Lemmy has left the building

Lemmy Kilmister, the iconic bass player for the metal band Motorhead, has died at age 70. I was never a Motorhead guy, but for me, Lemmy is the guy who tried to teach Sid Vicious to play bass -- and failed miserably. Obviously, this did not prevent Sid from becoming the bass player for The Sex Pistols, but that is a post for another time. Lemmy had quite a career, though, and anybody who gives a damn about rock and roll should note his passing. Having said that, see ya, Lemmy:

Yeah, it's a cover, but Motorhead did a lot of that, and I don't think Lemmy would be insulted.
