Former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan was one of the crowd members at the Seattle area stop of the current Mayhem Festival tour. McKagan has a column at Seattle Weekly and took the opportunity to write about his Mayhem Fest experience.
With the Mayhem Festival under way this summer, each of the bands will get very familiar with the music of their cohorts. So we at Loudwire asked a number of the acts what songs from their peers on the bill that they feel are so genius that they wished it was part of their catalog. As you can see, the veteran acts are getting a lot of love.
Anyone who's ever been to a Motorhead show knows they're going to get a loud, gritty, rock show - mostly because Lemmy announced it at the beginning of each show - "We are Motorhead and we play Rock and Roll."
It's no secret that the guys of Motorhead love a good drink. After the success of the band's wine endeavor, Motorhead Shiraz, of which a quarter-million bottles have been sold, the trio are now offering fans the very first Motorhead beer, Bastards Lager.
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.
