After battling multiple health issues over the course of the past year, Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has passed away according to reports. He was 70. The rocker, known most notably as the former roadie for Jimi Hendrix before turning into a rock God in the UK had been dealing with multiple illnesses that forced the cancellation of several Motorhead dates in the the past few months. There was the infamous stop in Austin a few months ago which the legendary frontman ended a performance in Austin three songs in, citing that he couldn’t finish.

Motorhead was celebrating its 40th year as a band, becoming fixtures on most classic rock stations with hit singles such as “Ace Of Spades”, “God Save The Queen” and also crossing over into pro wrestling with two themes for Triple H, “Time To Play The Game” and “Bow Down To The King”.

No further information has been made available about Lemmy’s death.
