'You have to think of the good times': Remembering Lemmy one year on

The year began with the world still reeling from losing one of metal’s greats, but Lemmy’s legacy shines bright

It’s been almost a year since that dreadful day: December 28, 2015. And while time is said to be the great healer, the death of Motörhead legend Lemmy Kilmister is no easier to deal with now than it was then. Of course, death comes to us all, and it was no secret that Lemmy had been ill, but to friends and fans alike it seemed as if he was somehow different, immortal. It’s hard to comprehend that there will never be another tour, another record, another midnight text with a terrible joke. The wound is still raw.
