Saddened to read of Lemmy's passing. First time I saw Motorhead was the Ace of Spades tour, back in 1981 - I was 17/18 years old. They played the Old Waldorf in SF. At the time, I had never seen a band quite like them. Along with Philthy Animal Taylor and Fast Eddie Clarke the three of them were a site to see and hear. My body buzzed for days after that show. RIP Lemmy, thanks for all the great rock n roll and being the outlaw that you were. Dave in San Francisco
First had my eardrums shattered by Lemmy front of stage at a Hawkwind gig when their single "Silver Machine" was doing the business, thanks in no small measure to his - er - distinctive raspy vocals. And then came Motorhead - headbanging & eardrums completely destroyed, enough said. Not too long after Phil Taylor's demise as well. With Lemmy it's the passing of a real rock 'n' roll legend, on stage and off.
Rock and Roll just got a little less cool
