Posted by AP on 29/12/15

Legendary Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister passed away yesterday, aged 70. On top of battling various other health problems, Lemmy apparently learned on December 26th that he was suffering from a very aggressive form of cancer, which brought about his passing just two days later. His band has released the following 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 it’s 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.
Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister
1945 -2015
Born to lose, lived to win.
