Unfortunate news hit the wires on Monday: Lemmy Kilmister, front man of Motörhead and one of the most revered figures in rock history, has died at the age of 70.

The band confirmed the news in a Facebook post, adding that Lemmy died after a short battle with an ‘extremely aggressive’ form of cancer:

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.
HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT.
Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister
1945 -2015
Born to lose, lived to win.

Needless to say, Lemmy will be remembered forever. Rest in peace.
