RIP Lemmy


Last night's news of the death of Lemmy was a sad note for the UK rock scene. The frontman of Motorhead http://www.imotorhead.com/ 

had been the lead figure of the scene for generations. He was instrumental in the founding of another wonderful group called  #Girlschool   http://www.girlschool.co.uk/mainindex.htm

The two groups were similar and often toured together. Motorhead and Girlschool joined for one cd under the band name Headgirl  http://noisey.vice.com/blog/what-i-learned-about-style-from-mtorhead-and-girlschool-head-girl-please-dont-touch

 The older music lovers will recall Lemmy used to be the lead singer of another group called #Hawkwind, in his days before Motorhead. He was jailed in the US because the police thought he was carrying cocaine across the US/ Canadian border. Hawkwind is still going, but they are nowhere near as popular or influential as Motorhead are.
