Celebrating what would have been iconic MOTÖRHEAD leader Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister‘s 76th birthday this past December 24th, the official MOTÖRHEAD YouTube channel released the next in the “The Löst Tapes” series, a previously unreleased concert from Norwich UEA which was recorded on the “Snake Bite Love” tour in 1998. Listen below or at this location.

Lemmy died in December 2015 at the age of 70 shortly after learning he had been diagnosed with cancer. 

MOTÖRHEAD had to cancel a number of shows in 2015 because of Lemmy‘s poor health, although the band did manage to complete one final European tour a couple of weeks before his death. Lemmy had dealt with several health issues over the last few years of his life, including heart trouble, forcing him to cut back on his famous smoking habits.

In June 2020, it was announced that Lemmy will get the biopic treatment. The upcoming film, “Lemmy”, will be directed by Greg Olliver, who previously helmed the 2010 documentary of the same name, “Lemmy”.  It will follow Kilmister‘s life growing up in Stoke-on-Trent, becoming a roadie for Jimi Hendrix and a member of seminal psychedelic rock band HAWKWIND before forming MOTÖRHEAD.

A custom-made urn containing Lemmy‘s ashes is on permanent display in a columbarium at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood, California.
