Drummer Mikkey Dee Confirms That Motörhead Died with Lemmy
I don’t think anyone really expected Motörhead to try and continue without vocalist/bassist Lemmy Kilmister, who died yesterday at age seventy. Lemmy was very much the face and the heart of the band, so it’s basically impossible to imagine anyone taking his place.
And no one will. Drummer Mikkey Dee, who has been in the band since 1992, tells Sweden’s Expressen: “Motörhead is over, of course. Lemmy was Motörhead. But the band will live on in the memories of many.”
Dee also described Kilmister in his final months: “He was terribly gaunt, he spent all his energy on stage and afterwards he was very, very tired. It’s incredible that he could even play, that he could finish the Europe tour. It was only 20 days ago. Unbelievable.”
Unbelievable indeed. R.I.P. Lemmy. We miss you already.
