Following the news of Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister of Motörhead passing, drummer Mikkey Dee has given an interview with Swedish newspaper Expressen, saying that “Motörhead is over, of course. Lemmy was Motörhead. But the band will live on in the memories of many.”
He continued to put a definitive end to the band, reflecting on the final months of their life as a band:
“We will not be doing any more tours or anything. And there will not be any more records. But the fire survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone.”
Speaking of their final tour of Europe:
“He was terribly gaunt,” “He spent all his energy on stage and afterwards he was very, very tired. It’s incredible that he could even play, that he could finish the Europe tour. It was only 20 days ago. Unbelievable.”
“It feels fantastic that we were able to complete the tour with [Lemmy], “It’s heartening that we didn’t cancel because of Lemmy.
“I’m incredibly grateful over the years we’ve had, and that we had such a good time together.”
The band had toured extensively this year, promoting the August release of their latest album Bad Magic (UDR).
