Following metal legend Lemmy‘s death on Monday, Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee has said the band is finished. In an interview with Swedish publication Expressen, he said, “Motörhead is over, of course. Lemmy was Motörhead. But the band will live on in the memories of many.”

”We won’t be doing any more tours or anything,” he adds, going on to discuss the bassist and singer’s notorious indefatigability even in the face of illness. “And there won’t be any more records. But the brand survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone.”
