“I hope everyone enjoys the song,” says Ozzy. “This is just a small way to honor my friend Lemmy. Sharon and I talk a lot about how much we miss him.”
Physical and digital versions of the 30th anniversary edition of No More Tears arrive this Friday (September 17) – until then, listen to Hellraiser below:
In his White Line Fever autobiography (via Ultimate Classic Rock), Lemmy said of writing with Ozzy: “That was one of the easiest gigs I ever had. Sharon rang me up and said, ‘I’ll give you X amount of money to write some songs for Ozzy’, and I said, ‘Alright – you got a pen?’ I wrote six or seven sets of words, and he ended up using four of them.
“I made more money out of writing those four songs than I made out of 15 years of Motörhead – ludicrous, isn’t it?”
