Rock icon Ian Fraser 'Lemmy' Kilmister has died aged 70 years from an apparent aggressive cancer.

Probably best known as a musician, singer, songwriter, lead vocalist, bassist, principal songwriter, founder and member of the rock band Motorhead, before that Hawkwind (remember Silver Machine?) and going back even further 'The Head Cat' and 'Sam Gopal'.

Ace of Spades is probably the song that most of us would recognize.
