I can't believe it's been two years already. The day I heard I had returned from a bar (funnily enough drinking Jack and Coke), and I was devastated. It was always joked about that if a nuke was dropped the only things that would survive would be Lemmy and the cockroaches - it just didn't seem real. This man was a personal hero of mine, Motorhead's songs had helped me through some serious shit, they were the soundtrack to my late teens. I used to sit in my room playing video games with their CD's as loud as I could just to shut out the world.
Tonight I celebrated the man by watching Lemmy the Movie. What an awesome documentary. I will be raising a glass of Jack and Coke to a rock and roll icon.

I became a fan of Motorhead when I saw Lemmy on Headbanger's Ball and I thought "what a badass!" 1916 is one of my all time favorite albums ever, and I too was stunned, like Lemmy would outlast me somehow. It was therapeutic to be able to watch his memorial on Youtube.

I said this over Twitter at the time but I adored Lemmy, the documentary on him a few years ago, and my favourite moment from that was when the interviewer asked Lemmy what his most prized possession was. He had a tonne of golden records, posters, a tonne of WWII memorabilia, all that kind of thing.
He responds by moving his right arm, putting it around the person next to him and said “My most prized possession is my son”.
Right afterwards, his son said that it threw him off when he said that because, for as good and supportive his Dad was, that wasn’t something he ever really said to him or expected him to say.
It was a genuinely touching moment in a documentary I didn’t expect that moment to be in.
