Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister: Celebrate A Life Lived Loud And Fast

Watch Dave Grohl And CO. Smash ‘Ace Of Spades’

It is just weeks since we lost rock legend Lemmy Kilmister to cancer.  The Motorhead frontman was one of the most charismatic men in rock and “Ace Of Spades” is probably the song that defines Lemmy’s energy and attitude for many fans.

Of course whilst Lemmy may be gone his music lives on.  Whilst Lemmy’s contemporaries and those he has influenced are alive Lemmy will remain alive through his music output.

Lemmy and Motorhead have influenced numerous bands through the years and last night saw the gathering of a rock supergroup who paid tribute to Lemmy by performing “Ace Of Spades.”

According to Rolling Stone Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was a surprise guest at Friday night’s Dimebash, the annual celebration of late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell, and at the Los Angeles gig.

NME report that Grohl was joined by Pantera singer Phil Anselmo, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo and former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo as they joined together onstage to pay tribute to another late metal legend: Lemmy Kilmister.

Rest In Peace Lemmy.  We salute you.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
