Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead dies at the age of 70 on the 28th of December after a short struggle with an aggressive cancer.

The band posted the news on their official Facebook page:

R.I.P. Lemmy, the guy who still rocked his life to the max despite everything. The music of Motörhead will remain forever thrashing our lives. Horns up & Heads down. Long live Rock – thank you LEMMY.

What will happen to Motörhead?
Will there be a plan B for the band or will they disband?

While no official statement has been issued by the band yet, Mikkey Dee, Motörhead’s drummer, hinted in an interview with the Swedish newspaper Expressen that this is the end concerning the band in terms of making music and touring.

Lemmy was MOTÖRHEAD. But the band will live on in the memories of many. We will not be doing any more tours or anything. And there will not be any more records. But the fire survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone. He was terribly gaunt, He spent all his energy on stage and afterwards he was very, very tired. It’s incredible that he could even play, that he could finish the Europe tour. It was only 20 days ago. Unbelievable.
It feels fantastic that we were able to complete the tour. It’s heartening that we didn’t cancel because of Lemmy. I’m incredibly grateful over the years we’ve had, and that we had such a good time together.

We will keep you updated. Stay tuned.
