Yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles.
The singer with the brutal voice and as a bassplayer with the distorted bass is mourned by a whole world today.
His legacy on Rock n Roll, Hard Rock, Punk, Metal and Space Rock can't be understood by any mortal.
I doubt that the Exploited and Oi! music would have hit me so hard if it wasn't for his life work, Motörhead. The band was the perfect link between the Sex Pistols and the Exploited.
No one I had heard so far sounded like Lemmy.
The band brough unity between hard rockers and punks when there was a great divide between us.
They inspired generations, ten thousands of bands. It is beyond what can be understood by any of us.
And still so humble and down to earth.
A great Rock n roll warrior have moved on. Not dead, not gone, just moved to where he can join a band with Johnny Thunders, all of the Ramones, Philthy Animal and maybe be able to teach Sid Vicious how to play the bass.
Stay tuned for updates.
