Ozzy Forced To Pull Out Of European Dates, Cottonmouth To Blame

The Prince Of Darkness has some good news and some bad news for fans. The bad news is that he's been forced to cancel his European tour. The good news is that doctors have confirmed that he does NOT have Parkinson's Disease. For those that have seen an episode of The Osbournes, it should come as no surprise that the singer has been undergoing tests over the last three weeks to find the cause of his involuntary shaking. The son of the devil, who is also very in touch with his feelings said, "I was at a point where it felt as if this problem was practically destroying my life along with my self-esteem."

"I was no longer comfortable being around people, which, as you can imagine, is not the best trait for a performer, " he added. "I feel like I keep letting you all down, which breaks my heart... but you have my word that I will be over in the new year to complete my European tour." That written statement comes after a team of linguistic specialists spent three days, 14 packs of cigarettes, and 5 cases of Red Bull deciphering an audio tape of Ozzy's comments.

The official cause of the tour cancelation is dry mouth. NME reports that Ozzy's doctor, Dr. Allan H Ropper, issued a statement that while Ozzy does not have Parkinson's, a side effect the medication he is taking for the tremors is dry mouth, which greatly impairs the voice. The doctor's note also excludes Ozzy from gym class and 4th period algebra.

The cancelled European dates stretch from October 22 in Dublin to December 5 in Munich. Ozzy is expected to make up those dates next year.
