    I first knew of Lem­my when I was at school and he was the hyp­not­ic bass play­er of HAWKWIND — they were amaz­ing.
    I remem­ber him at the Wind­sor Free fes­ti­val, he was real nice, I was at school. He was a friend­ly human being, I loved his music, I loved his vibe.

    Love­ly memo­r­i­al. Equal parts sad­ness and joy. Lem­my was a great exam­ple to work­ing class peo­ple all over: A civ­il, edu­cat­ed, free­man. Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n’ roll!
