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.
Please feel free to post your condolences, well wishes and memories on our official tribute page:
C'est par ce communiqué officiel que le monde a appris la terrible nouvelle, le dieu du rock est mort aujourd'hui d'un cancer foudroyant.
Lemmy va pouvoir se reposer après une vie bien chargée et je me souviendrai toute ma vie de l'état de mes tympans après tes concerts mais aussi de la trique que j'ai eu pendant.
RIP Ian Fraser Lemmy Kilmister, tu es un héros du rock'n'roll.
