Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath frontman, spoke to Metal Hammer about his friendship with former Motörhead vocalist and bassist Lemmy Kilmister.
“I miss having him around, he was a nice guy,” Ozzy said. “I called him the day he died. I knew he was dying. He didn’t even know it was me. I had to say to him, ‘It’s Ozzy, Lem.’ I said, ‘Lemmy, please stay put, I’m coming.’
“I told Sharon, ‘Fuck you, get in the car, let’s go to his apartment.’ And as we were leaving, she came to me and said, ‘Don’t worry, he’s gone.’ It sank me. It hit me too hard, I will not pretend not to. ”
Lemmy was already facing health problems and died in December 2015.
