The metal world pays tribute to Leonard Nimoy

Posted by on February 27, 2015

Leonard Nimoy, who many knew simply as Mr. Spock from the Star Trek TV and film series died at the age of 83 earlier today (27). Nimoy announced this past year that he suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy confirmed her husband passed due to end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Last year Nimoy tweeted, “I quit smoking 30 years ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP.”

Other than being Spock in hje Star Trek series, Leonard Nimoy directed Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and Three Men And A Baby. Nimoy was a musician and released five albums starting with his debut in 1967 Mr Spock’s Music From Outer Space. The reach of Star Trek, which began in 1966, was expansive, and Nimoy’s character was perhaps the most iconic of the cast. Needless to say, Nimoy inspired many people, including rock and metal musicians. Man of them took to Twitter to show their condolences:
