MICHAEL MONROE Receives Bullet Containing Late MOTÖRHEAD Leader LEMMY's Ashes

Before his death on December 28, 2015, late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister asked that his ashes be put in bullets and given to his closest friends. Among recipients of this special gift are Judas Priest's Rob Halford, Doro Pesch, former Headbanger’s Ball host Riki Rachtman, and Ugly Kid Joe singer Whitfield Crane.

Former Hanoi Rocks frontman, Michael Monroe, has also received a bullet, and shared the news via social media, writing: "I just received an extremely special and touching gift - a bullet which has part of Lemmys’s ashes inside it. Lemmy is in the room with us tonight!"

Monroe released I Live Too Fast To Die Young, his new slice of raw rock ‘n’ roll heaven, on June 10 via Silver Lining Music. Order the album here.
