(24 December 1945 – 28 December 2015) –#RIPLemmy
Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has died.
Ian Fraser Kilmister was born on Christmas Eve, a few days after celebrating his 70th birthday the legend who is known to us all as “Lemmy” of Motorhead passed away on December 28, 2015. For all those who have seen Motorhead in concert, Lemmy was iconic to everyone in music. As the tributes go out today, we at UnRated Magazine say our prayers to Lemmy. May you Rock the heavens for Eternity. You lived life as a Rockstar, a “True Rockstar.” Now you will be remembered with all our other rock and roll heroes. RIP Peace Lemmy.
Just a little about Lemmy, he was born as Ian Fraser Kilmister on December 24, 1945 in Staffordshire, England, post -World War II child. Lemmy many musical careers included being a roadie for Jimi Hendrix Experience, and a member of the band (vocals, bass) Hawkwind, before becoming the front-man and bass player of one of the most known bands in the world, Motorhead. His graspy voice brought world fame on the record charts with the song, “Ace of Spades.”
Lemmy and Motorhead influenced majority of the heavy metal and thrash bands which include Metallica, Megadeth, and so many others. He guzzled Jack Daniels just like Frank Sinatra, a staple of life for the musician.
Motorhead lost two members in 2015, earlier last month on November 11, 2015, Phil Taylor passed away.
“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.
Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.
HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT.
Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister
Born to lose, lived to win.
