We can tell your music list's Steve. Not Metal!
No offense! This is one of the best heavy metal jams ever "The Ace of Spades"
Don't know much more from "Motohead"
Did hear the guy was in poor health, but WTF? like all the old rock stars they should have been dead years ago.
Cool thing was, Over Christmas, I heard Lemmy with Dave Grol and Billy ZZ Giibons do "Run Run Rudolph" cover. Excellent!
Check it out with the Christmas season still around.

Ian (Lemmy) did a lot more than Hawkwind and Motorhead, and wrote about half of the Ozzy 'no more tears' album. His book is really worthy of reading, he had an interesting outlook on life.
He grew to hate the 'Ace of Spades' , although probably the song that got him most attention.
I nearly bumped into him a few years ago backstage at Download festival, true heavy metal royalty.
He did well to make it to his 70's given his famous drinking, smoking and 'speed' habit. I suspect he may have known he was going for sometime and preferred to keep it private - the official version of events doesn't sound right to me.
