Just heard the sad news today that Ozzy Osbourne, the iconic metal singer revealed the news exclusively on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts that the singer was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Ozzy revealed the news himself on the show.
Pretty sad about this ’cause Ozzy is one of the greatest metal singers of all time. I mean, the man was the one who helped start the metal genre… he helped invent the genre pretty much. I’ve been an Ozzy fan for years and always respected him. I heard everything he did with Black Sabbath and his solo career. I am trying to collect Sabbath and Ozzy solo albums for my Itunes, though.
Was Ozzy’s Parkinson’s diagnosis because of all the drugs and alcohol he put in his body over the years in his life? Probably. Years of alcohol and drugs can do something to ya later in life. I have noticed that Ozzy isn’t looking well nowadays.
Ozzy is a fighter, though. I respect the man even more. Even though Ozzy’s health is declining rapidly, he’s trying to stay alive for his family and for his music. Ozzy’s health is declining but he’s still doing the music thing. He can’t give that up no matter what ’cause he loves it. Ozzy’s got a new solo album coming out this year and I’m probably gonna get it. I’m loving the new songs so far.
Now that Ozzy has Parkinson’s, I wonder if Michael J. Fox gonna reach out to Ozzy about it? Michael probably already heard about it by now and I wonder if those two will one day team up to start doing stuff together for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. I hope they get together and they probably will… would be pretty cool.
Ozzy’s shaking may not be so bad right now but it’s probably gonna get worse in the future and he may have to get forced to retire from music completely pretty soon.
Prayers go out to him and his family. This really sucks and Parkinson’s a pretty serious disease. It’s no joke.
Hacking Hillary tried to attend the 9/11 Memorial event in NYC today but she left early ’cause I guess she wasn’t feeling well like usual. The video above is proof that she can barely stand up well. She had to get her handlers to help her get into the van.
CNN claims she left due to “overheating” but it’s probably a lie.
Maybe this is why he killed himself ’cause he didn’t want everybody finding out he was getting Parkinson’s. Now that I learned that he was at the early stages of Parkinson’s, I wish Michael J. Fox contacted him before Robin took his life. I’m pretty sure Michael would have taught Robin how to be strong and live with it.
I remember when Michael was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991, it took him a little while for him to go public with it. He went public with it in ’98. During that time, he got depressed for a while and started drinking heavily again. Then he got professional help. Michael is still alive and he’s trying his best to live his life to the fullest.
I understand that getting a disease sucks but people have to learn to live with it like Michael did. Too bad Robin couldn’t get the help that he needed. I’m pretty sure Michael would have been willing to help Robin and give him some advice.
Michael J. Fox is not letting his Parkinson’s disease getting in the way of something that he loves doing, and that is playing the guitar! Michael does his yearly Cure for Parkinsons benefit concerts in NYC, and here he is, the man himself, playing the guitar to the song, “Johnny B. Goode”. He may have played this song for the film, “Back to the Future”, but that was obviously acting. In this video, this is for real. He really does know how to play, “Johnny B. Goode”, and he even plays the guitar solo.
Whether you think this is a good performance or not, you still got to give Michael the kudos for the effort. You can see that he’s standing while playing guitar and that’s pretty ballsy when you got Parkinson’s. Even though it looks like he’s having a hard time standing, he played right through the whole song and he does look like he’s having a blast. It’s great to see Michael that he still plays guitar even though he is sick. Rock on, man!
