Got my ancient Night Of The Hawks ep playing as I'm typing this. Been Motorhead and Hawkwind all day in my house. Even had one of Dave Brock's solo jobs on (Agents Of Chaos). It's on cassette. The sound quality is dire but it really takes me back.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

He will be missed. Had loads of tales to tell, his autobiography white line fever is worth reading. Read it a few years back, might give it another go and have a good laugh.

Hard to believe he finished his European tour 20 odd days back. Trooper till the end.

Something which I have long been advocating on this very forum! :P Although its not particularly efficient.

RIP Lemmy, only know a handful of Motorhead songs, but clearly a well thought of and loved musician. He certainly outlasted many other greats, so 70 is by no means a bad knock for someone in his industry.

Cannot believe that Lemmy is dead

I honestly thought that when humanity had ended him, Ozzy and Iggy Pop would be left standing.

Not a Motorhead fan but can't deny his presence in the world's greatest music scene.
