NEW YORK (AP) — Heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne says that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, a nervous system disorder that affects movement.

The 71-year-old Grammy winner and former vocalist for Black Sabbath made the announcement during an interview on "Good Morning America."

The diagnosis came after a fall last year that led him to cancel several tour dates.

Osbourne says that he really wants to get well enough to start performing again.
