One of the league of seemingly indestructible aging rockers, Lemmy Kilminster died earlier today.
The bassist and Motorhead front-man died of an extremely aggressive cancer, which was just reported only two days ago. Plagued by various health issues over the past few years, the hard-living, hard-rocking Lemmy made no secret about his alcohol and drug use. He famously claimed he had consumed a bottle of Jack Daniel’s every day since turning 30.
“Apparently I am still indestructible,” he quipped, in a 2014 interview, saying that only death would keep him from performing.
To date, Motörhead have released twenty studio albums and achieved 30 million in sales worldwide.
