It’s been one year since we lost Lemmy Kilmister, the mutton-chopped hard rock icon who fronted Motörhead with a bass in his hands. Lemmy passed away on Dec. 28, 2015, shortly after his 70th birthday, but the memory of his loss is still fresh in the mind of his friend, German metal queen Doro Pesch.
In honor of yesterday’s anniversary of his passing, Pesch released a video for a song the two of them recorded back in 2012 called “It Still Hurts.” (SEE BELOW.) It features a montage of photos and video of the two of them, including clips of them performing the song.
Along with the video, Doro also shared her feelings about Lemmy’s death via her Facebook page:
“Today is exactly one year since the Rock & Roll world lost Lemmy Kilmister, one of it’s greatest ever – and one of my best and most beloved friends. One year…and we miss Lemmy so much. The wish to honor him and his remembrance day with a video, showing some beautiful moments, came from deep within our hearts. And here it is: In Memoriam – Lemmy, one of the greatest heroes in Rock! It still hurts… R.I.P., my dear friend Lemmy – we love you! Doro.”
Formerly a vocalist and frontwoman for the German metal group Warlock, Pesch now leads her own band Doro, which also features keyboardist Harrison Young, guitarists Bas Maas and Lucas Princiotta, bassist Nick Douglas and drummer Johnny Dee.
