  JACK OSBOURNE BATTLING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
14th June 2012

jack osbourne



Jack Osbourne, son of Black Sabbath lead vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, has revealed that he has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The devastating news comes only weeks after Jack and his fiancee, Lisa Stelly, welcomed a baby girl named Pearl into the world.

In an interview with People magazine, Jack described his initial reaction to the difficult news: "I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, 'Why now? I've got a family and that's what's supposed to be the most important thing."

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the communication between the brain and the spinal cord, and can be extremely debilitating, depending on its severity. It can cause loss of muscle control and balance, among other symptoms.

In a separate interview with Hello! magazine, Jack added: "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."

A devastated Ozzy Osbourne told Hello! that the news of Jack's condition has left him both angered and confused. "If it was me, you'd think: 'Ozzy had a reputation and it caught up with him', but Jack is such a good guy."

Jack's mother, Sharon Osbourne, revealed to Hello! that she was riddled with guilt upon learning of Jack's disease. "I keep thinking, 'What did I do wrong? What did I eat or drink when I was pregnant?' I feel like it's somehow my fault."

The family hopes that Jack can battle multiple sclerosis with drug treatments and lifestyle changes. His fiancee Lisa explains: "Jack will have to change his life for the better – get healthier, not get stressed – so I feel like this could almost be a blessing in disguise."

Jack's sister Kelly took to Twitter earlier today to ask her fans to be there for sibling. "Please support my brother @mrjacko in not only his bravery but honesty!" she wrote. "i love you so much jack & I'm so proud of you!"

MetalTalk.net's thoughts are with Jack Osbourne and the entire Osbourne family.


WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
