Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister (born on 24 December 1945 in Burslem, Stoke on Trent, England), is an English rock musician. He is best known as the founding and sole constant member of the heavy metal band Motörhead. His appearance, including mutton chops (sideburn-moustache combination), and gravelly voice have made him a cult icon. Lemmy was placed 48th by Hit Parader on their list of the 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Singers of All Time list.[1]


Childhood and early life

Lemmy was born on Christmas Eve in 1945 in Burslem, Stoke on Trent, England.[2][3] When Lemmy was three months old, his father, an ex-Royal Air Force chaplain, separated from his mother. His mother and grandmother settled in Newcastle-under-Lyme then moved on to Madeley, Staffordshire.[4]
