It has been 4 years since Lemmy handed away, and a bunch of his greatest followers and brothers in heavy steel are revisiting one among their hardest-rocking moments onstage with their good friend and hero.
The Mötörhead bassist and frontman, born Ian Fraser Kilmister, died on Dec. 28, 2015 following a short and brutal battle with most cancers. He was each an inspiration and collaborator of Metallica’s: they wrote “Homicide One” off 2016’s Hardwired… To Self-Destruct as a tribute to Lemmy and have lined Mötörhead cuts previously, and had joined him onstage in 2009 to roar by “Injury Case” and “Too Late.”
Metallica shared footage of this efficiency on Saturday (Dec. 28) to mark the anniversary of his passing, and their adoration of Lemmy is totally current and accounted for within the clip. James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett’s pleasure is obvious within the broad grins plastered on their faces all through their 9-minute spell with Lemmy, and Robert Trujillo playfully engages in a bass-off at one level.
