2015 really is a catastrophic year for living legends.
Lemmy Kilminster, legendery frontman of Heavy Metal pioneers and pillars of the scene Motörhead has passed away at the age of 70.
According to The Guardian, he had been diagnosed with cancer on the 26th of December and was at home when the Valkyries took him. Lemmy was one of the most recogniseable rock and metal artists of all time. His career spanned five decades, his contribution to music and his influence by sheer weight of personality are things few artists can match these days.
Lemmy, you will be sorely missed but you can play Metal with Christopher Lee in Valhalla now!
Let’s remember this legend by playing his music LOUD!
