Nevertheless, earlier this year Lemmy told a reporter for the Guardian, “Apparently I am still indestructible.”

Many happy returns of the day!

I'm glad that the only way he's going to be easy is when he's KILLED BY DEATH.

He doesn't care about different ages, he's an open book with well thumbed pages!

Why is he still alive? Let's ask Harold Ramis.

Lemmy is the living embodiment of Rock & Roll. I don't think I could bear the thought of living in world that doesn't have Lemmy in it.

Yes, his continued existence against all odds does seem to signify the balance of something in the universe. I fear something terrible will happen should he ever perish. Mountains crumbling, lava pits opening under our feet, that sort of thing.

It's the orgone accumulator, duh. That thing is a Superman creator.

He was interviewed on the WTF podcast recently. He's sounding pretty rough.

I told my 15 year old son a while back that if you were to peel back all the layers of rock and roll: the mystery and mystique, the legends, the history... all of it, that I really think that at the heart of it all, you'd find Lemmy.

Happy birthday Lemmy, and thanks for all the ▓▓▓▓ rock and roll!

My ex-girlfriend of several years ago once cheated on me with Lemmy. This is easily the most metal thing I ever care to experience.

I bet you Lemmy has some fucking metal ass venereal diseases. You went to a doctor right?

They said they couldn't identify anything. I took that as good news at the time...

Was there a time this was not true?

I was given Motorhead's Overkill and Bomber for Christmas (I was allowed to open them early). But I suppose they were more to celebrate Lemmy's birthday, really.

Glad to see I can count on MetaFilter to post the Young Ones Motörhead spot.

There will inevitably come a day when Lemmy and Keef are no longer with us. It’s hard, and sad to imagine that world where the force of Rock is so weakened. Already it wavers with the passing of of all the Ramones.

Happy Birthday Lemmy!

My first (and probably most enduring) memory of Lemmy: Lemmie at it.

I had no idea who he was, and wouldn't for some time (even after I saw The Young Ones).
