LEMMY Pumpkins Arrive In Time For Halloween

October 29, 2016

A Welsh man is getting rave reviews from MOTÖRHEAD fans for his pumpkin carved with the likeness of the band's late frontman Lemmy Kilmister.

30-year-old civil servant Stefan Prosser, who began pumpkin carving in an attempt to stave off boredom, told Wales Online: "I'm a massive MOTÖRHEAD nut and it just seemed fitting to do it after Lemmy died in January.

"After it went on Facebook though, I had people getting in touch saying they'd forwarded the photo to other members in the group.

"I don't know whether [MOTÖRHEAD guitarist] Phil Campbell has seen it yet, but I hope he likes it when he does."

A photo of another Lemmy pumpkin (see below) was tweeted by a mortgage broker from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, who wrote that it was the creation of a "friend of mine's hubby." He added: "[It's] just incredible!"

Lemmy, who celebrated his 70th birthday last Christmas Eve (December 24),learned two days later that he was afflicted with an aggressive form of cancer. He died two days later, on December 28, at his home in Los Angeles.

The MOTÖRHEAD frontman had dealt with several health issues over the past few years, including heart trouble, forcing him to cut back on his famous smoking and Jack Daniels habits.

The band canceled a number of shows last year, although they did manage to complete one final European tour on December 11, 2015.

In a 2015 interview with Kerrang! magazine, Lemmy was asked how it makes him feel when people call him a legend. He responded: "As long as they don't believe it, that's alright." He continued: "Who wouldn’t want a hero somewhere in their lives? And it might as well be me, 'cause I don't take the piss out of them for it, and I don't laugh at them because of it." But he added, "I'm not a legend. I never thought of myself as being special in particular. Maybe I make brilliant music, but that's about it."
