Legendary frontman of Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, mourned the death of his former drummer Lee Kerslake, who died yesterday at the age of 73 due to cancer, by sharing a new post on his official Twitter account.
Back in 1980 after Ozzy was kicked from Black Sabbath, he met with Lee in an elevator at the hotel in Australia, and they formed Blizzard Of Ozz together. However, Lee left the band after a year due to the health problems of his mother.
Even though he left the band after a year, he took part in the two albums of Ozzy Osbourne, Diary Of A Madman and Blizzard Of Ozz. However, Ozzy didn’t give credit to Lee in the Diary Of A Madman album.
In the tweet, Ozzy admitted that he didn’t see Lee for over thirty-nine years, but he wanted to remember his legacy. Ozzy stated that he lives forever on the records of Diary Of A Madman and Blizzard Of Ozz.
In this way, Ozzy also ended the speculations by giving credit to Lee in these albums and paid his tribute to his late drummer. Also, he prayed for his soul and showed his respect to Lee.
Here is what Ozzy Osbourne said:
“It’s been 39 years since I’ve seen Lee but he lives forever on the records he played on for me, Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman. Lee Kerslake. Rest in peace.”
