Tonight we can sadly confirm that MOTORHEAD’s Lemmy Kilmister has passed away. Lemmy was a true rock icon and will continue to live on through his incredible music. The death of the icon came from journalist Eddie Trunk. He had learnt of his cancer on the 27th December, and sadly passed today. He was only 70.

Our thoughts go out to Lemmy’s family and friends.

The band have 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.
