Motörhead's Lemmy Kilmister passes away at 70


Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister died at the age of 70, following a short battle with cancer.

He passed away just days after being diagnosed with an extremely aggressive cancer on Boxing Day.

The band said in a 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. HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT. Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister. 1945 -2015. Born to lose, lived to win."
