When news of Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister's sudden passing first hit it sent a shock wave through the music industry. The Motorhead front man clearly has made a solid impact on all genre's of music and in the hours that have followed photos of Lemmy have popped up showing that he was friends not only with fellow metalheads, but also r&b and freestyle artists alike.

Motorhead issued a statement announcing Lemmy's passing yesterday that reads,

"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 its 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."
