Music transcends many cultures, and walks of life all across the world. In the case of Motorhead’s “Lemmy” Kilmister that is even more true. Montreal Canadiens goalie Ben Scrivens decided to let Lemmy live on through his hockey mask.
“He’s a huge influence on not just me, but a lot of the bands that I listen to and a lot of the type of music that I listen to,” Scrivens tells NHL.com. “For me, he’s probably the epitome of heavy metal and rock music in terms of not just his music, but his attitude, his persona, his look. He’s an ugly guy, he’s got a gruff, ugly singing voice. He says what he thinks all the time, he’s swearing all the time, and it wasn’t an act. I think that’s the thing that came across from him, nothing was for show. You knew that when he went home and talked to his kid he was probably the exact same way.”
Safe to say that even a hockey player can be influenced by Lemmy. Read the full story courtesy of Loudwire here.
