Throwback: Happy 77th Birthday, Lemmy!

December is a busy month in music history:

This week has been so busy that I somehow managed to forget that Motörhead‘s founder, frontman — and overall badass — Lemmy Kilmister was born 77 years ago on December 24. We may have lost him seven years ago, but his influence on metal, punk and rock has remained as towering as ever.

Happy birthday, Lemmy! Happy birthday wherever you are!
