Kind of surprised no one has said anything about these two legends who passed this month. Though I wasn't in to STP so much I did like them in general and their style. Motorhead was definitely more my style, both will be missed in the music world.

Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister (24 December 1945 – 28 December 2015) was an English musician, singer, and songwriter who founded and fronted the rock band Motörhead. His music was a distinctive part of the heavy metal genre. Legendary Motörhead frontman and bassist died following a short battle with cancer, his bandmates have announced. He was 70.

Motörhead's success peaked in 1980 and 1981 and included the hit single "Ace of Spades". Lemmy continued to record and tour regularly with Motörhead until his death. On 28 December 2015, four days after his 70th birthday, Lemmy died at his home in Los Angeles at 16:00 PST, from an "extremely aggressive cancer". Motörhead announced his death on their official Facebook page later that day. According to the band, his cancer had only been diagnosed two days prior to his death.

In video games
He was the main character in the 16-bit video game "Motörhead", released for the Commodore Amiga and Atari ST in 1992.

Lemmy appeared as an unlockable character in the 2009 game Guitar Hero: Metallica.

He also provided his voice for the 2009 video game Brütal Legend, voicing the Kill Master, a character designed and based on his surname and likeness.

Scott Richard Weiland was an American musician, singer and songwriter. During a career spanning three decades, Weiland was best known as the lead singer for the band Stone Temple Pilots. he died of an accidental overdose of alcohol and drugs, the Hennepin County (Minnesota). The Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman died December 3 while on tour with his band the Wildabouts. He was 48.
