Da tempo malato, si è spento a 70 anni Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister, leader dei Motörhead e indiscussa icona del rock. Negli ultimi anni parecchi tour della band erano stati interrotti proprio a causa dei problemi di salute di Lemmy. Qui di seguito il messaggio diffuso dalla pagina Facebook ufficiale dei Motörhead:
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.
Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.
HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT.
Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister
Born to lose, lived to win.
