Several months before his passing in 2015, Lemmy Kilmister linked up with guitarist Chris Declercq for a gritty blues-rock anthem called "We Are the Ones." The track, which features bass and vocals from the Motörhead legend, would ultimately mark his final recording as a solo artist. Over two years later, Declercq has finally unveiled the final version of "We Are the Ones"; in addition to Kilmister, the track, which is available now via iTunes and Spotify, includes an appearance by former A Perfect Circle drummer Josh Freese. Scroll down to check out a documentary short detailing how "We Are the Ones" came to be.
Declercq met Kilmister in 2005 when he approached the heavy-metal legend at his preferred watering hole, the legendary Rainbow Bar and Grill; the former slipped the later a demo, and the two became friends. Declercq honored the Motörhead figurehead in a heartfelt statement to Rolling Stone, who premiered the track. "You opened a door no one else wanted to open for me," he writes. "You allowed me to share precious moments with you as a composer, musician and friend. By helping me, you showed that you were the most generous, humble and honest man. I am honoring your gift every day and you are forever in my heart."
