Ozzy reveals today that he has Parkinson's and seeks therapy

Ozzy took time and spent some time with Good Morning America to reveal he could no longer hide his health struggles and that he is on a ‘whole host’ of medication to treat his nerve pain.

It began, he said, when he suffered a fall last year and had to undergo surgery for it.

After that, he started experiencing nerve pain and doctors have had a hard time pinpointing whether the fall, the surgery, or his condition are to blame for his condition.

Insisting he was ‘far from’ his deathbed – as had been misreported – he said he wanted to ‘own up’ to his condition for the sake of his fans.

‘It has been terribly challenging for us,’ he said of the last year. ‘I had to have surgery on my neck which screwed all my nerves. I found out that I have a mild form of….’ he said before looking to his wife to finish his sentence.

Sharon chimed in: ‘It’s Parkin 2 which is a form of Parkinson’s. There are so many different types of Parkinson’s.

‘It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination but it does effect the nerves in your body. It’s like you’ll have a good day, then a good day and then a really bad day.’

Ozzy continued: ‘A year ago I was in a terrible state.  I’m on a host of medication, mainly for the surgery.

‘I’ve got numbness down this arm and my legs are going cold. I don’t know if it’s the Parkinson’s or what. That’s the problem.’

The couple revealed they have exhausted the medical options in the US and will travel to Switzerland in April to seek advice from a professor who specializes in the condition.

‘We’re going to go wherever we can go to find answers,’ Sharon said. Ozzy added: ‘We’re lucky we can afford to do that.’

He said he’d felt ‘guilty’ hiding the diagnosis for months and now is relieved to be able to share it.

‘To hide something is hard – you never feel proper. You feel guilty. I’m no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore. It’s like I’m running out of excuses.

‘I feel better now that I have owned up to the fact that I have a case of Parkinson’s,’ he said.

He added that he missed contributing to the family.

‘Coming from a working class background, I hate to let people down.

‘I hate to not do my job. When I see my wife going to work, my kids going to work – that gets me down because I can’t contribute to my family.

‘I’m a lot better now than I was last February. I was in a shocking state,’ he said.

The Black Sabbath singer said he is now determined to get himself healthy and start touring again.

‘This is the longest he’s ever been home. He really needs to get back out now,’ Sharon said.

Ozzy added: ‘I just can’t wait to get well and get on the road again that’s whats killing me. I need it you know- that’s my drug.

‘I ain’t going anywhere yet.’

His famous daughter Kelly was also interviewed, along with her brother Jack.

She said the disease was confusing because her father would appear healthy and able some days and totally immobile on other days.

‘Jack saw it first and then I saw it. It’s really strange how this works because there are some days where I will walk int he house and I’m like: “There’s absolutely nothing wrong with him.”

‘And then you come back the next day and nothing has happened but it’s like he can’t feel his arm and he can’t get off the couch. The hardest thing is watching someone you love suffer.

‘It’s become a bit of a role reversal for us. We have to all admit whats happening here so we can get over this. It took a while for everyone to be on the same page,’ she said.

ack, his son who has multiple sclerosis, said he knows not to ‘push’ his father to talk about his condition if he does not want to.

‘I mean, I understand when you have something you don’t wanna have… I don’t push it. If he wants to talk about it, we talk about it,’ he said.

Kelly said that the thing that has brought her father joy is returning to the studio to record new music. In the last year, he has made his first solo album in 10 years. It is called Ordinary Man.

‘The only thing I know when it comes to my dad is, what can I do to make him smile? And I know that going to the studio makes him happy.

‘I got him up and got him to the studio but that’s all I did. The rest was him,’ she said.

Ozzy said he plans to take the new album on tour when he is well enough to.

‘I want to see my people. It’s like – I miss them so much,’ he said of his fans.

Sharon, wiping away tears, added: ‘He’s going to get back out there and he’s going to do what he loves to do. I know it.’

Earlier this week, the rockstar was spotted walking with a cane.

The fall happened in the couple’s home last April and it prompted him to cancel his world tour.

Recalling it, he said in a sneak-peek from the interview that was teased on Monday: ”When I had the fall it was pitch black, I went to the bathroom and I fell. I just fell and landed like a slam on the floor and I remember lying there thinking, “Well, you’ve done it now,” really calm.’

He added that, ‘Sharon called an ambulance. After that it was all downhill,’ but when asked why he waited so long to share details about his health problems, he said it wasn’t a problem.

‘It wasn’t really a problem for a while. I never noticed any different. Sharon was saying, “Are you okay? You seem different.”

‘The pain is constant. The first six months I was in agony. I’d say, “Sharon – you’re not telling me the truth. I’m dying, aren’t I?” I thought I’d got some terminal illness because the improvement was so slow,’ he added.

‘I’m getting better, but after the surgery the nurses asked me on a scale of one to ten how much pain I was in, and I said, “55!” Six months of waking up and being unable to move is a miserable existence,’ Ozzy added.

Each of the three singers perform the entire self-titled debut album alone, adding their own stylings and nuances to all 12 of the songs. This brings a fresh and completely new take on the ground-breaking debut release, and all three versions are incredible in their own right. Also included are 3 live bonus tracks recorded from their US tour. Each of the discs has brand new original artwork from DUSAN MARCOVIC, and reflects the monstrous nature of this endeavor.
Bonus Tracks for Solo Versions:
Invaders From The Sky Live
When the Last Scream Fades Live
The Three Tremors Live
Included in the set is all new artwork and packaging, 3 separate discs (The Ripper version, The Tyrant Version, The Hell Destroyer Version), 3 live bonus tracks, and all new photographs. The order link can be found here at http://www.thethreetremors.com/site/store.html
The Hell Destroyer: “We each sang and recorded the entire album and so much great material got left on the cutting room floor because of how we pieced together the original release. I felt we had a really cool product that we could put together and I started working with Dave Garcia to mix them and assemble them. We contacted the artist and had him paint some incredible cover art to match the ferocity of the recordings.
Ripper: “Everyone each had their own amazing version of the album and I was hoping we would find a way to get them released and now here they are.”
The Tyrant: “This is a really cool, unique product that as a metal fan myself would want to have. The different approach we each took to the songs makes each version really fresh and interesting. Each guy really did a great job and it is definitely a trip the metal fan is going to enjoy.”
TOUR DATES:
10th Feb, The Bunkhouse, Swansea

11th Feb, Cobblestones, Bridgewater

12th Feb, Bannermans, Edinburgh

15th Feb, Corporation, Sheffield

16th Feb, HRH Metal, Birmingham
17th Feb, The Junction, Plymouth
Harry “The Tyrant” Conklin – “We had a great time on the last tour we did. We are changing up the set a little bit for this upcoming run and throwing some cool new surprises in. I think the people are going to love it.”
Tim “Ripper” Owens – “I’m really looking forward to hitting some of these States that we missed last time and bringing our show to places like Texas and Florida, that we have not played yet.”
Sean “The Hell Destroyer” Peck – “The album has been out for a while now, so people are more familiar with us as a band and the songs. We are following it up with the solo releases now so these new shows will be supporting that release. We will have some really radical new merchandise to go along with it, which I cannot wait to see. I love it that we are playing live again and bringing this one of a kind metal experience to new cities as we expand our reach and get back to pounding the anvil!
