Lemmy

“Everything Louder”

Ian Fraser Kilmister, better known as Lemmy was born in born in Stoke-on-Trent, UK on December 24, 1945 and grew up in North Wales. He was an English musician, singer, and songwriter who founded and fronted the rock band Motörhead. His music was one of the foundations of the heavy metal genre. He was known for his appearance, his distinctive gravelly voice and distinctive bass playing style. Alongside his music career, he also had many minor roles in film and television.

 

Lemmy was influenced by rock and roll and the early 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 on their hit “Silver Machine”. After being fired from Hawkwind, he founded Motörhead as 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. Over the years as guitarists and drummers passed through Motörhead’s lineup, 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 guitar recast the bass as an overpowered, distorted rhythmic rumble.

 

Lemmy continued to record and tour regularly until his death on December 28th 2015 in Los Angeles, where he had lived since 1990.
