Biography

Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister (born Ian Fraiser Kilmister, December 24, 1945, also known as Ian Fraiser Willis and Lemmy the Lurch) is an English bass player and singer. He is known primarily as the founding member and leader of the heavy metal band Motörhead. He previously played in Hawkwind. His unmistakable appearance, with his facial totem moles, sideburn to moustache connection (now known universally as “The Lemmy”), and gravelly voice have made him a cult figure known well beyond the world of rock music.

Lemmy was born in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire and raised in Anglesey, Wales. His father, a clergyman, left the family when Lemmy was three months old; the experience helped to imbue a deep hatred of religion in Lemmy and this is reflected in a number of his songs.
