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.
When the 2012 Mayhem Festival lineup was announced, it seemed to be lacking one of the largely rumored bands, Motorhead. While Slipknot, Slayer, and Anthrax were on the official roster, Motorhead was not, much to the dismay of metal fans everywhere. However, the festival did hold out the promise that a special guest would be announced later on and it was speculated that it would probably be Motorhead.
The 2012 Gigantour is well under way with a lineup of Megadeth, Motorhead, Lacuna Coil and Volbeat. Motorhead, out in support of their latest studio album ‘The World Is Yours,’ released in late 2010 still put on one of the loudest shows in the world and in a recent interview with SFWeekly, frontman Lemmy Kilmister checked in to talk about the tour and his thoughts on the Black Sabbath reunion.
