Ozzy Osbourne says he’s ‘feeling better everyday’ as he continues to battle Parkinson’s disease
OZZY Osbourne said he’s ‘feeling better everyday’ as he continues to battle Parkinson’s disease.
It was revealed in January of this year that the rocker had been battling with the debilitating disease for a year before revealing it to the public.
Ozzy, 71, revealed his current state of health to Entertainment Tonight and claimed he’s “feeling better every day.”
“It’s so slow. I go in the swimming pool for an hour every day,” the Black Sabbath frontman revealed.
“I work out every day.”
The rocker also talked about how his condition and the coronavirus pandemic has kept him from doing what he loves the most: perform.
“It catches up with you in the end. I’ve got no complaints. I’ve had a great career,” he stated.
“I had a great time. And I ain’t done yet … As soon as I get back on my feet I’ll [go] out. I can’t wait. Pandemic or not, I can’t wait.
His wife Sharon quickly added: “Once they allow artists to go back and perform, if I have to I’ll wheel him on.”
Ozzy then agreed with her: “I will be happy as well. If my life ended on a stage, so be it. That’s the place I belong.”
Just a week ago, Ozzy was spotted in Los Angeles rocking silver hair instead of his typical black.
But before that, Ozzy stood smiling in a holiday snap shared by his son Jack on Instagram with his wife Sharon and son Jack, 34, Jack’s girlfriend Aimee and Jack’s kids Andy, Pearl and Minnie who he shares with ex-wife Lisa Stelly.
Jack posted the picture to his Instagram and captioned it: “Vacation vibes!”
His fans and friends were delighted to see the special moment, with one writing: “Look at that crew!! So happy for you Jack. Family looks amazing.”
Another fan wrote: “Ozzy is a god amongst men.”
Ozzy released his 12th studio album Ordinary Man at the start of the year despite recovering from spinal surgery.
He told The Sun he believes the record was a lifesaver, giving him a reason to get out of bed in the morning.
Ozzy was forced to cancel shows earlier this year as he recovered from surgery after a fall at his LA mansion and is taking more time out.
The former Black Sabbath singer had scheduled a two-month trip around the US, beginning on May 27 in Atlanta, Georgia but his plans had to be put on ice owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ozzy admitted struggling to cope since being diagnosed with a mild form of Parkinson’s and last performed on New Year’s Eve in 2018.
After the fall, he said surgery on his neck had “screwed all my nerves”.
He is now on a “whole host” of medication to treat his nerve pain.
