Lemmy of Motorhead @ London’s Crobar

@myMotorhead #rememberingLemmy #rockbar #crobar #london #AXSofSPADES

My image is of agony, my servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousands years of misery, of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called religion, sadistic, sacred whore.

Lemmy died a year ago today. Four days ago (on his birthday) I watched one of his final performances on AXS TV. I cried.

Of course, he’s looked liked he’s been on his last leg for decades, even when I last saw him (on the Orgasmatron tour early in 1987). However, it should have been plain to anyone who was at one of these last shows, or who saw the video before he died, that he didn’t have more than weeks or months in November of 2015.

Today’s photo comes from after his death. I took this pic this past summer when I was at a rock ‘n roll bar in London. Great place, BTW. I meet a friendly chap at Crobar, who was from across the Thames, who paid for all of my drinks.
