Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne was interviewed by Metal Hammer, and shared an untold story about him and Lemmy Kilmister.

Ozzy Osbourne also commented about recent deaths of famous rock icons like David Bowie, Chris Cornell AND Chester Bennington.

Here Ozzy’s statement:

“They’ve been dropping in fours and fives, when it used to be once in a blue moon, but I’m still here. Lemmy died a while ago.

Before he died, he said to me, ‘Well, I could have had 10 more years if I did all the proper things, but I did things my way..’ He knew what he was doing. It’s sad and I miss him being around.

“I said to my wife the other day, ‘Why have I survived?’ And she said, ‘Don’t complain!’ If it wasn’t for Sharon, I would’ve been gone a long time ago. She used to bollock me all the time about it. I did have a conscience and I realised, ‘Do I really want to be remembered as a sad junkie and an alcoholic nutcase?’

But if you’d said to me years ago, ‘How long do you think you’ll last?’ I would’ve said, ‘I’ll be dead by 40!’ Luck has shadowed me all the way.

If you’d read a new story that said ‘Ozzy Osbourne has been found dead in his hotel room’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, really?’ You’d say, ‘Well, obviously!’”
