I don't think he (Lemmy) was much of a footballer, but I know he played at Vale Park and the Racecourse Ground! Total legend - the world of metal will be poorer without him. How he lived into his 70s is one of life's mysteries. He died just 2 days after he was diagnosed with cancer. I had the privilege of seeing the band a couple of times back in the 80s when they were at their pomp, including Fast Eddie's last gig with them. My No. 2 Son is carrying on with the family tradition, and has a ticket to see them next month in Manchester, which will probably have to be cancelled. Can't imagine Motorhead without Lemmy. With Phil Taylor last month, and Lemmy this month, 2015 is the end of an era.

Very well put. They influenced many bands including Metallica who said there would be no Metallica if it weren't for Motorhead. I believe drummer Lars Ulrich ran the Motorhead fan club in the US for a while as a teenager.

Lemmy was certainly one of a kind. A kid once asked him if he had hangovers and he replied, "You have to stop drinking to get hangovers."

I for one will miss his music.

Another quote: "If we move in next to you, your lawn will die."

Lemmy was given 2 minutes on the main BBC TV news bulletins yesterday. Would that have happened 30-40 years ago?

Maybe not, but where are the tribute programmes? If one of the awful boy bands bit the dust you likely wouldn't be able to switch on your TV without being force fed their gooey crap that masquerades as music. Rock 'n' roll is almost always relegated to the position of a footnote on mainstream TV.

Hawkwind mid 73........I've vague memories of a night at the Kinetic Circus, Birmingham where Hawkwind (not sure with or without Lemmy, but certainly with Stacia) suported a sadly Morrison-less Doors.

Good value for 10/6 if I remember correctly (mind you, I might not, as it was (a) a very good night and (b) a very long time ago).

What was that ? RIP you say?? Ah. you'll mean Rock In Perpetuity!

She did tend to take the attention away from the rest of the band when you are a teenager Blush

There's more chance of FC Clacton reaching the premiership in the next 10 years. Unsure

I hear a social media campaign has been set up for one of the four new periodic table elements that scientists have just discovered to be named after Lemmy.
The campaigners are calling for the element 118 to be named LemmiumPirate.

There is a degree of scientific sense here.

After all, these metals are likely to be pretty 'heavy' (i.e. dense) and Motorhead were pretty much the epitome of heavy metal....so why not?

I understand there's a pretty heavy group named after osmium - currently the densest metal element known
