LEMMY passed away at the age of 70.

I'm really sorry to announce that one of the few remaining true legends of Rock music passed away.
Lemmy died yesterday at his home at the age of 70, just two days after learning that he was diagnosed with cancer.
Lemmy was a member of Hawkwind in the early '70's, and from 1975 till now, he was the leader of Motorhead. 
Despite that I never considered myself as a fan of Motorhead, I had a very big respect for him, and I feel really lucky for being able to see him on stage twice.
I will conclude this post with the exact words that his bandmates wrote for his death:
“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 learned of the disease on 26 December, and was at home, sitting in front of his favourite 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, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD. Have a drink or few.
“Share stories.
“Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.
“HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT.”
The band signed off: “Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister
“1945 -2015
“Born to lose, lived to win.”
