Ian Fraser Kilmister (24 December 1945 – 28 December 2015), better known as Lemmy, was an English musician and singer-songwriter who founded and fronted the rock band Motörhead. His music was one of the foundations of the heavy metal genre.[1] He was known for his appearance (including his friendly mutton chops), his distinctive gravelly, "rasp[y]" singing voice, which "...was one of the most recognisable voices in rock", and his way of singing, looking up towards "...a towering microphone tilted down into his weather-beaten face".[2] He was also known for his unmistakable bass playing style, in which he used his Rickenbacker
Rickenbacker
bass to create an "overpowered, distorted rhythmic rumble".[2] Another unique aspect of Lemmy's bass sound is that he often played power chords using growling overdriven Marshall tube bass stacks. Alongside his music career, he also had many minor roles and cameo appearances in film and television. Lemmy

and later North Wales. He was influenced by rock and roll and the early works of the Beatles, which led to him playing in several rock groups in the 1960s; including the Rockin' Vickers. He worked as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix

and The Nice, before joining the space rock band Hawkwind in 1971, singing lead vocals on their hit "Silver Machine". After being fired from Hawkwind
Hawkwind
for drug possession in 1975, he founded Motörhead

during the same year as the lead singer, bassist, songwriter and frontman. Motörhead's success peaked in 1980 and 1981 and included the hit single "Ace of Spades" and the top charting live album No Sleep 'til Hammersmith. Lemmy

Early life[edit] Lemmy
Lemmy
was born on Christmas Eve in the Burslem
Burslem
area of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.[3][4] When he was three months old, his father,[5] an ex- Royal Air Force
Royal Air Force
chaplain and concert pianist, separated from his mother. His mother and grandmother moved to nearby Newcastle-under-Lyme, then to Madeley.[6] When Lemmy
Lemmy
was ten years old, his mother married former footballer George Willis, who already had two older children from a previous marriage, Patricia and Tony, with whom Lemmy
Lemmy
did not get along. The family moved to a farm in the Welsh town of Benllech, Anglesey, with Lemmy
Lemmy
later commenting that "funnily enough, being the only English kid among 700 Welsh ones didn't make for the happiest time, but it was interesting from an anthropological point of view".[7] He attended Sir Thomas Jones' School in Amlwch, where he was nicknamed "Lemmy". It was later suggested by some that the name originated from the phrase "lemmy [lend me] a quid 'til Friday" because of his alleged habit of borrowing money from people to play slot machines,[6][8][9][10] although Lemmy
Lemmy
himself said that he did not know the origin of the name.[11] He soon started to show an interest in rock and roll music, girls, and horses. At school, Lemmy
Lemmy
noticed a pupil who had brought a guitar to school and had been "surrounded by chicks". His mother had a guitar, which he then took to school, even though he could not play, and was himself surrounded by girls. By the time he left school, his family had moved to Conwy. Whilst there, he worked at menial jobs; including one at the local Hotpoint
Hotpoint
electric appliance factory, while also playing guitar for local bands such as the Sundowners and spending time at a horse-riding school.[6] Lemmy
Lemmy
saw the Beatles perform at the Cavern Club when he was sixteen, and then learned to play along on guitar to their first album Please Please Me. He also admired the sarcastic attitude of the group, particularly that of John Lennon.[12] Recording and performing career[edit]

1960–1970: Early years[edit] In Stockport, Lemmy
Lemmy
joined local bands the Rainmakers and then the Motown Sect who played northern clubs for three years. In 1965, he joined the Rockin' Vickers[13] who signed a deal with CBS, released three singles and toured Europe, reportedly being the first British band to visit the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The Rockin' Vickers moved to Manchester, where they shared a flat together. There, Lemmy
Lemmy
got involved with a woman named Tracy who bore him a son, Paul Inder. Lemmy
Lemmy
did not have any involvement in his life until the boy was six.[6] Leaving the Rockin' Vickers, Lemmy
Lemmy
moved to London in 1967. He shared a flat with Noel Redding, bassist of the Jimi Hendrix
Jimi Hendrix
Experience, and with Neville Chesters, their manager. He got a job as a roadie for the band.[1] In 1968, he joined the psychedelic rock band Sam Gopal under the name Ian Willis and recorded the album Escalator which was released in 1969.[14] After meeting Simon King at a shopping centre in Chelsea in 1969, he joined the band Opal Butterfly; but the group soon disbanded, having failed to raise enough interest with their singles.[6] 1971–1975: Hawkwind[edit]

In August 1971, Lemmy
Lemmy
joined the space rock band Hawkwind, who were based in Ladbroke Grove, London, as a bassist and vocalist. He had no previous experience as a bass guitarist, and was cajoled into joining immediately before a benefit gig in Notting Hill
Notting Hill
by bandmate Dik Mik to have two members who enjoyed amphetamines.[15] He quickly developed a distinctive style that was strongly shaped by his early experience as a rhythm guitarist, often using double stops and chords rather than the single note lines preferred by most bassists. His bass work was a fundamental part of the Hawkwind
Hawkwind
sound during his tenure, perhaps best documented on Space Ritual. He also provided the lead vocals on several songs, including the band's biggest UK chart single, "Silver Machine", which reached #3 in 1972. In 1975, Lemmy
Lemmy
was arrested at the Canada/United States border in Windsor, Ontario, on drug possession charges; he spent five days in jail but was released without charge. Nonetheless, he was fired from Hawkwind.[16] 1975–2015: Motörhead[edit] Main article: Motörhead After Hawkwind, Lemmy
Lemmy
formed a new band called "Bastard" with guitarist Larry Wallis (former member of the Pink Fairies, Steve Took's Shagrat and UFO) and drummer Lucas Fox. Lemmy
Lemmy
and Took were friends, and Took was the stepfather to Lemmy's son Paul. When his manager informed him that a band by the name of "Bastard" would never get a slot on Top of the Pops, Lemmy
Lemmy
changed the band's name to "Motörhead" – the title of the last song he had written for Hawkwind.[17] Soon after, both Wallis and Fox were replaced with guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke and drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor and with this line-up, the band began to achieve success. Lemmy's guttural vocals were unique in rock at that time, and were copied during the time when punk rock became popular. The band's sound appealed to Lemmy's original fans and, eventually, to fans of punk. Lemmy
Lemmy
asserted that he generally felt more kinship with punks than with metalheads; he even played with the Damned for a handful of gigs when they had no regular bassist.[18] The band's success peaked in 1980 and 1981 with several UK chart hits, including the single "Ace of Spades", which remained a crowd favourite throughout the band's career, and the UK #1 live album No Sleep 'til Hammersmith. Motörhead
Motörhead
became one of the most influential bands in the heavy metal genre. Their – and Lemmy's – final live performance was in Berlin, Germany
Germany
on 11 December 2015.[19] Personal life[edit]

At the age of 17, Lemmy
Lemmy
met a holidaying girl named Cathy. He followed her to Stockport, Greater Manchester, where she gave birth to his son Sean, who was put up for adoption.[6] In the 2010 documentary film Lemmy, he mentioned having a son whose mother has only recently "found him" and "hadn't got the heart to tell him who his father was", indicating that the boy – perhaps Sean – was given up for adoption. In the Channel 4
Channel 4
documentary Motörhead: Live Fast, Die Old, broadcast on 22 August 2005, it was claimed that Lemmy
Lemmy
had "bedded" in excess of 2,000 women. Lemmy
Lemmy
stated: "I said more than a thousand, the magazine made two thousand of it." Maxim had Lemmy
Lemmy
at #8 on its top ten "Living Sex Legends" list, as they claimed that he had slept with around 1,200 women.[20] Lemmy
Lemmy
is one of the characters in the book Sex Tips from Rock Stars by Paul Miles.[21] Dave Grohl, on his Probot
Probot
website, describes musicians with whom he has worked. In his entry for Lemmy, he wrote:

We recorded his track in Los Angeles
Los Angeles
in maybe two takes about a year and a half ago. Until then I'd never met what I'd call a real rock 'n' roll hero before. Fuck Elvis
Elvis
and Keith Richards, Lemmy's the king of rock 'n' roll – he told me he never considered Motörhead
Motörhead
a metal band, he was quite adamant. Lemmy's a living, breathing, drinking and snorting fucking legend. No one else comes close.[22]

Lemmy
Lemmy
was well known for his alcohol abuse. The documentary Live Fast Die Old stated that he drank a bottle of Jack Daniel's
Jack Daniel's
every day and had done so since he was 30 years old.[23] In 2013, Lemmy
Lemmy
stopped drinking Jack Daniel's
Jack Daniel's
for health reasons.[24] During his time with Hawkwind
Hawkwind
he developed an appetite for amphetamines and LSD, particularly the former. Before joining Hawkwind, he recalled Dik Mik, a former Hawkwind
Hawkwind
sound technician, visiting his squat in the middle of the night and taking speed with him. They became interested in how long "you could make the human body jump about without stopping", which they did for a few months, until Mik ran out of money and wanted to return to Hawkwind, taking Lemmy
Lemmy
with him.[9]

I first got into speed because it was a utilitarian drug and kept you awake when you needed to be awake, when otherwise you'd just be flat out on your back. If you drive to Glasgow
Glasgow
for nine hours in the back of a sweaty truck you don't really feel like going onstage feeling all bright and breezy ... It's the only drug I've found that I can get on with, and I've tried them all – except smack [heroin] and morphine: I've never "fixed" [i.e., injected] anything.[9]

In November 2005, he was invited to the National Assembly for Wales
National Assembly for Wales
as a guest speaker by Conservative member William Graham. He was asked to express his views on the detrimental effects of drugs, and called for the legalisation of heroin. He stated that legalisation would eradicate the drug dealer from society and generate money from its taxation, however hard this would be to accept.[25] Lemmy
Lemmy
collected German military regalia; he had an Iron Cross encrusted on his bass, which led to accusations of Nazi sympathies. He stated that he collected the memorabilia because he liked the way it looked, and considered himself an anarchist or libertarian.[26][27] Lemmy
Lemmy
said he was against religion, government, and established authority.[28][29] In 2011, he identified as agnostic, saying, "I can find out when I die. I can wait. I'm not in a hurry."[30] Jeff Hanneman, the founder of the thrash metal band Slayer, befriended Lemmy
Lemmy
due to their shared fondness for collecting Nazi memorabilia.[31] According to Keith Emerson's autobiography, Lemmy gave him two of his Hitler Youth knives during his time as a roadie for the Nice. Emerson used these knives many times as keyholders when playing the Hammond organ
Hammond organ
during concerts with the Nice and Emerson, Lake & Palmer before destroying them. Lemmy
Lemmy
defended his collection by saying that if his black girlfriend had no problem with it, nobody else should.[29] Later years, Illness and death[edit] Lemmy
Lemmy
lived in Los Angeles, from 1990 until his death, most recently in a two-room apartment two blocks away from his favourite hangout, the Rainbow Bar and Grill.[32] In December 2000, his tour was cancelled when he was hospitalised in Italy with flu, exhaustion and a lung infection.[33] He was hospitalised with extreme dehydration and exhaustion in Germany
Germany
in July 2005.[34] As he grew older, he used less alcohol and drugs as he suffered from diabetes and hypertension. In June 2013, it was reported that he had an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator fitted.[1] His tour was cancelled in July 2013 due to a severe haematoma.[35] He referred to his continuing drug use as "dogged insolence in the face of mounting opposition to the contrary".[29] Towards the end of his life he had to use a walking stick.[36] He had started smoking at the age of 11.[37] In August 2015, he said he had cut down his smoking habit from two packs a day to one pack a week.[38] He was hospitalised with a lung infection in September 2015, after having breathing problems when performing onstage.[39]

Lemmy's grave at Forest Lawn, Hollywood

On 28 December 2015, four days after his 70th birthday, Lemmy
Lemmy
died at his apartment in Los Angeles
Los Angeles
at 4pm PST, from prostate cancer, cardiac arrhythmia and congestive heart failure.[40][41][42] Motörhead announced his death on their official Facebook page later that day. According to the band, his cancer had only been diagnosed two days prior to his death.[43] Lemmy's manager, Todd Singerman, later revealed:

He [Lemmy] gets home [from tour], we have a big birthday party for him at the Whisky A Go Go. His friends came down and played. Two days later I could tell he wasn't feeling good. So we took him to the hospital. They release him. Then after the brain scan, they found the cancer in his brain and his neck. The doctor comes with the result a couple of days later and says "It's terminal."[44]

Lemmy's doctor had given him between two and six months to live. Following the terminal diagnosis, Rainbow Bar owner Mikael Maglieri brought a video game machine that Lemmy
Lemmy
was fond of playing at the establishment over to his apartment so he could continue playing it from his bedside.[45] Although his manager had planned to keep the news private until his eventual death, Lemmy
Lemmy
strongly encouraged him to make the diagnosis public in early 2016, but he died before a press release could be drafted.[45] Funeral[edit] Lemmy's memorial service took place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Hollywood Hills, on 9 January 2016.[1] The service was streamed live over YouTube with more than 230,000 people logging on to watch,[46] while others gathered at the Rainbow. His body was cremated following the funeral. His remains were placed in a 3D-printed mantelpiece shaped like his trademark cavalry hat and emblazoned with the slogan "born to lose, lived to win".[47] The piece was on display during his funeral and was later interred at Forest Lawn.[47] Tributes[edit] In various media, additional tributes appeared from fellow rock stars such as Ozzy Osbourne,[48] Alice Cooper, Metallica,[49] Scott Ian
Scott Ian
of Anthrax,[50] and Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath
guitarist Tony Iommi.[51] Reviewing his career after his death, The Daily Telegraph
The Daily Telegraph
said:

Over the years as guitarists and drummers passed through Motörhead’s lineup, Lemmy
Lemmy
remained the grizzled heart of the machine. His bronchial rasp—directed into a towering microphone tilted down into his weather-beaten face, was one of the most recognisable voices in rock, while his Rickenbacker
Rickenbacker
guitar recast the bass as an overpowered, distorted rhythmic rumble.[2]

In 2005, the UK magazine Classic Rock presented Lemmy
Lemmy
with its first "Living Legend" award.[52] In a 2013 interview with the magazine, Lemmy
Lemmy
said he had never expected to make it to 30, but he spoke very pointedly about the future, indicating neither he nor the band were obsessing about the end:

Death is an inevitability, isn't it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don't worry about it. I'm ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn't complain. It's been good.[53]

In February 2016, the Hollywood Vampires performed at the Grammy Award ceremony as a tribute to Lemmy.[54] On 11 June, Download Festival
Download Festival
paid tribute to Lemmy
Lemmy
by renaming the main stage the " Lemmy
Lemmy
Stage", and in the slot where Motorhead were due to play, there was a video tribute to Lemmy
Lemmy
in which they played his music and his peers talked about him.[citation needed] On 17 November, Metallica
Metallica
released a tribute song titled "Murder One", named after Lemmy's frequently used amp. The song, from their album Hardwired... to Self-Destruct, depicts Lemmy's rise to fame. On 18 January 2017, Lemmy
Lemmy
was inducted into the Hall of Heavy Metal
Metal
History for being the creator of thrash metal.[55] In 2017, the extinct crocodile-relative Lemmysuchus[56] was named after Lemmy.[57] Collaborations and songwriting[edit] Lemmy
Lemmy
worked with several musicians, apart from his Motörhead bandmates, over the course of his career. He wrote the song "R.A.M.O.N.E.S" for the Ramones, which he played in his live sets as a tribute to the band. He was brought in as a songwriter for Ozzy Osbourne's 1991 No More Tears
No More Tears
album, providing lyrics for the tracks "Hellraiser," (which Motörhead
Motörhead
later recorded themselves and released as a single), "Desire," "I Don't Want to Change the World" and the single "Mama I'm Coming Home". Lemmy
Lemmy
noted in several magazine and television interviews that he made more money from the royalties of that one song than he had in his entire time with Motörhead. After being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2000, for which he was hospitalised briefly, Lemmy
Lemmy
again appeared with Motörhead
Motörhead
at WrestleMania X-Seven. Lemmy
Lemmy
published his autobiography, White Line Fever, in November 2002. In 2005 Motörhead
Motörhead
won their first Grammy in the Best Metal
Metal
Performance category with their cover of Metallica's "Whiplash". In the same year he began recording an unreleased solo album titled Lemmy
Lemmy
& Friends, which was intended to include a collaboration with Janet Jackson.[58] Film and television[edit] Cameo appearances[edit] Lemmy
Lemmy
made appearances in film and television, including the 1990 science fiction film Hardware and the 1987 comedy Eat the Rich, for which Motörhead
Motörhead
also recorded the soundtracks including the title song. He appeared as himself in the 1986 The Comic Strip Presents... episode More Bad News, along with fellow heavy metal musicians Ozzy Osbourne, the Scorpions and Def Leppard. In 1984, Motörhead
Motörhead

Lemmy
has a cameo in Ron Jeremy's 1994 pornographic film John Wayne Bobbitt Uncut as the discoverer of Bobbitt's severed penis. The appendage is thrown from the window of a moving car and lands at Lemmy's feet who exclaims: "Looks like a dick! Fucking hell! Ah well, it's not mine at least." The film's soundtrack also features the Motörhead
Motörhead
song "Under the Knife".[61] He has also appeared in several movies from Troma

positioned his microphone in an uncommonly high position, angled so that he appeared to be looking up at the sky rather than at the audience. He said that it was for "personal comfort, that's all. It's also one way of avoiding seeing the audience. In the days when we only had ten people and a dog, it was a way of avoiding seeing that we only had ten people and a dog."[73] Lemmy's first bass was a Hopf model that he bought soon after joining Hawkwind.[74] For the majority of his career, he used Rickenbacker basses.[75] In September 1996, his Rickenbacker
Rickenbacker
bass was featured in the Bang Your Head exhibition at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
in Cleveland, Ohio, US.[76] Rickenbacker

have introduced a signature 4004LK " Lemmy

Kilmister" bass.[77] He used a large, powerful, loud bass stack made by Marshall Amplification. Specifically, he used Marshall JMP Super Bass amplifier heads to drive three cabinets, each with four 15" speakers; the three heads were labelled "Killer," "No Remorse," and "Murder One". After he blew up "Murder One" he replaced it with a Marshall he named "Marsha". Early on he used perhaps his best known amp named "Hammer".[78] Discography[edit]
