Founder of Motorhead victim dies of cancer

Lemmy had celebrated 70 years on Christmas Eve.

Founding member and bassist of Motorhead in the 70, the hoarse voice, sideburns and a distinctive sound made him a figure of reference in the world of heavy metal.

Musician's career dates back to the years 60 and 70, the time of its passage through the British group "space rock", Hawkwind.


In 1975, Lemmy would eventually found the Motorhead and during the years that followed produced some of the most iconic albums of his career. Albums as "Overkill"; "Bomber" and "Ace of Spades" fired the group to the top of the sales charts in the United Kingdom. Finally, in 1981, the Motorhead would eventually reach number one with the album "No Sleep 'til Hammersmith".

In addition to music, Lemmy became known for excesses related to drugs and alcohol. Lived in Los Angeles in the United States and was an avid collector of objects and clothing.

Lemmy's death occurred a few weeks after the death of the Group's original drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor, to 61 years of age.

Here's several tributes:

Lost one of my best friends, Lemmy, today. He will be sadly missed. He was a warrior and a legend. I will see you on the other side.
