2013年大病初愈后, Lemmy 登上英国经典摇滚杂志封面,并在采访中说出他的人生态度:“这次生病后,所有人对我说,莱米,你应该戒烟。操XXXX,我就不喜欢别人告诉我应该干什么,不应该干什么,即便他们是对的。如果明天我死了,我无怨无悔。”



2015年12月28,摇滚乐传奇 MOTORHEAD (摩托头)乐队的灵魂人物 Lemmy 病逝,就在他70岁生日后的第四天。据乐队官方消息,Lemmy于 12月26日预感到自己死期将至,便不再出门,玩儿着他喜欢的电子游戏同家人度过最后一段时光。祝老爷子一路走好!



Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister ,1945年12月24日,圣诞前夜在英国斯塔福德小镇出生。3个月大时父母离异,10岁开始展示出他对于摇滚乐、女孩以及骑马的热爱,一生未变。今天“莱米”已经是一个时代的标志,一种摇滚精神的象征。



英国摇滚乐传奇 HAWKWIND 是最早一批摇滚乐队,71年的专辑《In Search of Space》 树立了“太空摇滚” 风格的标杆。而最著名的事件是1975年,乐队将一个叫 Lemmy 的小伙子开除,后来就有了伟大的 MOTORHEAD 乐队。



曾被问及如何看待死亡,Lemmy早已表态,“死亡无法避免,不是吗?等到了我的年龄也就更意识到这点。我不担心这个已经准备好了。所以当我干什么,就尽全力干到最好。如果明天死了,也没什么可抱怨的,挺好。”



2015年摩托头发行了第22张专辑《Bad Magic》,Lemmy的最后一张唱片。

Then we went to the parking garage to drive your BMW home and he was down there by himself with two studded suitcases and she asked him if he needed a ride home” haha – Mark RIP.

Lemmy语录:





——“时光流逝的同时让人变得愤世嫉俗,因了解越多,越多事就不能如你所愿”
——“金属有点儿象摇滚的野孩子…”
——“(选秀节目)就是个笑话。名声无法赢来,要去挣。不劳而获的名声给了你,也没法接牢…”
