He still casts an enormous shadow over the music world. Lemmy had just celebrated his life with a huge birthday party in his adopted home of Los Angeles in 2015 when he received a fatal diagnosis of prostate cancer along with cardiac arrhythmia and congestive heart failure. He passed just two days later. In the time since he passed away, there have been countless tributes, awards, stages at festivals cover songs,a statue at his favorite barThe Rainbow on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, and his signature drink, The Jack And Cokewas even renamed The Lemmy permanently. There have been many tributes to Lem and Motorhead and new things with Lemmy are still coming out all the time, such as his long lost duet with Ozzy on “Hellrazer” in 2021, new boxed sets, live albums, and hopefully one day, the Lemmy solo album that was in the works when he passed.
