Triple H's moving tribute to Lemmy

WWE Executive Vice President Triple H has paid a moving tribute to his friend Lemmy Kilmister following the musician's death.

The legendary Motörhead rocker passed away on Monday (28.12.15), just two days after he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and Triple H - real name Paul Levesque - took to Twitter to remember his dear friend.

He wrote: "One life, lived your way, from the beginning, till the end. See you down the road my friend...Thank you for the gift of your sound."

He added: "Occasionally people come along in your life that you always want there... #RIPLemmy (sic)."

Triple H also retweeted a message from Entertainment Weekly writer Kyle Anderson which read: "Fave Lemmy memory: Once interviewed @TripleH, we were supposed to discuss The Chaperone but mostly talked about the greatness of Motörhead (sic)."

Lemmy has been a close friend of Triple H's, performing his entrance live at WrestleMania 17 and 21.

Motörhead also allowed 'Ace of Spades' to be used as the NXT Takeover: London theme song.

The legendary musician's death was confirmed on the group's Facebook page as they paid tribute to a "lovely, wonderful man".

The post on the social networking site read: "There is no easy way to say this...our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it's way down the street, with his family.

"We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness, there aren't words. We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please...play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy's music LOUD. (sic)"

The 'Ace of Spades' hitmakers also asked their fans to have a drink to remember Lemmy, whose real name was Ian Fraser Kilmister.

They continued: "Have a drink or few. Share stories. Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.

"HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT. Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister. 1945 -2015. Born to lose, lived to win. (sic)"
