Lemmy Kilmister, a working-class lad from Stoke on Trent, England who went on to be the inventor of Heavy Metal with his band Motorhead.

Lemmy's music was one of the foundations of the heavy metal genre.[1] He was known for his appearance, including his friendly mutton chops; gravelly, raspy singing voice, which was declared "one of the most recognisable voices in rock"; and his way of singing, looking up towards "a towering microphone tilted down into his weather-beaten face" He was also known for his bass playing style, using his Rickenbacker bass to create an "overpowered, distorted rhythmic rumble.

Motörhead's success peaked in 1980 and 1981 and included the hit single "Ace of Spades" and the chart-topping live album No Sleep 'til Hammersmith. Lemmy continued to record and tour regularly with Motörhead until his death in December 2015 in Los Angeles, where he had lived since 1990. Aside from his musical activities, he was well known for his hard-living lifestyle, which included chain-smoking and regular consumption of alcohol & amphetamines.

RIP Lemmy – The Rainbow on Sunset Strip will never be the same without you.
