Lemmy is an inspiration to us all. The man spent 50 years on the road, doing what he loved. That included, in no particular order: drinking excessively, drugging excessively, screwing excessively, and rock n’ rolling excessively. He also read excessively, but I didn’t include that one in the last sentence ’cause it just didn’t pack the same punch. Even if you did not know Lemmy before (now you do, you’re welcome), you have to admire the man’s adherence to the only lifestyle he could ever have imagined: that of a Rock n’ Roll GOD. Thanks for the wealth of music you left behind, Lemmy. I will keep it close as I navigate the perilous roads ahead. No matter what happens in this life, I can rest easy knowing I will have Motörhead to guide me all the way.
I will end this post with a few words from Mr. Lemmy himself:
“We are Motörhead and we play Rock n’ Roll. Don’t forget us.”
…And we never will.
