The man who lived his life like no other: Sex, Drugs and Rock’n’Roll were for sure his trade marks and he was enjoying and living life to the fullest until the end. A great artist, a gentleman, an honest and loyal person, an icon for many and an inspiration for his fellow musicians and fans. Born on Christmas Eve 1945 in Stoke on Trent in England, he founded the world famous band Motörhead in 1975 and lead his band through storm, rain and sunshine, all the way to the top with the very last record ‘Bad Magic’ who claimed No 1 in many European charts. Well known as a powerhouse trio, Motörhead was one of the hardest working band in the world, touring more than seven month out of the year and during time off always recording a new album for their fans.
Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister died peacefully on December 28th 2015 in Los Angeles.
