A month after announcing that he had Parkinson’s disease during an appearance on “Good Morning America”, Ozzy Osbourne has now revealed to the Los Angeles Times that it was actually first diagnosed back in 2003.
“I’m not dying from Parkinson’s. I’ve been working with it most of my life.
“I’ve cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, my God!’ You’d go, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him.'”
“It’s been a pretty incredible, interesting career”
“People have written me off time and time again, but I kept coming back and I’m going to come back from this.
“When? I don’t know,” he said. About returning to the live stage, he added:
“I don’t want to go back out there until I’m ready.”
