What a shame..... Rock legend. Lemmy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Classic quote from Dave Grohl..... "We recorded his track in 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. F!*k Elvis and Keith Richards, Lemmy's the king of rock 'n' roll – he told me he never considered Motörhead a metal band, he was quite adamant. Lemmy's a living, breathing, drinking and snorting f...ing legend. No one else comes close."
