Motörhead guitarist Larry Wallis dead at 70

Larry Wallis, a founding member of British heavy metal band Motörhead, died Thursday.

No cause of death was revealed for the 70-year-old guitarist.

Wallis played on the Motörhead album “On Parole,” which was shelved for four years until the band gained prominence in the late 1970s.

Although recorded in 1975, the LP became the band’s fourth album when it was released in 1979.

Despite leaving the group in 1976, was cited as co-writer on one of the album’s tracks.

Motörhead, which has sold 15 million albums worldwide, was led by singer-bassist Lemmy Kilmister until his death in 2015.
