Only real rockstar I ever met. Got to interview him twice, and liked him! Have lots of stories and even bits of un-transcribed interview somewhere. I have nothing much to say right now, but one must say SOMETHING. Mind you, I'm not particularly sad, since he got to live on his own terms way longer than most folks - but I will direct people who don't know it to his first album as singer/ songwriter, pre-Hawkwind - led by a guy named Sam Gopal, but Lemmy wrote the lyrics and sang them, so, uh, he deserves a bit of credit! RIP, Lemmy, thanks for having been generous and patient and so willing to engage with my sometimes awkward questions. Much respect.
