A really terrible loss. I read he'd discovered he had cancer only TWO days
ago!? Fuck.

In any event, it's not entirely irrelevant to Killing Joke. I know a lot of
folks, likeme, actually really enjoyed hearing Killing Joke explore their
more "Motorhead" side this past decade, with Jaz's vocals often sometimes
in the past 15 years or so being compared to Lemmy's on tracks like
"Endgame" or "Implosion," which are almost like Motorhead cover songs.

In any event, Youth posted about him on Facebook. I wouldn't be surprised
if there was a viral influence that Lemmy and Motorhead exerted on KJ. In
fact, I'd say it's probable given how much metal stuff was always in the
wings with KJ's sound.
