Even though Lemmy Kilmister passed away in December, it’s safe to say his legend, and his memory will live on. Last Friday, at Dimebash, the annual tribute concert to late Pantera guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott, Foo Fighters front-man Dave Grohl put together a one-off supergroup of sorts to pay tribute to the Motorhead bassist.
Joining Grohl in on-stage were former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo, Pantera vocalist Phil Anselmo, and Metallica bassist Robert Trujilo. They rocked through a blistering version of Motorhead’s ‘Ace of Spades’ which you can view below.
Not the greatest quality video, but you get the idea. The concert comes two weeks after both Grohl and Trujilo spoke at Lemmy’s funeral service on January 9th.
Speaking of Kilmister, Grohl said “I think what everybody has always known or at least learned today is that Lemmy was not only that kind of… whiskey-drinking rock and roll star, but he had the biggest heart and set such a great example because he was so kind to everyone”. Touching words from one rock legend to another.
