Ozzy Osbourne has spoken to Radio.com about his recent revelation that he was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease back in 2003.
“Everybody thinks when I had this fall last year: ‘He found out he had Parkinson’s.’ I’ve known about Parkinson’s since 2003. It’s not a death sentence. When I got diagnosed, I went, ‘Okay.’
“The one that I have is called P2.”
“It’s a mild form of Parkinson’s at the moment. I’m not shaking. The doctor told me that I probably walk by 10 people a day that have got it that don’t even know they’ve got it.”
Clarifying that the shows have been “postponed,” not canceled, Ozzy said:
“The way I look at it, and I’ve spoken to [wife and manager] Sharon about this, I cannot go on the road until I’m 100 percent confident that I can pull it off. ‘Cause if I go out now and I can’t carry on, people are gonna think that I’ve lost the plot. So I’m not gonna go out there until I can give them the show that I wanna give them, ’cause it’s not fair to them.”
