I have said more than enough nasty things about Rolling Stone Magazine in the past year to last a lifetime (except, like U2, you can’t hate em enough) so it is almost scary to report that the Lemmy interview (it’s in the October 29th issue with Madonna on the cover) is really great.
Here is writer Mark Benilli on Moterhead song “Ace Of Spades”: “(“Ace Of Spade”‘s) proto-speed-metal tempo and enough card-table metaphors to make Kenny Rogers second-guess his man-hood. When the music cuts out a minute and 20 seconds into the (two-minute and forty second) song, and Lenny sing-speaks “You know I’m born to lose/and gamblin’s for fools/But that’s the way I like it, baby/I don’t wanna live forever,” it’s the greatest moment in what one could make a strong case for being the greatest metal song of all time”.
Now here’s the moral: MOTORHEAD ARE NOT IN THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME
