Lemmy Kilmister passed away on December 28, 2015, at the age of 70, shortly after receiving a cancer diagnosis.
In 2015, due to Lemmy‘s declining health, MOTÖRHEAD had to cancel several shows, although they did manage to complete their European tour a few weeks before his passing.
In June 2020, it was revealed that Lemmy‘s life story would be brought to the big screen in a biopic titled “Lemmy.” The film will be directed by Greg Olliver, known for his work on the 2010 documentary of the same name, “Lemmy.”
Lemmy‘s ashes rest in a custom-made urn, which is permanently displayed in a columbarium at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood, California.
MOTÖRHEAD was a legendary British rock band formed in 1975 by iconic frontman Lemmy Kilmister. Known for their high-octane, raw sound that blended elements of rock and roll, punk, and heavy metal, they released their self-titled debut album in 1977. Their breakthrough came with the 1980 release of “Ace of Spades,” which solidified their status as a formidable force in the music world.
Throughout their career, MOTÖRHEAD was characterized by Lemmy‘s distinctive gravelly voice and a relentless, fast-paced style. The band achieved immense popularity and critical acclaim while maintaining a fiercely loyal fan base. Despite numerous lineup changes, MOTÖRHEAD remained a touring and recording force for decades.
