Heavy metal legend Lemmy passed away today only 48 hours after learning he had cancer. He was 70.
Born Ian Fraser Kilmister, Lemmy is best known as the lead singer of Motorhead. He founded the group in 1975.
I learned of Lemmy’s death on Twitter while watching WWE Raw. Lemmy may be best known for being the voice behind the theme entrances for WWE superstar and executive Triple H.
Given the program is live I wonder if the WWE announce crew will mention Lemmy’s passing.
In any case, have a listen to “The Game” as performed by Motorhead at Wrestlemania 21 in 2005.
UPDATE: WWE announcer Michael Cole acknowledged Lemmy’s passing at 10:45 p.m. and a short video tribute followed.
