In case you missed it, Ian Fraser Kilmister – better known as Lemmy – the founder and front man of the iconic band Motorhead, passed away last night at the age of 70.
Lemmy, who just celebrated his 70th birthday on Christmas Eve, learned two days later that he had an aggressive form of cancer. He died last night at his home in Los Angeles.
A statement issued by the surviving members of Motorhead read, “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 (sic) 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 its way down the street, with his family.”
