With Election Day taking place in the United States tomorrow (Nov. 6), Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney is getting exponentially more heated. As one of the few subjects that truly divides groups of human begins into two halves, politics constantly draws passionate statement from people of all backgrounds. One of those backgrounds happens to be playing bass and providing vocals for Motorhead, with the legendary Lemmy Kilmister offering his two cents on the election.
Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister defeated Anthrax's Scott Ian in the first round, and took out Metallica's James Hetfield in the quarterfinals of the President of Heavy Metal election. Fans of Lemmy have been coming out in droves to support their gravel-voiced hero, but in this next round, Lemmy has yet another maniacal fan base to defeat.
First up in the quarterfinal round of the President of Heavy Metal election is Metallica frontman James Hetfield vs. Motorhead metal god Lemmy Kilmister. Hetfield captured victory over Ministry's Al Jourgensen in Round 1, knocking the industrial legend off the map. With perhaps the most rabid following of any metal band, James Hetfield has the support to win it all, but will his followers show up at the polls?
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian surely has a mass of wisdom to bestow onto us. As a founding member of Anthrax, Ian has been laying down the law in metal for more than 30 years. And with the band's latest album, 'Worship Music,' being universally praised by critics and fans alike, Ian has proven that he has staying power in the metal universe. And his beard is really cool, too!
Lemmy Kilmister was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. He spoke all about his experience playing festivals, his Motorhead bandmates, this past summer’s Mayhem Festival, his adoration for fellow British band Skunk Anansie and much more. If you missed Jackie’s show, read the full interview with Lemmy Kilmister:
A day off on tour is something to be savored, just ask the artists that recently wrapped up the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. While the tour rolled into New England for their Aug. 3 date in Mansfield, Mass., many bands on the tour made the most of the day off before taking in the sights and sounds of Boston.
Lemmy Kilmister Chats With Full Metal Jackie
Motorhead frontman/bassist (and badass) Lemmy Kilmister isn't so much miffed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for virtually ignoring his legendary band and not inducting them into their hallowed halls despite the fact that they've been rocking since 1975. He's got an axe to grind with the powers-that-be over a bigger and more important matter. They lost his 'Ace of Spades' tour jacket after he loaned it to them for an exhibit. To quote the kids of 'South Park,' those bastards!
Motorhead frontman/bassist/badass Lemmy Kilmister, a rock 'n' roll outlaw and legend among mere mortals, is known for speaking his mind, albeit in a whiskey-ravaged, gravelly voice. That's just what the Lemster did in a recent chat with Artisan News Service, which polled fans for questions, selecting two to present to Lemmy for the 'Ask the Artist' segment. The first was about Lemmy's consumption of libations, while the other was about the possibility of reuniting with former members, drummer Phil Taylor and guitarist Eddie Clarke.
