If you’ve heard and need a reminder or haven’t and want to celebrate Lemmy on what would have been his 72nd birthday (a.k.a. Christmas), remember to get your free gift from Motörhead:
“Approximately six months before his death, the metal icon collaborated with Chris Declercq on what would become his final solo recording. ‘We Are The Ones’ is available to listen to […] now” – via NME
In case you missed it when it was first published, as I did, Metalwani.com has it in full, Dr. Brian May’s tribute to our legendary hero, Lemmy:
“He was the hell-raising, grizzled, frontman of Motörhead who took pride in his excessive hardcore lifestyle and once invited fans to ‘Love Me Like a Reptile.’
So when palaeontologists at the National History Museum were choosing a name for their new ferocious Jurassic sea-crocodile, Lemmy seemed the obvious choice.”
P.S.: Learn how to spell, Telegraph editors!
The rumoured Lemmy solo album may see the light of day later this year:
“Jim Voxx of Skew Siskin revealed this afternoon on Steve Göldby Talks Metal via TotalRock that he is working on Lemmy’s solo album which he estimates will be released later this year.”
Tonight, a year ago, we lost the man, the legend, one of the last of a dying breed, Mr. Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister. The hole he left is more gaping than any sinkhole, but the hefty catalog of work he left us stands tall and proud among the wreckage of rock’n’roll. Take care of George and Carrie, uncle rotter!
A short documentary on the making of the Lemmy statue at the Rainbow Bar and Grill has been posted on Youtube:
Also, the MC5, the inspiration for Motörhead, have been nominated for inclusion in the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame next year. Vote here to make sure they stand a chance of getting recognised!
Noisey have published the following interview as a part of their Guitar Moves series. It was shot a few months before Lemmy’s passing at the Rainbow.
