Ozzy Osbourne has the best house of any rockstar in Los Angeles.

The ageing rocker was one of a series interviewed for documentary film 'Lemmy' - about the titular Motorhead frontman - and the film's directors said Ozzy's house, which he lives in with his wife and manager Sharon, was hands down the best.

Co-director Greg Olliver told BANG Showbiz: "Ozzy had the nicest house, no doubt about it. He had the red phantom parked out front, Sharon had just come home in a stretched limo from shopping and there were bags and piles of new clothes and shoes all over the foyer, with a marble table.

"We were then led down to Ozzy's recording studio, which is at the bottom of the house, and it had the most beautiful wood for the stairs, and at the bottom, there's these two black leather doors with black crosses sewn in.

"You could just tell, some people find a way to do it right in the world of music."

He added: "Lemmy's apartment is kind of like the exact opposite of Ozzy's. It's like a cave. Like Nosferatu's coffin. He lives in a one bedroom apartment, that he's been in so long, like 15 years, that there's half the square footage now, because he's filled it with so much stuff - piles of books, magazines, war relics, guitars, T-shirts, road cases, amps, boots everywhere.

The film's co-director, Wes Orshoski, said Ozzy's living circumstances were a world away from the situation of their film's subject.

"It looks like you're in an army navy store, he has wardrobe racks in his living room, full of military jackets. He's kind of like a college kid that moved into an apartment and never left."

'Lemmy' is released in UK cinemas from December 3 and will be out on DVD from January 24th.
