I think photographers are hating me whenever they have to take a pic of me performing… as I never EVER stay in the same spot on stage for more than a fraction of a second.

And I make weird faces while I sing.

But hey, if I wouldn’t feel I literally NEED to frantically move with my own music because I am completely absorbed and possessed by it… it’d feel like I have a BIG problem.

“ Lemmy!
My bandmate. My friend. My brother.
There are no words to describe the emotions running through my mind at this point but I could write thousands and thousands of words of all we created and experienced together.
It has been a true honor and a privilege to play with you and share all this time brother.
I celebrate every moment we shared…you bastard. I know I’ll see you sometime in the future and maybe I’ll join your band again…but this time, lets go a bit slower buddy.
There is a big black hole here now that no one can ever fill. No one…
Later Lem “ - Mikkey Dee (Motörhead)
