The late musician, Lemmy Kilmister, mentioned that his favorite Ozzy Osbourne album was “No surprise.”

Known to many heavy metal band fans, Ozzy Osbourne and Lemmy Kilmister shared a friendship that spanned over decades. Osbourne described him as, “He was a good man, Lemmy was.” He also noted that his long-time friendship with Kilmister was marked by brutal honesty, both in work and life. The two had frank discussions about Osbourne’s lengthy career, too. Osbourne recalled:

“He’d go, ‘That record you just made was fucking shit’ or ‘I really like that one.'”

As per Osbourne, Kilmister’s favorite record was “No More Tears” and he’d always reply saying, “yeah, because you wrote on it, you cunt!” That friendship played out professionally on 1991’s No More Tears, which saw Kilmister collaborating on four tracks – including “Mama, I’m Coming Home,” Osbourne’s only Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Osbourne recalled the time he saw Kilmister:

“I went down to South America and he was there on tour, but he was so fucked he couldn’t speak to anyone.

“He was sitting at the front, skinny as a rake. He was riddled with cancer at the end, but mind you, he turned round to me and said ‘I’m probably going to die, I suppose. Never thought I’d make 70, so I did good.'”

The rockstar recalled Kilmister’s exact words were:

“I could have lived a lot longer and taken care of myself, but I lived my life the way I want to live and I ain’t got no regrets. Fair enough!”
