Ozzy Osbourne fears he might be the next music star to die in a year that has already seen the deaths of David Bowie, Prince and Glenn Frey.
Ozzy is haunted by the memory of touring South America with late Motorhead rocker Lemmy Kilmister last summer (15), when the fellow Brit told the Black Sabbath frontman they would both be dead "soon".
Lemmy died in December (15).

He says, 'Aye, I lived my life the way I wanted to live it. Who wants to live to 99 miserable?' That was Lemmy. He was a great friend of mine."
