RIP Lemmy

Lemmy – Ian Kilmister – died yesterday. Although it was an aggressive cancer that got him in the end, he’d been unwell for a while. But this is a man who lived the rock’n’roll lifestyle and was wedded to the music.

He sang on Hawkwind’s mighty “Silver Machine”, but left soon after and formed Motorhead. They were one of the few metal bands totally respected by the punks. And they just kept going!

I never listened to their music all that much – except for that one song. “Ace of Spades” of course. One of the greatest metal/ rock’n’roll songs of all time.

 

Lemmy, we salute you!
