As some of those might remember, Lemmy Kilmister, the bandleader of the Motorhead, has passed away on December 28, 2015, just four days after his birthday. It was reported at the time that there were three reasons for his passing, prostate cancer, cardiac arrhythmia, and congestive heart failure.
However, in a recent interview with BBC Radio, Ozzy Osbourne was asked if he reveals his rock god. He revealed some shocking moments he lived with Lemmy and admitted that he is his rock god.
Ozzy Osbourne Opts Lemmy As His ‘Rock God’
Revealing his rock god, Ozzy Osbourne mourned one of the greatest guitarists and stated that his rock god is late Motorhead guitarist Lemmy.
“My rock god is Lemmy Kilmister,” Ozzy opted. “Lemmy was a guy – he shot from the hip every time. ‘That sucks,’ or, ‘I like that.’
“I’m good at starting lyrics, but I can’t finish them. And he’d go – he’d write a bunch of lyrics for my songs – ‘Mama, I’m Coming Home.’
Ozzy Reveals Shocking Lemmy Moment
And then, Ozzy Osbourne continued by recalling the shocking Lemmy Kilmister moment he ever lived on his entire life. He revealed the thing that Lemmy finished surprisingly in four hours, although he thought it’s gonna be a week.
“So, I’d give him a tape, and I had this book on World War II,” Ozzy said. “I haven’t read it and I told him, ‘Tell me what you think. And I have a bunch of these lyrics – whenever you can…’ I’m thinking, it’s gonna be a week.
“And he says, ‘Come back in about four hours.’ So I got back, and he goes, ‘What do you think about these?’ And I go, ‘Oh, great.’ He then goes, ‘What about these?’ I go, ‘Oh, you got two…?’
“He goes, ‘No, I got another one – three.’ I go, ‘You had written three sets of lyrics?!’ He said, ‘Yeah, and that book was crap!’ I said, ‘What book?’ He says, ‘The book you gave me.’
“He was a speed-reader! He could read really fast. He was amazing! You look at people like Lemmy and you think, ‘Oh, he’s a yob [a rude, noisy, and aggressive young person].’ But he was very well-educated.”
