Tributes continue to pour in:
Lost one of my best friends, Lemmy, today. He will be sadly missed. He was a warrior and a legend. I will see you on the other side.

Former Motörhead drummer Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor died at the age of 61 in November.
“Fast” Eddie Clarke, who becomes the last surviving member of the band’s most famous lineup, wrote on Facebook:
I have just been told that Lemmy has passed away in LA.
Like Phil, he was like a brother to me. I am devastated.
We did so much together, the three of us.
The world seems a really empty place right now.
I am having trouble finding the words…
He will live on in our hearts. R.I.P Lemmy!
Lemmy recently underwent surgery to have an implantable defibrillator placed in his chest 2 years ago. He’s also cancelled shows due to exhaustion and haematoma. The singer was 70 years old. Rest in peace, Lemmy.
