Lemmy Kilmister Motörhead Tribute T-Shirt
Lemmy Kilmister Motörhead Tribute T-Shirt. I’ve been a big Motörhead fan since i have been a teenager and had the honor to meet Lemmy a few times when he played in my hometown. Lemmy was one of the very few Rockstars who took his time to have a chat with stagehands, technicians and local crew people. To me, Motörhead was the missing link between the Punk- and Rockbands i have been listening to at that time.
As i always wondered what the story behind Lemmy’s “National Square Dance” convention Shirt might be and never found out. But i thought it would at least make a great “Lemmy Tribute T-Shirt” and maybe someone will someday reveal the secret why he loved wearing that shirt so much.
About Lemmy Kilmister aka Ian Fraser
Ian Fraser Kilmister (24 December 1945 – 28 December 2015), better known as Lemmy, was an English musician, singer, and songwriter who founded and fronted the rock band Motörhead. His music was one of the foundations of the heavy metal genre. He was known for his appearance (including his friendly mutton chops), his distinctive gravelly voice and distinctive bass playing style.
Alongside his music career, he also had many minor roles in film and television. Lemmy was born in Stoke-on-Trent and grew up in North Wales. He was influenced by rock and roll and the early Beatles, which led to him playing in several rock groups in the 1960s, including the Rockin’ Vickers. He worked as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix and the Nice, before joining the space rock band Hawkwind in 1971, singing lead on their hit “Silver Machine”.
After being fired from Hawkwind for drug possession, he founded Motörhead as lead singer, bassist, songwriter and frontman. Motörhead’s success peaked in 1980 and 1981 and included the hit single “Ace of Spades” and the top charting live album No Sleep ’til Hammersmith. Lemmy continued to record and tour regularly with Motörhead until his death in December 2015 in Los Angeles, where he had lived since 1990. (Source: Wikipedia)
