‘In heaven unseen and hell unknown/This is a lie’
you know anybody who isn’t down with the tee isn’t down with Motorhead and is an asshole
The endline of the ad says ‘Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister 1945-2015’ … ‘We raise our glasses to you.’
‘We want you ALL to be a part of this memorial service. ‘So wherever you are, PLEASE get together and watch with fellow Motörheadbangers and friends
With a lifestyle that would have killed an elephant a long time ago, a heavy diet of cigarettes, whiskey and drugs, Lemmy was the incarnation of toughness, a guy ‘who would survive the cockroaches after a nuclear war’
You win some, you lose some and Lemmy won enough
Imagine what you think a Motorhead concert is like, that is what it was Saturday night at MSG:
At this time, very little is known about the circumstances of his death but it doesn’t seem to be a hoax.
‘Those people are so dumb. What for? Do you think it’s gonna be a heroic thing to kill innocent people? Assholes. Cowards.’
If the French government said, we are cancelling all concerts (nyc did nothing of the sort by the way, on 9-12 I went to work in the day and went out that night), fine. But if they didn’t both Motorhead and Foo have a responsibility to play.
Ace Of Spades – Motorhead – With the great Phil Taylor dead, it is as good as any a reason to return to the scene of his greatest moments, a hammer and lethal amphetamine fueled head banger – A+
As a result of the so-called loudness wars, mainstream pop releases are being pushed onto CD and into mp3 files at such high levels they’re technically much ‘hotter’ than some of the loudest acts in history, in an attempt to make them stand out from the competition
After the British Invasion took America by storm in 1964, U.S. radio listeners long remained fascinated with U.K. musicians, who often were simply updating the Delta and Chicago blues traditions with a better sense of style. The U.K. bands represented below range from the traditional hard rock and metal of The Who and Led Zeppelin to the more progressive rock styles of The Moody Blues and Pink Floyd
The whole thing about Motorhead is they are the most perfect, almost like Ramones perfect, of products: loud fast electric riffs; it is metal stripped bare of all pretension. And because of that Motorhead remain one of the most beloved bands of all times, welcome back Lemmy.
Lemmy and the boys formed in 1975, but struggled in their native U.K. until the Overkilland Bomber albums dented the album charts in 1979. The band released their signature punk meets metal anthem “Ace of Spades” in 1980 and it even went to #15 on the U.K. pop charts. Kilmister’s work as a rock ‘n’ roll icon and independent lawn killer is a never ending mission.
“People think of us only as a one dimensional metal band. That’s an insult to me. We have done a number of ballads that have been directly influenced by Graham Russell and that other guy – the cute, pudgy short bastard.”
It is already advertised as ‘the loudest boat in the world’, and it is supposed to hit the coasts of Miami, Key West and Cozumel this fall. No stop in Cuba? Because this black and white logo definitively looks like a Pirates ship with a skim-the-seven-seas potential
At age 68 most folk should be sitting on a porch but this guy is still drunk and disorderly despite pleas from pros and friends. With a hefty case of diabetes that he basically dismisses as intrusion
Considering Lemmy’s recent health issues this could well be heading to the memorabilia shelf. I cant imagine the band touring actively for much longer so perhaps board games are the wave of the future for them?
“Don’t worry – I’m not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever.”
When you Wish Upon A Star – Cliff Edwards – Disney’s finest music moment from one of their signature achievements, the sound of your conscience, yes, of course, but also the sound of our deepest wishes. All in a crickets chirp. Astounding – A+
Suffering From Success – DJ Khaled – When did everyone start whining in the world of hip hop? More of the same with Khaled plus Maybach Music – C
