Motörhead's Lemmy Kilmister passes away

Written By Powertrip Radio on Tuesday, December 29, 2015 | 2:17 PM

Powertrip Radio is saddened to learn of the passing of rock legend Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister. Lemmy was the lead vocalist for Motörhead, which performed multiple WWE entrance themes, including Triple H's "The Game," Evolution's "Line in the Sand" theme and the "King of Kings" music, which debuted at WrestleMania 22 and typically plays The Authority to the ring today. Motörhead also played "The Game" live at WrestleMania X-Seven and WrestleMania 21 before Triple H's matches against The Undertaker and Batista, respectively.

Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister (24 December 1945 – 28 December 2015) was an English musician, singer, and songwriter who founded and fronted the rock band Motörhead. His music and lifestyle was a distinctive part of the heavy metal genre.
Lemmy was born in Stoke-on-Trent and grew up in North Wales. He was influenced by rock and roll and the early Beatles, which led to him playing in several rock groups in the 1960s, most significantly the Rockin' Vickers. He worked as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix and The Nice, before joining the space rock band Hawkwind in 1971, singing lead on their hit "Silver Machine". After being fired from Hawkwind, he founded Motörhead as lead singer, bassist, songwriter and frontman. Motörhead's success peaked in 1980 and 1981 and included the hit single "Ace of Spades". Lemmy continued to record and tour regularly with Motörhead until his death in December 2015.
Aside from his musical skills, Lemmy was well known for his hard living lifestyle and regular consumption of alcohol and amphetamines. He was also noted for his collection of Nazi memorabilia, although he did not support Nazi ideals. He made several cameo appearances in film and television.


Early life

Lemmy was born on Christmas Eve in the Burslem area of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.[1][2] When Lemmy was three months old, his father, an ex-Royal Air Force chaplain, separated from his mother. His mother and grandmother moved to nearby Newcastle-under-Lyme, then moved again to Madeley, another nearby town.[3] When Lemmy was 10, his mother married former footballer George Willis, who already had two older children from a previous marriage, Patricia and Tony, with whom Lemmy did not get along.

The family moved to a farm in Benllech on the Welsh island of Anglesey,[4] with Lemmy later commenting on his time there, that "funnily enough, being the only English kid among 700 Welsh ones didn't make for the happiest time – but it was interesting from an anthropological point of view".[5] He attended Sir Thomas Jones' School in Amlwch, where he was nicknamed Lemmy, although he was unsure why; it would later be claimed that the name originated from the phrase "lemmy [lend me] a quid till Friday" because of his habit of borrowing money from people to feed his addiction to slot machines.[3][6][7] He soon started to show an interest in rock and roll music, girls, and horses.
By the time he left school his family had relocated to Conwy, still in northern Wales. There he worked at menial jobs including one in the local Hotpoint electric appliance factory, while also playing guitar for local bands, such as the Sundowners, and spending time at a horse-riding school.[3] Lemmy saw the Beatles perform at The Cavern Club when he was 16, and then learned to play along on guitar to their first album Please Please Me. He also admired the sarcastic attitude of the group, particularly that of John Lennon.[8]

At the age of 17, he met a holidaying girl called Cathy. He followed her to Stockport, where she eventually had his son Sean, who was put up for adoption.[3] In the 2010 documentary film Lemmy, Lemmy mentions having a son whose mother has only recently "found him" and "hadn't got the heart to tell him who his father was", indicating the boy – perhaps Sean – was given up for adoption. 

Drugs and alcohol

Lemmy was well known for his intake of alcohol. In the documentary Live Fast Die Old, it was revealed that he drank a bottle of Jack Daniel's every day and had done so since he was 30 years old.[31] In 2013, Lemmy stopped drinking Jack Daniel's for health reasons.[32]
During his time with Hawkwind, he developed an appetite for amphetamines and LSD, particularly the former. Before joining Hawkwind, he recalled Dik Mik, a former Hawkwind sound technician, visiting his squat in the middle of the night and taking speed with him. They became interested in how long "you could make the human body jump about without stopping," which they did for a few months, until Mik ran out of money and wanted to return to Hawkwind, taking Lemmy with him.[6]
I first got into speed because it was a utilitarian drug and kept you awake when you needed to be awake, when otherwise you'd just be flat out on your back. If you drive to Glasgow for nine hours in the back of a sweaty truck you don't really feel like going onstage feeling all bright and breezy... It's the only drug I've found that I can get on with, and I've tried them all – except smack [heroin] and morphine: I've never "fixed" anything.[6]
In November 2005, he was invited to the National Assembly for Wales as a guest speaker by Tory member William Graham. He was asked to express his views on the detrimental effects of drugs, and called for the legalisation of heroin: "I have never had heroin but since I moved to London from North Wales in '67 I have mixed with junkies on a casual and almost daily basis," he said. "I also lived with a young woman who tried heroin just to see what it was like. It killed her three years later. I hate the idea even as I say it, but I do believe the only way to treat heroin is to legalise it." He stated that legalisation would eradicate the drug dealer from society

Death

On 28 December 2015, four days after his 70th birthday, Lemmy died at his home in Los Angeles, California, at 16:00 PST from an "extremely aggressive cancer."[44] Motörhead announced his death on their official Facebook page later that day. According to the band, his cancer had only been diagnosed two days prior to his death.[45]
Reviewing his career after his death, The Guardian said:
Over the years as guitarists and drummers passed through Motörhead’s line up, Lemmy remained the grizzled heart of the machine. His bronchial rasp – directed into a towering microphone tilted down into his weather-beaten face - was one of the most recognisable voices in rock, while his Rickenbacker guitar recast the bass as an overpowered, distorted rhythmic rumble.[46]
In his 2002 autobiography White Line Fever, Lemmy had written:
"People don’t become better when they’re dead; you just talk about them as if they are, but it’s not true! People are still a--holes, they’re just dead a--holes! ... I didn’t have a really important life, but at least it’s been funny.

Batchelder Bobcats of the Month and Students of the Month joined super-fun Celtics rookies (l. to r.) Jordan Mickey, Terry Rozier, and R.J. Hunter for a game of kickball.

Written By Powertrip Radio on Saturday, October 17, 2015 | 8:31 AM

Celtics players, legends and volunteers, along with Optum volunteers and students from Louis W. Batchelder, completed projects designed by the Care Force division of City Year to help enhance areas around the school. The day of volunteering also included a school-wide assembly with all students, remarks from Celtics and Optum executives, and a post-event dinner.

It's good to be a Batchelder Bobcat of the Month!
 
Among those involved in the event were Celtics rookies R.J. Hunter, Jordan Mickey and Terry Rozier, Celtics Legends Leon Powe and Tom “Satch” Sanders, Celtics Dancers, Optum Executive Vice President Mike Matteo and Chief Engagement and Partnership Officer for the Hartford Public Schools Deidre Tavera.

“We were excited to spend time with the students of Batchelder at their school today,” said Rozier. “It was fun to play kickball and see all of the renovation projects take place.”
 
The students got a kick out of getting their shirts signed by the Celtics rookies.
 
“We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with the Boston Celtics to create engaging, active, healthy areas for the students of Louis W. Batchelder School,” said Matteo, Executive Vice President, Optum.

“On behalf of everyone at Hartford Public Schools we extend our thanks to the Celtics players, legends and volunteers, along with Optum volunteers, the Care Force division of City Year, and students, staff and community members from Louis W. Batchelder School who together completed so many exciting projects to improve the functionality and aesthetics in vital areas around the school,” said Dr. Beth Schiavino-Narvaez, Superintendent of Hartford Public Schools. “We are so appreciative of this invaluable partnership which comes together each year to support our schools and our students.”
 
 
The partnership between Optum and the Boston Celtics began in the spring of 2013. One of the main goals of this partnership is for employees of both organizations to engage in volunteer activities together to help improve their surrounding communities, a core value of both the Celtics and Optum.
