really know how to care for their lifestyle.
After he fell down last year, Osbourne had required several surgeries for his back and neck, following which he declared 2019 to be one of the toughest years of his life. Add to his woes the neurodegenerative disease which can get quite fatal as the days go by. It is unfortunate in a world where we see celebrities as gods, we expect them to be perfect in every way. But in Good Morning America, Osbourne quite frankly spoke about his sufferings- one that came long after his struggle with drugs and the ‘Rockstar’ lifestyle.
The last fall has been the latest addition to Ozzy Osbourne’s injury. One of the legends of the metal genre, he recently had a staph infection back in ’18, and then pneumonia the same year. He had to cancel several shows because of that, which obviously put a damper on the spirits of metalheads all around. But what can we do? These singers are human too- and hence prone to the same injuries as you and I. While we can agree that they did live a very luxurious and quite dangerous lifestyle, Parkinson’s disease occurs over a long period of neglect.
His wife recently mentioned in an interview that Parkinson’s, albeit dangerous, wouldn’t get fatal just yet. Sharon Osbourne, who is giving their marriage another shot following multiple reports of Ozzy having affairs, mentioned that Parkinson’s would play a very negligible role in their lives. The couple wouldn’t let a disease break down their happy marriage and lifestyle, because as she claimed, it would simply be like having a bad day among several good ones.
While both have assured viewers and fans that Parkinson’s wouldn’t really kill Ozzy Osbourne, he still would have to be on strict medication. Speaking to Good Morning America, he stated that his hand was numb post surgery- something that could be a result of Parkinson’s or surgery. Anything could be up the dice.
Apparently, the old man still hasn’t lost his sense of humor. But I sincerely hope, that the legend Ozzy Osbourne makes a quick and swift recovery, for the world of metal owes him a lot for his dedication to music.
