Rock & Rap Confidential posted the following on the net:

In its four decade career, Motorhead left an indelible mark on heavy metal, influencing the likes of Metallica and countless others. Many people dismiss heavy metal, and those who play it and listen to it, as mindless and meaningless. Read the following words by Lemmy, once a roadie for Jimi Hendrix, and see what you think.
 
“I am not, nor have I ever been, a racist. Nor should you be. How can you hate a race? Can you not, with your brain (which seems to be inter-racially supplied) distinguish between people who are okay and people who are assholes? Politicians foster racism - it keeps us fighting each other, and that keeps us from throwing them out of office. Vietnam - there’s a thing - blacks and whites, and Japanese and Vietnamese, and Irish and Indians - fighting together. For the wrong cause, though no less bravely. Do you think we could give bravery a fucking rest? Except in the case of a fire, or a woman and child trapped in Oklahoma City? Being scared of people makes you kill them. We got probes in space that go to the stars, and we might go soon, ourselves. What are we going to take with us? Hate? WORK AGAINST IT. Hasta la vista, motherfuckers.” - from Lemmy’s September 1995 magazine column in RIP.
 
Hasta la vista, Lemmy.

Filmmaker Penelope Spheeris remembers Lemmy (the group was featured in her 1988 documentary, The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years.

Lemmy was totally “what you see is what you get.” He laughed when we asked if he wanted make-up. You never had to wonder, “Is he telling the truth?” He brought the term “no BS” to new heights…

There were uncomfortable moments because he liked to challenge me, to push things to the limit. Lemmy was the epitome of confidence and if I didn’t keep my confidence, I knew he would go in for the kill. Loved that. Kept me on my toes… He had no filters, just so direct and honest, always had a nasty rock n’ roll edge, even if it might offend. In a way, that was his charm…

I don’t think it usually occurs to people that Lemmy was off the charts intelligent. Smart enough to know that it would be stupid to be jealous and that interpreting the rip-offs as a compliment was so much the higher road to travel. He was evolved and brilliant in many ways. Not only was his music unique — but in my humble opinion, there’s no other band remotely similar to Motörhead. His ‘look’ or ’style’ was totally unique and original for decades, never went ‘out of style.’ Kind of a rock n’ roll military, Tex-Mex, freaky combo. Genius, sexy and timeless…

I found him more blunt and honest than ANYONE I’ve ever talked to in my life… or interviewed. This dude did not mess around! - Billboard
