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.
VH1 Classic's 'That Metal Show' starring Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson has just been picked up for its 10th season. The most successful metal show since the iconic 'Headbangers Ball,' 'That Metal Show' boasts an all-star lineup of guests for their 10th season, including Iron Maiden guitarist Adrian Smith, Metallica's Lars Ulrich and Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.
Legendary metal band Motörhead have just released a killer limited edition collectors item called 'Motör-Bag.' Limited to 4,000 copies worldwide, the Motör-Bag is a unique blend of rare pieces of Motörhead history, including two live albums on vinyl, a laminate pass and a piece of 'The Wörld Is Yours' 2010/2011 stage backdrop, mounted and numbered.
Yeah, yeah, we know it's Christmas Eve. But let's not lose sight of the fact that it's also a historic day in heavy metal history. It's Motorhead frontman/bassist Lemmy Kilmister's 66th birthday. It's not lost on us that this is the Lemster's 66(6th) year on earth. Let's take a moment out of our eggnog sipping, gift exchanging, cookie devouring, ugly sweater wearing day to celebrate some of the most important things that Lemmy, a true rock 'n' roll messiah, has taught us during his 66 years on earth. He is a bad ass and we'd like to remember some facts about Lemmy's life and career.
