Founding member of the heavy metal band Motorhead, Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister received a diagnosis of an extremely aggressive type of cancer on Dec. 26, 2015, and he passed away two days later. [1] He was at home at the time of his death sitting in front of a video game from The Rainbow. He had just turned 70 on December 24th. [2]



The bassist/singer suffered from various health problems, including diabetes and heart arrhythmia, in addition to the cancer. [3] He was also deeply affected by the recent passing of the group's drummer,  Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor.
