Motorhead are no more

British rock/metal icons Motörhead have announced that, following the death of lead singer/bassist Lemmy yesterday, they have split up after 40 years of recording and performing. Drummer Mikkey Dee states:

“Motörhead is over, of course. Lemmy was Motörhead. But the band will live on in the memories of many.

We will not be doing any more tours or anything. And there will not be any more records. But the fire survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone.”

Lemmy, who was the only remaining original member left in Motörhead, died of cancer at the age of 70 in his home in Los Angeles. The band’s last album, Bad Magic, was released four months before Lemmy’s passing.

Lemmy of Motörhead dies of cancer

Lemmy, the legendary frontman of Motörhead, died today at the age of 70 after a “short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer.” The surviving members of Motörhead write:

“There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.

We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness, there aren’t words.

We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please…play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD. 
Have a drink or few.

Share stories.

Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.


Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister

1945 -2015

Born to lose, lived to win.

Live Video: Classic Motörhead lineup performing together for the first time since 1982

The classic lineup of Motörhead (Lemmy, “Fast” Eddie Clarke and Phil “Philthy” Taylor) were reunited last Thursday (November 6th) at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England, where they shared the stage for the first time since 1982 on a rendition of the Motörhead classic “Ace of Spades”. You can watch a video of the performance below.

The classic Motörhead lineup, which lasted from 1976 to 1982, recorded the band’s first five studio albums and their 1981 iconic live album No Sleep ’til Hammersmith before parting ways with guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke in 1982. Drummer Phil “Philthy” Taylor remained in Motörhead until 1984, only to return from 1987 to 1992.

Motörhead released their latest album Aftershock in October 2013. The band recently announced that they will enter the studio around January to begin recording their next record.

Motörhead to enter the studio around January

In a recent interviewMotörhead bassist/vocalist Lemmy revealed that the iconic British heavy metal band will enter the studio around January to begin recording their next studio album for a tentative late 2015 release. He simply said:

“We’ll probably go in in January to start…We don’t have a plan. Motörhead never has a plan.”

Almost a year has passed since Motörhead released their latest album Aftershock.

Lemmy (Motörhead) talks about his future and health problems

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Lemmy of Motörhead revealed that one of his most frequent visitors during his recent recovery from a number of health issues — which included heart trouble, diabetes and surgery — was former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash. He stated:

“He was at my house more than he’s ever been before, encouraging me. He’s a really fucking good guy.”

In the same interview, Lemmy, who is now 68 years old, said that he can foresee the day when Motörhead will spend less time touring and spend more time in the studio. He said that he will stay on the road “as long as he can,” and added, “You kind of owe it to the people that put you up here. You should deliver. But if I can’t deliver, I’m never going to be a figurehead up there and just play for money. I could never do that. I’ve seen people do it, and it’s just frightful. I’m old, you know. In two years I’m 70, which is ridiculous. How did that happen to me?”

Motörhead released their latest album Aftershock in October 2013.

Random Cover Song: Ramones – “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.” (Motörhead)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

If Joey Ramone hadn’t died 13 years ago, today would have been his 63rd birthday. To celebrate the occasion, our random cover version comes from the Ramones, who performed a cover version of Motörhead‘s “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.”, which is dedicated to the iconic punk rock band. The original is taken from Motörhead’s 1991 album 1916, while the Ramones’ cover version appears on the Japanese edition of their 1995 final album ¡Adios Amigos!. You can listen to both versions of “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.” below.

Lemmy (Motörhead) has no plans to retire, says he’s working on solo album

Motörhead‘s lead singer and bassist Lemmy recently spoke to Revolver magazine about about the band’s performance at this year’s Wacken Open Air festival in Germany, which was cut short after six songs due to his health issues. In the interview, Lemmy states that he has no plans to retire and is instead finishing a solo album, explaining:

“I ain’t done yet with the music. After I get better, we’re gonna try to tour again, and if I can’t do that full-on, I want to do another album with Head Cat, and, of course, I want to do a couple more Motörhead records. But the next thing I’ve got coming out is my solo album, which is almost done. I still want to do a track with Skin before I put it out. There are two tracks with the Reverend Horton Heat, two with The Damned, a track with Dave Grohl, and a track with Joan Jett. Right now we’re thinking of calling it ‘False Teeth for the Deaf’. It’s all just great rock and roll, that’s the only way to describe it. Some of it is bluesy and some isn’t. It’s not Motörhead, but obviously there are elements in common.”

Motörhead released their latest album Aftershock last month, and will tour Europe next February to promote the album.
