Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister, founding member of heavy metal band Motörhead, has passed away. He was 70 years old.
The legendary bad ass, bass player and iconic lead vocalist was born to raise hell — and he did, never apologizing for his hard-living lifestyle. Despite well-publicized accounts of failing health, he never slowed down. Before his death, he went on record with an announcement stating that he had switched from drinking whiskey to vodka for “health reasons.”
