Lemmy Passes Away from Cancer


From the Official Motorhead website:  


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.

From the Editor of FW:  Yesterday I took out and used my Motorhead messenger bag for the first time in a couple of years in honor of Lemmy’s birthday.  When I put in down at the end of the day, my cat, who had seen it many times before, made a beeline for it and slept leaning against it all night.  It’s like somehow she knew…

Feetie sensing Lemmy's death

Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.
