I found out that I have a mild form of Parkinson”the Prince of Darkness held a Reddit AMA session to engage fans and promote his latest release by answering questions from Reddit users. When asked about his plans post-Ordinary Man, the singer revealed that he was actually working on yet another record.
“I am [writing]another album because while I can’t tour, I can make music”, the Black Sabbath icon said. “What I learned from Ordinary Man, it got the juices flowing again. People say they write the best songs when they’re unhappy, and I was unhappy last year. I don’t have a favourite song from Ordinary Man because I was writing a new song every day.”
The Tour originally planned for this year, after being hospitalised with pneumonia and a subsequent fall in January, he had to tweak the date After rescheduling the concerts to take place between January 2020 and March 2020, yesterday he was forced to postpone due to needing more time to recover from the surgery he underwent. Following his fall, the metal rods in his body, which were inserted after a devastating quad bike accident in 2003, became dislodged, putting him back in hospital.
