Legendary Motorhead front-man and Bassist Lemmy  has died following a short battle with cancer Tuesday (29th December), according to his band-mates.

Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, was 70 when he passed away and had announced the day after Christmas that he was battling “an extremely aggressive” form of cancer.

Lemmy was a true rockstar who was known for his hard-drinking, hard-living lifestyle as much as his distinctive, gravelly vocal style and was part of the monumentally influential band since its conception in 1975 and the 40 years that followed.

The band was heavily involved in shaping the way of hard rock and heavy metal and was regarded highly in the 1970’s British rock scene.
