Lemmy Kilmister – Iron Men of Rock

Lemmy Kilmister
Liz Ramanand, Loudwire

Most know Lemmy Kilmister for his time with Motorhead, but the singer has been carrying the hard rocking torch for much of the rock and roll era. As a teenager influenced by the Beatles, young Lemmy rocked in such pre-fame bands as The Rainmakers, the Motown Sect and eventually The Rockin’ Vickers, a group that earned him his first record deal back in 1965.

In 1971, Lemmy joined Hawkwind and the basis of his heavy roots really began to take shape. However, an arrest in 1975 on drug possession charges led to his ousting from the band and later that year Motorhead came to fruition. Now in his 60s, Lemmy is rocking as hard as ever and Motorhead remains a favorite on the concert circuit.
