Ozzy Osbourne has released the following statement to U.K.'s Classic Rock magazine regarding the passing of legendary guitarist Gary Moore:
"I knew Gary Moore for what seemed like forever. We'd run into each other many times over the years and we were always able to pick up right where we left off.
"I had the honor of recording with Gary on his 'After The War' album on the track 'Led Clones' which was great fun.
"To say that his death is a tragic loss doesn't seem to give it the justice it deserves. We've lost a phenomenal musician and a great friend.
"Rest in peace, Gary."
