When Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister died on December 28, 2015, it was automatically the end of Motörhead: Ultimately, all the remaining members of the group, no matter how long they were around and how much musical input they provided, were always just "sidekicks" to the band's founder. But not only Lemmy himself, Motörhead also became a legend, especially in the last 20 years of their existence, when the group managed to captivate an increasingly diverse audience that ended up being far larger than is the norm in the hard rock and heavy metal cosmos
It sounds macabre, but it's a status symbol: Lemmy made it to the Forest Lawn cemetery in L.A. - one of the top addresses for life after death. There he is now in good company: Humphrey Bogart, Jimmy Stewart, Spencer Tracy, Nat King Cole and, well, Michael Jackson. Whereby his death, which was based on aggressive cancer in the brain and neck, provided for an unbelievable sympathy. Even the Rainbow, his favourite pub, closed the tap - on a Saturday evening!
