Word is emerging this morning that Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, the legendary frontman of iconic and wildly influential rock/metal outfit Motörhead has sadly passed away. He was 70.
Lost one of my best friends, Lemmy, today. He will be sadly missed. He was a warrior and a legend. I will see you on the other side.

Lemmy had been suffering ill health for a number of months, which caused him to postpone a number of planned Motörhead shows across Europe. The band released their 22nd studio album Bad Magic back in August.
