Lemmy Kilmister death

Lemmy Kilmister unfortunately died in 2015 at his home in Los Angeles, California, on December 28, at the age of 70. He died due to aggressive prostate cancer, cardiac arrhythmia and heart failure. The vocalist had been suffering from diabetes and other health problems for several years.

Guitarist Phil Campbell talked about Lemmy final years in an interview, saying:

“Towards the last couple of years, Lem wasn’t quite himself. He just wanted to carry on. You could see Lemmy aging a little bit more. ’Cause he was a fair amount older than the rest of us.

“But he was doing fine – he was playing fine. We just carried on. We kind of slowed it down a little bit, but it was still full-on touring compared to what other bands do. Us slowing down was just like full-on touring for many other bands.
