British heavy metal band, Motörhead’s frontman, Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, died Monday after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer on Saturday, two days after his 70th birthday.
Lemmy was a truly a legend that managed to keep his fan base and relevance for six decades and even though he had his recent struggles with his health, he could still almost seem invincible since all his years of life on the road, partying, drinking, and smoking never took him under.
He received a lot of love and respect from his friends, family, and fans and we can tell that he will surely be missed. So much so that Motörhead drummer, Mikkey Dee, has revealed that Motorhead is over.
“Lemmy was Motörhead,” says Dee to Sweden’s Expressen. “We won’t be doing any more tours or anything. And there won’t be any more records. But the brand survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone.”
