Last month, Lemmy‘s final solo recording was released nearly two years after his death. Approximately six months before his death, the metal icon collaborated with Chris Declercq on what would become his final solo recording, titled ‘We Are The Ones’.
In a statement given to the site, Declercq addressed Lemmy, saying: “You opened a door no one else wanted to open for me. You allowed me to share precious moments with you as a composer, musician, and friend. By helping me, you showed that you were the most generous, humble and honest man. I am honouring your gift every day and you are forever in my heart.”
