The Prince of Darkness is wishfully thinking that his health won’t be an obstacle for pursuing his scheduled farewell tour.
In an interview at CBS’ Grammy Red Carpet Live program, Ozzy said “This last year has been hell for me. 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.” Ozzy has just revealed his PRKN 2 diagnosis last week, which was discovered when he was on a recuperation period after a fall that dislodged the metal rods on his neck, which were placed back in 2003 after an ATV accident. This prompted him to postpone his 2019 dates, but he still thinks that he isn’t physically up to speed for the tour’s commencement on May 27th.
“If I’m well enough, I’ll work towards it. I’m having physical therapy every day, five days a week. I’m trying, doing the best I can. Neck surgery’s not easy,” he added.
“Seeing how far Dad’s come this year and how far he’s come in the last week alone has just been incredible. “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,” Kelly Osbourne said, who was by her father’s side at the Grammys.
Ozzy plans to support the upcoming release of his album, Ordinary Man, which will be up for grabs on February 21.
