Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister, the beloved bass player and larger than life frontman of the legendary heavy metal band Motörhead, suddenly and sadly passed away on December 28, 2015 from a very aggressive form of cancer that was only recently diagnosed. Lemmy had just turned 70 years old on December 24. Messages of condolence, memories and love for Lemmy can be left on his personal Facebook page.
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.

Best description of how everyone I know feels today: "Our Elvis died today."
