Lemmy Kilmister was the founder of Motörhead and one of the hardest-living rock stars in the business.
Lemmy Kilmister, or simply Lemmy to his fans, was the singer and bass player for the band Motörhead, which is considered to be one of the founding bands of the new wave of British heavy metal. Born on Christmas Eve, 1945, Lemmy would spend the next 70 years drinking, snorting, rocking, and, if Lemmy himself is to be believed, bedding somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,200 different women.
Claiming to have drunk an entire bottle of Jack Daniels every day since the time he was 30, Lemmy’s lifestyle eventually caught up with him. He had diabetes, hypertension, and even had a defibrillator implanted in his chest. He passed three days after his 70th birthday on December 28, 2015. Which is actually kind of surprising considering how hard he lived.
