Ozzy Osbourne recently recalled speaking with MOTÖRHEAD’s Lemmy Killmister on the morning the iconic frontman passed away.

Speaking with Classic Rock for the magazine’s 300th issue, Ozzy discussed the last time he spoke with his close friend.

“He was a good man, Lemmy was,” Ozzy said. “All the guys from MOTÖRHEAD have gone now, from the original band. It’s hard to lose anyone you love. I was talking to Lemmy on the morning that he died, but I couldn’t understand what he was talking about. I wanted to talk to someone else who was there, but they kept giving the phone to Lemmy.”

Lemmy, who celebrated his 70th birthday on December 24, 2015, discovered only two days later that he had an aggressive form of cancer. He died two days later, on December 28, 2015.

Ozzy Osbourne released the 30th anniversary edition of his “No More Tears” album last year, which included a special version of the song “Hellraiser” which featured Lemmy on vocals.
