Another great figure of british rock is gone.
How we voyaged in space with Lemmy (and Dave Brock and co) 40-odd years ago ...

Any Scimitar link is tenuous - unless you have a silver one ;)

I should mention at the same time the greatest bassist of all time Chris Squire who died also this year.

Thanks lads, you will be missed but the music goes on.

Yes, another great rocker is gone.

Never saw Motorhead but I did see Hawkwind back in the Seventies, while Lemmy was still in the line-up. Good times!

Never saw Lemmy live but always enjoyed his interviews and laconic style. I was sad to hear of his passing. Here he is in his own words (warning, some sweary!) Lemmy

Saw Chris Squire in several of the iterations of Yes through the years and agree he was a fantastic bassist, another sad loss. :(

At it's height Motorhead was a bit too early for me. Not sure quite what to expect me and a friend went to see Lemmy play at a small venue in Glasgow about 8 years ago. What the gig lacked in size it made up for in noise and was brilliant - when my mate started his Volvo T5 he asked me if the engine had fired - the rev counter said so but neither of us could hear anything!

Huge stage presence, sad to hear another great is gone.

Phil Taylor only died 6 weeks ago - and John Bradbury (Specials drummer) also died today - a bad day for the music industry :-(
