‘Nastiest sea creature to ever inhabit Earth’ named after Lemmy from Motörhead
“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.”
