RIP Lemmy

Recommended Posts

Really sad news but amazing he made it to 70. Big regret I never got to see Motorhead live for one reason or another but I did get to meet him in the early 90s. The man has left a massive legacy.

I love this clip:

The best at what he did, and not many do it Lemmy's way...
An utter legend and rock god.
I'm not sure he'll be resting, but I hope he's at peace.
Goodbye Lemmy - missed already and will be for a very long time.

Sad - first thing I heard when I turned the radio on just now :(

Another legend gone - there won't be another Lemmy!

Although it's never been my kind of music the man was an icon, and whenever I heard him speak on radio or TV my admiration for him grew.

A rare gem of an authentic person in a world of grey mediocrity - he'll be missed.

Can't help but thinking that his end must have been quick and somehow suited him - even in death he wasn't a shrinking wallflower.

The world will be just a little bit blander and boring without him.

Very saddened to hear this news. :(

Saw Motorhead only the once at Guildford about 15 years ago and they were absolutely fantastic!

There's something very iconic about Rickenbackers anyway, but even more so when Lemmy played his.

If/when they come to make the film of his life, they'll be hard pushed to find an actor who can do him justice..

RIP Lemmy.

A larger than life character indeed, no - one can fill his shoes.

I was discussing the other day that I bought Silver Machine when it came out in the '70's. What a record for the time

The world is a poorer place for his passing

RIP Lemmy. The afterlife has just got a lot louder!

The first time I saw Motorhead was on The Young Ones episode 'Bambi' in 1984, performing Ace of Spades and loved it! Saw them live (finally!) in 1998 and my ears were ringing for two days afterwards.

This daft gag he told in Lemmy: The Movie always cracked me up.

Bad news.

A bit like Keith Richards, I had almost got to the point of thinking he was immortal. Sadly not.

Rotten news, but not unexpected. I`ve a feeling Ace Of Spades might make it`s way into band practice tonight in his honour.

[color=#141823][font=Helvetica]a great quote from him referring to Motorhead: [/font][/color]
[color=#141823][font=Helvetica]"Very basic music - loud, fast, city, raucous, arrogant, paranoid, speed-freak rock n roll. It will be so loud that if we move in next door to you, your lawn will die".[/font][/color]
