RIP Lemmy

RIP Lemmy

Wie viele Techno-DJs machen gern auf harten Rock’n’Roller? Sehr viele. Aber gegen Lemmy Ian Fraser Kilmister aus Stoke-on-Trent UK sahen alle aus wie Alle Farben. Der an Heiligabend 1945 geborene Bassist und Sänger der Heavy-Metal-Band Motörhead, ist gestern in Los Angeles an Krebs gestorben. Zwei Tage vorher wurde der Krebs diagnostiziert. So schnell wie sein Leben gewesen ist mit Drogen, Alkohol, Frauen und Exzessen, so schnell kam auch der Tod. Unzählige Techno-Musiker haben heute auf sozialen Netzwerken ihre Trauer über den Tod von Lemmy geäußert. Warum? Rock’n’Roll ist doch etwas komplett anderes, oder? Nein – ist es nicht. Techno und Rock’n’Roll haben sehr viel gemeinsam – zumindest in der Wahrnehmung der Vorzeigeprotagonisten ‚unserer Szene‘. Aber wohl nur ein Techno-DJ war in der Lage, sich richtig mit Lemmy verbunden zu fühlen: Marc Spoon. Er hätte jetzt geweint. So wie wir auch, die wir Rock’n’Roll im Auto hören. Rest in peace Lemmy.

You know I’m born to lose

And gambling’s for fools

But that’s the way I like it, baby

I don’t wanna live forever

Danke an den Rolling Stone, die hier 10 großartige Zitate von Lemmy gesammelt haben:

„The only interesting thing about religion is how many people it’s slaughtered.“ – via Louder Than War

„Religion is stupid anyway. I mean, a virgin gets pregnant by a ghost! You would never get away with that in a divorce court, would you?“ – via Radio Metal

„Apparently people don’t like the truth, but I do like it; I like it because it upsets a lot of people. If you show them enough times that their arguments are bullshit, then maybe just once, one of them will say, ‚Oh! Wait a minute — I was wrong.‘ I live for that happening. Rare, I assure you.“ – via White Line Fever
„As you go through life’s rich tapestry, you realize that most people you meet aren’t fit to shine your shoes. It’s a sad fact, but it’s true. A good friend is someone who’d hide you if you were on the run for murder. How many of them do you know?“ – via The Independent

„I don’t understand people who believe that if you ignore something, it’ll go away. That’s completely wrong — if it’s ignored it gathers strength. Europe ignored Hitler for 20 years. As a result he slaughtered a quarter of the world!“ – via White Line Fever

„I don’t think it’s fair to be waving your dick around when people are minding their own business and might not want to see it.“ – via White Line Fever

„If you didn’t do anything that wasn’t good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous.“ – via The Independent
„If you’re going to be a fucking rock star, go be one. People don’t want to see the guy next door on stage; they want to see a being from another planet.“ – via the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

„People have forgotten that sex is fun. It’s the most fun you can have without laughing. People have forgotten that. It’s all deadly serious. AIDS. You can get gonorrhea from a blowjob. So what? That’s the risk you have to take. If you’re going to have sex, fuckin‘ have sex and be happy about it. Don’t be looking over your shoulder all the time. It ruins everything.“ – via Rolling Stone

 

„People just rip each other to shreds over the years. Nothing kills a relationship like commitment.“ – via Spin
