Lemmy Kilmister

You Will Be Missed

I watched most of the live streamed memorial service for the late Motorhead legend, Lemmy. It was sweet, sad, touching… all the things memorials are. It was also occasionally slimy and showbizzy. Rob Halford name checking myriad PR firms, managers, etc. before speaking was a perfect example.

It was the stories that were sweet. Lemmy was, in the words of those who knew him, a wonderful guy. Funny, kind, generous, and completely rock and roll. It was moving.

What impressed me the most was the number of people online (250,000 +/- at any time), and the diversity of languages in the comments. Lemmy was a global icon. He truly was a legend and he is missed. Well done, sir.
