Lemmy, RIP

They said it shouldn't be done, so he did it.

    God damn. Without dude, Metal would have died by 1980.
    Always saw him as a Keith Richards that us proles could relate to.

    70.

    To be fair, given the abuse he's doled out to his body, that is a good bat at the mortal wicket.  And he did say he didn't want to live forever.

    Keith Richards doubtless did a deal with a diabolic dude, although his whole steez is one extended Weekend at Bernies.

    He probably died in 1974.

    And several times since.

    Just saw he was diagnosed with cancer on 26th, and gone what 3 days later.
    That is both raw and hard as fuck.

    Sad... but it's safe to say he lived a FULL life.

    I'm going to revisit this documentary tonight:

    Sam gopal and hawkwind are benchmarks enough for one career let alone motorhead
    God has left the building and is now drinking whiskey where the cup never goes dry.
    Longlive the ultimate godfather of metal ,a warthog warhorse who created the blueprint.
    Born to lose live to win

    With all due respect, a Harlem Globetrotter should not be mentioned in the same breath as Lemmy.

    Brad of the Specials checked out today as well, aged 62. A crummy day for music.
