Ozzy continues to prove he is one hardcore rocker. The legend himself still plans to go on his 2020 farewell tour if his health allows him to.
Ozzy admits, he hasn’t had the best year concerning his health. “This last year has been hell for me,” he said during CBS’ Grammy Red Carpet Live program. “I’ve had surgery on my neck. I’ve announced to the world that I’ve got Parkinson’s. It’s been one rock ‘n’ roll year for me.”
Earlier last week Ozzy announced he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Along with the recent diagnosis, the star had metal rods placed in his neck after an ATV accident. Ozzy postponed all of his 2019 tour due to health complications.
However, the rocker’s family is hopeful. Kelly Osbourne believes her dad is making phenomenal progress. “Seeing how far Dad’s come this year and how far he’s come in the last week alone has just been incredible,” Kelly said at the Grammys, “I think coming out and telling his truth has been a weight lifted off of his shoulders. And even his physical therapist is saying how far you have moved forward in this last week is insane.”
Osbourne’s new album Ordinary Man is slated to release on February 21st. Ozzy was born to perform and it’s clear he’s not ready to conclude his historic run.
