Ozzy Osbourne revealed that he is battling Parkinson’s disease in an interview with Good Morning America.

Osbourne received the diagnosis last February after a string of health setbacks, including a staph infection. He’s treating the disease with medication. Ozzy said that he felt guilty holding back the diagnosis from his fans. “I found out I have a mild form of … what is it?” the singer asked his wife, Sharon, in the interview. “PRKN 2, which is a form of Parkinson’s,” she said. “There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s. It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. It’s like you have a good day, a good day and then a really bad day.”

Ozzy Osbourne has provided fans a date for his long anticipated album titled Ordinary Man.

The album will be released on February 21, 2020 on Epic Records.

The album will include collaborations with Elton John, Post Malone and Slash. “Slash is a dear friend of mine, as is Elton. When I was writing ‘Ordinary Man,’ it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’ We asked and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and play piano on the song.”

The two songs released so far, "Under the Graveyard" and "Straight to Hell" feature Slash on guitar.

Hall of Fame drummer and lyricist Neil Peart succumbs to brain cancer.

Neil Peart, drummer and lyricist for RUSH, died Tuesday, January 7th, in Santa Monica, California, at age 67, according to Elliot Mintz, a family spokesperson. The cause was brain cancer, which Peart had been quietly battling for three-and-a-half years. 

Styx's Lawrence Gowan paid tribute to Neil Peart. Gowan performed during the band's concert in Arizona just hours after hearing news of Peart's death was made public.

Sitting solo at his keyboard, Gowan sang one verse and one chorus of Rush's 1981 classic "Limelight" amid erupting cheers of recognition from the audience. The singer ended the 90-second tribute by telling the audience, "Thank you to one of the greatest drummers and certainly one of the all-time greatest lyricists, Neil Peart."
