Black Sabbath’s iconic frontman Ozzy Osbourne saddened after learning the death of his long-time friend, Mitch Slater, and shared his feelings to the fans by sharing a new post on his official Instagram account.

Mitch was a concert promotion pioneer that worked with lots of groups. About a week ago, he passed away due to the extended illness at the age of 59 and saddened the music community.

Ozzy stated that he is heartbroken about the death of Mitch and showed how an important person he was to the Prince Of Darkness. Also, he sent his condolences to Mitch’s family and prayed for his soul.

To pay his tribute and mourn his death, Ozzy shared an old photo with him at least fifteen years ago while they were holding the search results of ‘Ozzyfest 2000.’  Mitch was next to Ozzy and he was smiling towards the camera.

Here is what Ozzy Osbourne said:
