Ozzy Osbourne Comments On The Video Clip

Ozzy Osbourne has commented about the animated video clip of Hellraiser just after it was published. Saying that he feels great that they were able to honor Lemmy, Osbourne added that immortalizing him with their epic moments is awesome.

“I’m so glad we were able to honor my dear friend Lemmy with this duet and now the video,” Ozzy says.

“We immortalized him with a clip of the two of us being together, hanging out and getting into some trouble as we so often did.”

Back on October 25, Osbourne had taken his official social media channels to pay his tribute to his close friend Lemmy. In the post, Ozzy posted some of his moments with Lemmy at the Heavy Metal Holocaust rock festival at Port Vale Football Stadium in the United Kingdom.

Also, as some of you might remember, Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde had answered whether Lemmy joined Ozzy Osbourne during the recording process of No More Tears. According to him, Lemmy never sat with them in the studio.

“Na, the music was always done before,” he said.

“Ozzy just called Lemmy up after coming up with a vocal line of what he was going to do and we sent Lemmy the track. That way he could put the right words to what Ozzy was singing.

“Lemmy never sat with us when we were in the room working on the songs.

“He would hear the line and fit the syllables to Ozzy’s melody. He wasn’t in the room working on chord changes or the songs, he was just there to write lyrics.”
