This comes as no surprise given the death of the legend Lemmy yesterday. Motörhead have officially dissolved as a band. No more live shows, record releases, or anything. And this makes total sense given the band’s long and successful career over 4o years paired with Lemmy Kilmister’s irreplaceable status. It’s still, no doubt, sad to see them go.

The band’s legend of a drummer Mikkey Dee just confirmed this by stating the following while speaking with Expressen:

“Motörhead is over, of course. Lemmy was Motörhead. But the band will live on in the memories of many.

We won’t be doing any more tours or anything. And there won’t be any more records. But the brand survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone.

He was terribly gaunt, he spent all his energy on stage and afterwards he was very, very tired. It’s incredible that he could even play, that he could finish the Europe tour. It was only 20 days ago. Unbelievable.

It feels fantastic that we were able to complete the tour with him. It’s heartening that we didn’t cancel because of Lemmy. I’m incredibly grateful over the years we had, and that we had such a good time together.”
