|Even at the time of its release, Bad Magic overshadowed by Lemmy's very obviously failing health. His PR team did their best to put on a good face for the previous two or three years, and it made the whole operation seem smarmy and dishonest—the opposite of what the man stood for. "Lemmy just needs to rest ... minor procedure ... back to full strength very soon ... better than ever." Bullshit! We all saw those sad videos from the last few months of Lemmy hanging on mic stand, walking with a cane, laboring for breath, forgetting which song he was singing. And so here is the final album, most of the music written by the other guys, Lemmy sounding hoarse and weak in places, rather than gruff and curmudgeonly, and this somehow highlighting the cliched nature of many songs. Lemmy had been singing about "shooting out all your lights" for decades, so why not have a song with that title?

|... and Motorizer as one of the band's less-inspired (and less-inspiring) albums. As the final statement from such a legendary band, it's hard to listen to, quite honestly. In the later part of his life, Lemmy underwent the same kind of transformation Ozzy did. There was Teddy Bear Ozzy, and there was Grandpa Lemmy. He went from being a straight-shooting outlaw to a crusty but lovable old man. When Rolling Stone profiled him in about 2008, it was hard not to see him as a bit of a relic, stuck in the past and almost kind of pathetic. We blamed those metal-hating snobs at Rolling Stone for drawing him that way, but secretly we wondered—is that how he seems to everyone who doesn't worship his music like we do? And are they maybe not 100% wrong? And what does it say about us that we idolize someone whose second-greatest claim to fame (and a very close second at that) was being an unapologetic, functioning alcoholic?
