Lemmy: Rockers, Celebrities Remember Motorhead’s Frontman as ‘A Warrior and a Legend’

Despite his rough-around-the-edges reputation, Lemmy Kilmister, the frontman for heavy metal band Motorhead for 40 years, was clearly a beloved figure for many rock ‘n roll and other entertainment personalities.

Fellow heavy metal pioneer Ozzy Osbourne was among the first to memorialize him on Twitter, calling him “a warrior and a legend.”

Motley Crue’s Vince Neil also paid tribute to a fellow metalhead.

Aerosmith’s Joe Perry called him “a true rocker from beginning to end.”

Lemmy was a party legend at the Rainbow Room in Hollywood.

Film bizzers including Edgar Wright paid tribute.

Wrestlers Triple H and Chris Jericho were also fans.

Actress/musician Taylor Momsen called him “one of the gods.”
