Rock 'n' roll has lost a larger-than-life figure. Motörhead's frontman Lemmy Kilmister has died of cancer. Unlike most people, Lemmy didn't mellow with age. He never dropped his penchant for whiskey, drugs, loud music, or his defiant attitude.
He's a living rock legend. Forty years of rock 'n' roll have left their mark, but Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, the antichrist of rock, celebrated his 70th birthday on, of all days, Christmas Eve.
"Lemmy" Kilmister, the legendary frontman of heavy rock band Motörhead, has died at the age of 70. One of rock and roll's great survivors despite a hard-partying lifestyle, he inspired generations of fellow musicians.
Mention heavy metal, and it won't take long for the band Motörhead to enter the conversation. Fans of the band's recently deceased lead singer now want to name a chemical element after him.
For a century scientists thought the large carnivore Lemmysuchus was directly related to crocs of its time. But new research has concluded it was only a distant relative, thus needing its own name.
