Rocker Ozzy Osbourne, Suffering from Spinal Damage and Parkinson’s, Cancels Upcoming UK, European Tour


Ozzy Osbourne is suffering. He’s had to cancel his next UK and European tour, he says, because of spinal injuries — despite painful surgeries. Ozzy was also diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2003 and after twenty years it’s obviously catching up with him. “My singing voice is fine,” he reports. He can make records. His most recent is nominated for a Grammy Award this weekend.

The main thing, after 50 years of performing, is that he takes care of himself. At 74 years old, he’s allowed to slow down!
