R.I.P. Lemmy

Lemmy Kilimister

Motörhead’s Lemmy passed away last night at the age of 70. Horns up & heads down. He’d only just celebrated his birthday. I guess that’s the problem with rock ‘n’ roll. It can raise you up to the ecstatic heights and it can also break your heart.

Motörhead posted this official statement:

There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.
We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness, there aren’t words.
We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please…play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD.
Have a drink or few.
Share stories.
Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.
Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister
1945 -2015
Born to lose, lived to win.

Rest in peace to one of the greatest rockstars of all time, the Godfather of Metal himself. Long live rock ‘n’ roll, thank you, Lemmy.
