Well we made it through another year not worse for wear.
As a club we have had some set backs as a club but the Idea of a haven for Metal Heads still burns in my heart and soul. I will continue until I take my last breath I can promise you this my friends and family.
We all have moments where you look to the sky and ask why am I here? what can I do to help the people see? why things changing so fast?
I have often heard life has a plan for all of us is like a freeway we all travel together at the same time.
At some point people along the way will take an off ramp. this means we lose friends, family and our Idols to the off ramp not of their choosing. be it a new life path even death.
With this let me acknowledge the passing of our Uncle Lemmy Kilmister
This is a man can came from nothing and went on to becoming an icon for the worlds youth for over 40 years.
The ideals and beliefs we hold to being a Metal Head were paved by you Uncle Lemmy.
You stood up adversity with a Cigarette in your mouth, a Jack and Coke in one hand and a middle finger in the other for anyone telling you it can’t be done.
You are an inspiration to all of us and you carried the fuck you flag with pride.
You were a Legend in life and have become a God among insets in Death.
You lived life to it fullest and from the quotes below I know you meant it
“If I have to die and be on my deathbed regretting decisions I made, I’m not interested in that.”
“Death is an inevitability, isn’t it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don’t worry about it. I’m ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn’t complain. It’s been good.”
In parting I would like to say you were an inspiration to us all.
You set a pace and we all followed it.
I am extremely grateful for the gift of music you left us your words of wisdom be it from thoughts from you lips or from song.
Ill always look to your corner in the patio at the Rainbow when ever I visit.
And will always remember how humble you were at all times.
