Sad news coming out of L.A. this morning. Motorhead legend Ian Fraser Kilmister, best known to millions around the world as 'Lemmy' was sadly reported to be 'Killed by Death' in the early hours.
The veteran rock n roller known for hits such as 'Ace of Spades' and 'Overkill' was reportedly rushed into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Tuesday morning.
Guitarist and fellow band member Mikkey Dee told 'The Spoof', "Apparently he was found collapsed on the toilet, after a night of watching documentaries about German Tanks. The doctors have told close friends and family that he was simply 'Killed By Death".
Known for their ferocious live sets and 'turning it up to eleven' for over forty years, Motorhead and Lemmy will go down in the annals of rock history.
Shortly before his 'death' Lemmy gave an interview to be aired on BBC2 later this month, rather prophetically he was quoted as saying "Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you".
We'll bring you more details on this sad news as we get it.
