MOTÖRHEAD mainman Lemmy died earlier today at the age of 70, it has been confirmed.

The surviving members of MOTÖRHEAD said in a statement: "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. HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT.

Such sad news. Somehow I always thought he was immortal.

Another legend has left us, let us hope he's having a great time with Ronnie James Dio, Dimebag, the boys in The Ramones and all the others!

So sad. At least he died doing what he loved.

I'm organizing my playlist in a tribute to all of his greatest music, hopefully I'll be able to share it soon.

Sincerely,
Me

Here it is. It's a bit on the raw side, so I'll mix up the tracks and refine it in the next few hours

R.I.P. Lemmy

There's a Sex Pistols cover for "God save the queen" performed by Motorhead, with a great video too.

That was how I knew motorhead in the late 2000, when I was seventeen.

Great sound, inimitable voice.

Play it loud.

RIP

Lemmy was so strong, almost 20 days ago he was still performing in europe with Motörhead like nothing was happening to him. He is a legend. 

 

Thanks for sharing thoughts, music, playlists guys! Keep on Rockin'!

@driveflanger Agree. There was also a good documentary about him. Can't think of the name at the moment.

 

@xenon82 Here is a good addition for the Motorhead playlist, Sam Gopal (with Lemmy):
