A legend, an Icon...has passed.
'Everything louder than everything else!'
"We want to be the band that if we moved in next door to you, your lawn would die"

A life well lived.

Wurzel and Philthy are saving him a barstool and that bar damn well better be stocked.

Raise a glass of Jack, fire up a heater...AND PLAY IT LOUD!!!!!!!!
God Bless you sir for all you were! Rock and Roll is a lesser thing without your presence.

The Lemmy Biography is interesting for sure....and while I was never much of a fan, by all accounts he was a cool guy and interesting persona.

Spose this is another I should have added to my "wish I would have seen live" file along with Ray Charles and Johnny Cash.

My own fave Lemmy story...

Years ago, Motorhead was doing a signing at Moby Disc on Ventura...back when it was up closer to the world famous car wash. They trotted out the Killed by Death electric chair and Lemmy sat, holding court...pack of smokes and industrial strength size bottle of Jack laid out before him. My friend Joe...thought he was being clever, presenting an Ace of Spades playing card for Lemmy to scribble on. Well...he looked up. Sized up the card, sized up my friend, took a big pull of JD and belched on my friend's hand. Never said a word.

A genuine character who stayed true to himself to the end. The world is much less colorful with his loss.

Hellraiser, rogue, father - Lemmy remembered

Back in 2010, Lemmy theorised proudly; ?When Mot?rhead leaves, there will be a hole there that just can?t be filled. That?s fine with me; it means I?ve achieved what I set out to do ? which was to make an unforgettable rock?n?roll band.?

Kirk Hammett Wrote A Letter Paying His Respects To Lemmy
http://uproxx.com/music/kirk-hammett-wrote-a-letter-paying-his-respects-to-lemmy/


Back in 1979 when I was 16 years old, I heard Overkill for the first time. I thought it was the fastest thing I’d ever heard, and I declared to all my friends that Mot?rhead were the fastest band in the land.

When I had first seen pictures of what these guys looked like, I noticed a certain authenticity about them. I imagined they lived the way they looked and looked the way they lived.

And I remember very distinctly having a realization that moment — I realized that it was OK to be an outsider and that it was OK to not feel like I had to conform to anything that I objected to in my teenage life because clearly the Mot?rhead guys in this picture looked like they didn’t conform to anything at all and boy it sure looked and sounded like they were enjoying themselves as a result.

Hellraiser Star Doug Bradley Pays Tribute to Lemmy Kilmister
http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/144904/hellraiser-star-doug-bradley-pays-tribute-to-lemmy-kilmister/


Here’s what Bradley posted on his Facebook page in tribute to Lemmy…

Sad to hear of Lemmy’s passing.

“Icon” is a word perhaps thrown around too easily-Lemmy fits it like a glove. I said that as someone who was not much of a fan of Mot?rhead, though I stepped aboard his Silver Machine with great pleasure 40 years and more ago.

Then, of course, came the day I spent shooting the “Hellraiser” video with him in an abandoned theatre in downtown LA. It was a memorable day in many ways, not least for the time spent sitting across a card table from him, waiting to shoot the scene. I sipped water while he drank whiskey at an alarming rate, we swapped memories of The Goons and Spike Milligan and laughed a lot together. In spite of the liquor and the god-knows-what-else, a gentle, charming, funny man.

Peace and Pain,

Doug

Some people had issues with his love of war stuff particularly from the "bad guys."

"The bad guys always have the best stuff.."

Yeah, they do. I like WWII stuff. He collected it, but didn't believe in the philosophy over it.

And he just loved looking cool and mean, but seems to have been such a nice guy to everyone. :punk:

In a Final Interview, Lemmy Says He ‘Could Haunt’ Us


Read More: In a Final Interview, Lemmy Says He 'Could Haunt' Us | http://ultimateclassicrock.com/lemmy-motorhead-ghost/?trackback=tsmclip


Maybe his absence won’t be for that long, after all.
Lemmy Kilmister, speaking to a German TV station in one of his last interviews, acknowledged that he had lived a busy, lucky life. Asked if he intended to continue performing forever, however, he said: “What, after death? No! I’ll have to stop then – I think. But you never know, I could haunt somewhere, mess up somebody else’s gig.”
Lemmy died on Dec. 28, just two days after being diagnosed with a particularly aggressive form of cancer. Tumors had been found in the head and neck area, not long after the long-time Motorhead frontman’s gala 70th birthday celebration.
By the way, Lemmy laughingly suggested that he might crash a concert by the pop band Tears for Fears in the afterlife. However, based on confirmed dates posted to the group’s web site, the earliest that spectral presence could happen is Feb. 20. In the meantime, there’s also been some immediate speculation on what it would be like to see Lemmy return as a ghost to the Rainbow, his favorite bar in West Hollywood.
Elsewhere in his talk with a German interviewer, Lemmy ruminated on outliving so many of his peers, despite a notoriously debauched existence: “I don’t really recommend the lifestyle because most people die of it,” he said. “A lot of my friends are dead who shouldn’t be. But if it’s the luck of the draw. It’s random. You can’t plan your life. It doesn’t work.”
