TOPIC: R.I.P. Lemmy Kilmister

R.I.P. Lemmy Kilmister 4 years 1 month ago #1463



It took me a while to gather my thoughts about the passing of the great Lemmy Kilmister.

A dinosaur of sorts and an epitome of individuality, persistence and search from freedom in all the wrong and right places. As he used to say whatever fires you up; is good.

It was the summer of 2002 on Graspop Metal Meeting that I first saw Motorhead play live. First time I saw Lemmy in flesh and first time I drank with him while watching Mikkey Dee play football with some kids in backstage area.

Such was the energy on that rainy afternoon when the bad boy of Rock walked up to the mic and said Lets see if we can improve the weather, that my lady at the time and I totally lost it and had a shag right there in the midst of 50.000 people, 3 rows away from the stage.

There was something primal and almost spiritual to the dimension Motorhead brought to the rainy Graspop, that it made perfect sense they could move the clouds apart and affect the weather in same way they could affect the primal instincts of a talking primate such as me.

And they did By the time the last chord was struck and Lemmy grunted his thank you the sun was shining all over that festive meadow.

A few hours and some dry clothes later, I was still waiting for my backstage pass, insanely nervous as I was missing an opportunity of my life Just beyond that fence, Lemmy sat in the sun watching his drummer Mikkey Dee kick some ball with stagehands. On a table next to him was a bottle of Jack that he worked on with a studious concentration.

And then my pass arrived.

So I came over, confused if I should approach all in awe or play it cool, so I just said: Lemmy, can I have one drink with you?

And in his thick Brit accent he said No If you going to drink here with me now, grab your own bottle theres a crate in the back sit down and dont get up until we are both done with it

And so it was.

I cant say I remember much of the conversation we had, most of it lost in the mists of serious alcohol poisoning but I remember a promise, I hope I made good on.

As the bottles were almost done, Lemmy took a look at me and said You drink well for Belgian guy

So I told him where Im really from and his eyes lit up and he barked out SHLJIVOVITSA You got any?

Well I didnt not at that moment, I did promise to get him some, and a few years later I delivered some bottles to a venue he played in. I dont know if he got them, but I sure hope he did.

Because if he didnt, how the fuck am I going to live up to that promise now!?

Rest in Peace Great Lemmy Kilmister - You finally got Killed by Death, but at least some us can look forward to seeing each other again in that Heavenly Whorehouse.

Leave a shot of juice for me will ya brother

Cheers up for the Ace of Spades.

Rest in peace you ugly son of a bitch! I'd pour a drink on the ground for him but he would probably consider that blasphemy.

As for the rest of you... fret not my lambs, your shepherd still watches over you from above (or probably bellow).

You beat me to the punch. I wanted to pay my respects while not so subtly referencing the fact that the "ugliness" to "getting pussy" ratio was all fucked up when it comes to Lemmy. He gave all us ugly people a glimmer of hope
Oh, and his alcoholism... his gloriously epic alcoholism :lol:

I don't know how much Lemmy would appreciate all this religious talk.
This is one of my all time favorite quotes and I only today found out that it is his...



Whether you think he is an angel in heaven now, a demon in hell or just wormfood, honor his memory and remember all the great songs he touched our lives with.
R.I.P.

My mum looked so devastated when she found out... And I am sad....
It is a music before my time, but music that made music I like today. And Lemmy is a legend, a god of rock and a biggest pussy magnet that ever lived!
R.I.P. and respect!

Well, it is sad... But he had a life of a God, on his own terms, made a legend and a legacy. Life worth living!
I will not be forgotten This is my time to shine I've got the scars to prove it
Only the strong survive
I'm not afraid of dying Everyone has their time Life never favored weakness
Welcome to the pride

Ok, now you have to help me out with identifying everybody on that picture :)

The ones right next to Lemmy are Halford and Hetfield
On the far right we have Bruce Dickinson and on the far left it's King Diamond
The one right next to Hetfield is Dave Mustaine but I don't think he deserves to be in the company of such greatness (diehard Metallica fan here... I spit on Megadeth :angry: )

The ones I can't recognize are the bald dude next to Dickinson, and the guy right above Mustaine.
