The news broke earlier today that legendary Motorhead frontman and bass player Lemmy Kilmister has passed away at the age of 70 from an aggressive form of cancer. Geddy Lee addressed Lemmy's passing with the following message via the Rush Facebook page:

"So sorry to hear of the sudden passing of fellow Bass man, Lemmy...of Motörhead and Hawkwind before that. He was a true original....who lived to rock....RIP Lemmy!" - Geddy Lee

Before Lemmy formed Motorhead back in 1975, he was the bass player for space rock band Hawkwind. Rush played a few shows with Hawkwind back in late 1974 when Lemmy was still in the band.
