This photo from the 2010 Revolver Golden Gods awards features Lemmy Kilmister onstage with Slash and Dave Grohl. Images like these are a welcome sight for music fans, who are still reeling after Lemmy’s untimely passing on Tuesday (mere days after doctors discovered an aggressive cancer). Immediately, Lemmy’s friends and fellow rock gods let loose an outpouring of tributes. Motorhead declared themselves done without their frontman, and Metallica’s Kirk Hammett wrote a letter about his idol.
Now Grohl steps up with a series of tributes (one of them ultimate), first on Twitter. The Foos spoke of broken hearts in the wake of Lemmy’s death.
Dave and Co. also posted a fitting message to Facebook: “We’ve lost a friend & legend. My heart is broken. RIP Lemmy. Born To Lose, Lived To Win.”
