Dave Grohl and The Hollywood Vampires remember Motorhead’s Lemmy at the Grammys

The rock supergroup including Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry performed 'Ace Of Spades'

Dave Grohl and The Hollywood Vampires have remembered Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister at this year’s Grammys.

Foo Fighters leader Grohl introduced the rock supergroup, which features Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry, by talking about the late rock icon.

“A lot of us play rock’n’roll, but not a lot of us are rock’n’roll,” Grohl said. “Lemmy was rock’n’roll. He was a rebel and an outsider. He was a one of a kind and a way of life. He was Motorhead.”

Grohl continued: “He was a legend and I was proud to call him my friend. I have an ‘Ace Of Spades’ tattoo, but the truth is that Lemmy left us mark on me a long, long time ago. As Lemmy told us in the song ‘Ace Of Spades’, the pleasure is to play. I’d like to thank Lemmy and the late Phil ‘Philthy Animal’ Taylor for their music and everything it meant for Motorhead.”

The Hollywood Vampires then took to the stage to play one of their own songs, before segueing into a cover of ‘Ace Of Spades’.
