Rock icon Ozzy Osbourne is in awe of British singer SIR Elton John because he lends so much of his time to his friends and under-privileged people the world over.

The former Black Sabbath frontman is indebted to the CANDLE IN THE WIND singer for all the support he gave wife SHARON during her battle with potentially lethal colon cancer - and they have become firm friends.

He says, "Elton and Sharon are great friends. I'm great friends with him too but he was brilliant with Sharon. They are on the phone all the time. He's amazing, he never stops - he's either performing or raising money for charity.

"He does so much, I don't know how he does it. I can't say enough good things about him."
