OZZY OSBOURNE’S SON JACK DIAGNOSED WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

OZZY OSBOURNE’S SON JACK DIAGNOSED WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

Support: New father Jack Osbourne, son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne announced that he has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis just a few weeks after the birth of his daughter Pearl. Jack said in a magazine interview, “The timing was so bad. I’d just had a baby, work was going great … I kept thinking, ‘Why now?'” Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. Jack elaborated in the interview that he had lost most of the vision in his right eye which led him to seek treatment. The diagnosis has his parents questioning how this could happen, with his mother  Sharon wondering if she did something wrong while she was pregnant. Jack is optimistic however and said of his diagnosis: “While I was waiting for the final results, I got really, really angry. Then I got really sad for about two days, and after that I realized being angry and upset is not going to do anything at this point, if anything it’s only going to make it worse. Adapt and overcome’ is my new motto.” Jack will appear on The Talk co-hosted by his mother Sharon to discuss everything this Wednesday. His mother said yesterday on the show that he is doing well and is grateful for all the well wishes. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jack and his family.       Support: Have you seen these yet?

BILL WARD FIRED BY SHARON OSBOURNE? – PART 2

BILL WARD FIRED BY SHARON OSBOURNE? – PART 2

Support:   Sharon Osbourne responded last night regarding her firing  Bill Ward from Black Sabbath. Sharon  tweeted: “I am not in any position to hire or fire anyone in Black Sabbath. I don’t manage the band, I manage my husband.” Bill Ward’s son Aron also released a statement regarding all of the talk about his father’s position on the contract negotiations and his feelings toward some of the negative press: “The press is spinning this shitstorm to read as if my dad has quit. This is not true. The guys know that. That’s why they said the door is ALWAYS open. “My dad hasn’t ‘declined’ playing with BLACK SABBATH or ‘threatened’ to pull out of this reunion. As he stated, his bags are packed and he’s ready to go. He says it loud and clear, he definitely wants to play on the album and he definitely wants to tour. I know he’s been committed to this project from the beginning all the way to the point everyone else flew off to the U.K. When I saw him over the summer, he had this little CD case with him that had all the rehearsals and song ideas. Each CD was Sharpie scrawled with rough titles and ideas they had been working on. “About a month ago, my dad called me to let me know that Tony [Iommi, guitar] had been diagnosed with cancer. He said they were all flying over in the next couple of weeks to continue recording the album in the U.K. and begin rehearsals for the summer tours. He’d been rehearsing more than I’ve ever known him to....
