Today (28th December 2015) it is a very sad day in rock, we lost a true friend, someone who since 1979 was part of our lives and our history as a band.
We played together, recorded and toured together but most and foremost we had the opportunity to know Lemmy's true and kind heart! RIP Lem, we have no words to express how much we will miss you! R.I.P
