Sometimes it felt like it. Not often I get sad when an old man dies, but this one hits the feels a little.

"Extremely aggressive form of cancer..."

"...He first learned of the disease on Dec 26th..."

Holy shit, that was what, 2 days ago?

It's entirely possible that he was already half-dead by the time he figured that perhaps he should be checked out for the horrible wracking illness he'd had for weeks or months (if he indeed was ill for weeks or months beforehand, no idea on that).

The real Ace of Spades. :( You will be missed Lemmy, but for me you won't ever truly die, because I have your music and that will live on as long as we all keep listening to and enjoying it.

Edit: So bummed out but at least he went enjoying life, playing his favorite video game, and not in some hospital. Good on ya, don't forget to tell God you can take over from here. RIP

Shit. I would have thought Lemmy would live forever. I met him once, he was very funny.

Here's a news article covering his death: https://variety.com/2015/music/news/lemmy-motorhead-dies-dead-ian-fraser-kilmister-1201668541/

This was in the 80s, '85 or '86 if I had to guess. An old friend knew Lemmy very well as they had both lived in the same town in England. She introduced us after he played a show stateside. Lemmy spent most of the time swapping old drinking stories and hitting on my very-much married friend. Best line of the night was when another friend asked Lemmy how long he'd sung the way he did, and Lemmy replied "ever since I went deaf, ya twit." It was very funny at the time. For an intimidating guy, he was sharp-witted and an entertaining conversationalist.
