I’ve respected the hell out of Lemmy Kilmister. Why? Simply because the fact that he loved what he did musically. He has played with Motorhead for over 30 years. They have a total of 23 studio albums and they’ve toured a lot more than making records. The reason is they were more of a live band which is what they were pretty much. Now that Lemmy is gone, I don’t think Motorhead will continue on without him ’cause Lemmy is Motorhead.
Lemmy was one of the hardest working musicians ever. He never stopped what he did. Always playing shows and always touring heavily. Even if he wasn’t in good health, he would perform the shows anyways. It showed that he had a real passion for music and it wasn’t about the fame & money at all for him. I love Motorhead. They’ve always been one of my favorite bands. Thanks to Apple Music streaming, I got to listen to most of their records.
When not playing music, Lemmy had a huge collection of WWII and Nazi memorabilia which he had a huge passion of. This may seem pretty weird but Lemmy was also a big video gamer. He also loved to go to casinos and play those slot machines during his spare time.
Lemmy died of some form of aggressive cancer. He was diagnosed with it 2 days before his death… I would say he may have gotten it after years of heavy smoking and drinking over the years probably. Years of heavy smoking would do that to you… I’m so glad I don’t smoke at all.
Thanks for the badass music over the years, Lemmy.
