Chuck Billy (TESTAMENT), Alex Skolnick (TESTAMENT), Rudy Sarzo (QUIET RIOT, OZZY OSBOURNE) and Mikkey Dee (MOTÖRHEAD) paid tribute to iconic MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister by performing the classic MOTÖRHEAD song "Ace Of Spades" on Sunday, May 15 at the first annual Vegas Rocks! Hair Metal Awards at the Casablanca Event Center At Eastside Cannery Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Video footage of their rendition can be seen below.

Vegas Rocks! Hair Metal Awards featured a special performance at the end of the show by TWISTED SISTER, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year with the release of the acclaimed documentary "We Are Twisted F***ing Sister!", a three-CD live set, the release of a memorial concert to their fallen brother A.J. Pero, and a farewell tour titled "40 & F*ck It!"

SCORPIONS made an appearance at the event to receive the "Classic Rock Outstanding Lifetime Achievement" award. In addition, German metal queen Doro Pesch was presented with the "Metal Goddess" award. Other artists that appeared and were honored/featured included QUIET RIOT, WINGER and ANGEL (full original lineup).

Lemmy, who celebrated his 70th birthday on Christmas Eve (December 24), learned two days later, on December 26, that he was afflicted with an aggressive form of cancer. He died two days later, on December 28, at his home in Los Angeles.
