Sad to hear that the seemingly indestructible Lemmy Kilmister was not indestructible after all - he followed Philthy Animal Taylor, who died in November, into the great beyond today.
I loved Motorhead when I was in high school and still have a soft spot in my heart for the band up through Another Perfect Day in 1983.
That 1983 Motorhead album with Brian Robertson replacing Fast Eddie Clarke isn't a very popular one in the catalog, but I've always loved it - some of my favorite Motorhead songs are on that album, including Die You Bastard, Back On The Funny Farm, Dancing On Your Grave and Shine.
Motorhead isn't often on my playlist these days but listening again to Another Perfect Day and the live album No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith, I'm reminded how powerful the band was.
You won't see the likes of Lemmy Kilmister again on this planet - seriously, the man was one of a kind.
RIP Lemmy - No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith
