A Couple of Words About Lemmy

Vintage Hawkwind, "Silver Machine" (1972), below the fold. Johnny Rotten said if not for this song, there would not have been a Sex Pistols. Interesting, because this "proto-punk sound" is from the band that pretty much invented space rock.

Then Lemmy went on to define heavy metal and its subculture and influenced everything that came from that.

Space rock, punk rock, heavy metal, speed metal, thrash... Lemmy had a hand in all of all that. He was the nexus.

May he rest in peace.
