Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister (1945-2015)

Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, the lead singer and only constant member of heavy metal British band Motörhead has died aged 70.   His death comes only two days after he learned he had cancer, on Boxing Day.  The band was getting ready to go on tour to promote their 23rd album, but the band is widely expected to disband after their frontman’s tragic death.

The tributes quickly poured in from the rock world.  Ozzy Osbourne tweeted, “Lost one of my best friends, Lemmy, today.  He will be sadly missed.  He was a warrior and a legend.  I will see you on the other side.”  Motörhead asked their fans to “play Lemmy’s music LOUD” and “have a drink or two” in tribute to the legendary rock star.
