‘Ace Of Space’ Is The Ultimate Lemmy & Bowie Tribute Mashup

Written by Tom Williams on January 16, 2016

The tragic loss of David Bowie and Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister within the space of a few weeks has seen an outpouring of tributes, but few have managed to perfectly combine both musicians’ talents in a truly creative way, until now.

YouTuber Andy Rehfeldt, who was behind that death metal remake of a Grease classic and that metal version of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, has turned his talents to Lemmy and Bowie, expertly mashing up Motörhead’s Ace Of Spades and Bowie’s Space Oddity to create Ace Of Space.

Rehfeldt’s effort (below) manages to blend Lemmy and Bowie’s contrasting styles into a truly invigorating rock track, all while giving us a glimpse of the kind of sweet, sweet music the pair might be making together in some other world.

Individually, Lemmy and Bowie’s deaths have inspired a range of interesting and heartfelt tributes from all over the world.

Lemmy, for instance, has seen the ‘Jack & Coke’ renamed in his honour, a petition launched to name a new heavy metal element “Lemmium”, and even the creation of his own Grand Theft Auto V mod.

Bowie, on the other hand, has inspired some top-notch covers of his music from Sarah Blasko and Gang Of Youths, but also a pretty horrible one from Smash Mouth, who are still a thing.

Experience the brilliance that is Ace Of Space below, and pay tribute to two music icons who have left us too soon.
