Fossil worm named after Lemmy
Dr, Mats E. Eriksson, Associate Professor of Paleontology - Department of Geology at Lund University in Lund, Sweden and longtime fan of MOTORHEAD recently named a fossil after Lemmy Kilmister.
The fossil with which Lemmy will share a name is a c. 428 million year old jaw of an extinct, marine polychaete annelid worm found in the Silurian strata of Gotland, Sweden. Its scientific name is Kalloprion Kilmisteri. "Speaking about Lemmy and the newly named fossil, Eriksson states "not only is he (Lemmy Kilmister) already a legend in the music business but his name will have a permanent record in Science."
