A brief tribute to Lemmy

Lemmy Kilmister passed away a couple of days ago at the age of 70.......in case by some chance you
don't know, Lemmy was the psycho-bass player for Hawkwind and the (also) psycho bass player as well as vocalist/growler/screamer for Motorhead......now, I have previously done posts on BOTH of those great bands, I don't know what's left of them link-wise, but originally they were quite comprehensive......I don't like to repeat stuff TOO often, so I am going to tribute Lemmy with some stuff I think you folks may like the best.

From the Hawkwind era, I give you my supberb vinyl rip of the double-disc "Space Ritual Live", two incredible discs of spaced out/stoner/hard psych/spacy rock.......the version of "Brainstorm" with Lemmy's totally sick bass playing and out-there growling vocals would summarize his career if it could be done so simply.........PLEASE investigate this if you are unfamiliar......for Lemmy?

From the Motorhead era, I'm going to play it safe, because I know Brian wants to post the legendary "No Sleep Til Hammersmith", an absolutely stunning live record that should be in every household, so, while waiting for Brian's own tribute, I think I will give you the following Motorhead discs (previously posted):

Let's go with "Motorhead: Over the Top-The Rarities", which is loaded with total metal freak outs, such as "Train Kept a Rollin" and (Don't Let Em) Grind Ya Down", wonderful and rare recording, and I'll also toss up "Tear Ya Down", another Motorhead rarities collection......I have TONS of Motorhead, but I posted it all in the last year or two, and I know Brian is wanting to post his own tribute (including the fantastic "No Sleep", likely tomorrow), so this will give you a taste of the very best of Lemmy's fab career.

RIP Lemmy, you will be missed.....from someone whos has seen The Who, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and basically ANYONE you can name, I will say this without hesitation.....Motorhead, without arguement or discussion, was the LOUDEST.....the "best"? perhaps not.......but the "loudest?'.....without the sightest question.......and I give them full credit for that.

RIP Lemmy, as well as Hawkwind and Motorhead.....grat bands, great sounds, great tunes, grat flat out loud ass rock n roll.........from this corner at least, Lemmy, you will be missed tremendously, and I suspect from many other corners as well.

Love ya Bro.......rest in peace, we'll all be there eventually!
