Just a few weeks after Scott Weiland’s death, another rocker died and he’s one of the legends of rock. British heavy metal band Motörhead frontman and founding member Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister was reported dead at the age of 70 on a post by his longtime friend, TV and radio host Eddie Trunk on his Twitter page.
After the post, several others have confirmed his demise, including Ozzy Osbourn.
His band wrote a statement on their Facebook page, “There is no easy way to say this… our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from the Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family. We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness, there aren’t words. We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please… play Motörhead loud.”
Lemmy, as what he’s popularly known, was diagnosed with cancer. For those of you who is not familiar with Motörhead but is a wrestling fan, the band wrote the song for WWE’s Triple H main entrance.
He will sorely be missed. Rest in Peace.
