Tag: Lemmy Kilmister
It’s universally agreed amongst headbangers that Motörhead is responsible for some of the greatest all-time hard rock/heavy metal songs (“The Ace of Spades,” “Overkill,” etc.) and albums (‘Ace of Spades,’ ‘No Sleep ’til Hammersmith,‘ etc.) – not to mention featuring one of rock’s all-time great characters in their ranks, Lemmy Kilmister. As a result, Motörhead fans are always on the hunt for uncommon and rare items to complete their collection. And now, the group is offering a true treat for their fans, known as “The Motör-Bag.”
Available online via www.merchdirect.com/Motorhead, The Motör-Bag is limited to 4,000 copies worldwide, and is packed with exclusive items that you will not find anywhere else. Housed in a Motörhead messenger bag, inside you will find two double vinyl LPs of stunning Motörhead performances (in their entirety), recorded in New York and Manchester – that can only be found in the Motör-Bag package. Additionally, a laminate pass is included, and a piece of ‘The Wörld Is Yours‘ 2010/2011 stage backdrop, mounted and numbered.
Once the 4,000 copies are sold out, this one-of-a-kind Motörhead set will be gone, so order the ultimate live Motör-experience package NOW!

HeadCat (Lemmy, Slim Jim Phantom, Danny B. Harvey) to release Walk The Walk…Talk The Talk on July 5th
Members of Motörhead, The Stray Cats, and Lonesome Spurs team up for new HeadCat release!
LEMMY KILMISTER (Motörhead), SLIM JIM PHANTOM (The Stray Cats) and DANNY B. HARVEY (Rockats, 13 Cats, Lonesome Spurs), have teamed up in a high-energy, “take no prisoners” combo to remind the world how real rock ‘n roll is supposed to fuckin sound. HeadCat serves up a delicious melting pot with flavors of rockabilly, punk, blues and undeniable rock ‘n roll!
HeadCat was formed in 2000 after recording an Elvis Presley tribute special to which all band members contributed. Slim Jim Phantom (drums, percussion), was born in Brooklyn and listened to his parents’ jazz records. At the age of ten he took up the drums although he always says that the drums chose him. He is an exceptional drummer who cemented his place among rock royalty long time ago and inspires and excites audiences worldwide.
Danny B. Harvey (guitar, piano) is Texas born and also discovered his love for music very early. He started playing the guitar at the age of six and even got a full scholarship to study classical guitar. He developed a finger picking guitar style that’s very unique and based on his idols Merle Travis and Chet Atkins but also a result of his classical-technique education.
Lemmy Kilmister (vocals, bass, harmonica) was born and raised in England and started to play the guitar at the age of sixteen. With a laughing eye he always said that he only took the guitar to impress the girls. He is an autodidact and changed early to bass as he stated he wasn’t a good guitar player. After founding Motörhead in 1975 he knows the ups and downs in the business and has reached the status of an Icon all over the world.
The new HeadCat album ‘Walk The Walk…Talk The Talk’ is due to be released July 5th, 2011 through Niji Entertainment Group, the record label Wendy Dio and her and late husband Ronnie James Dio formed before his untimely passing.
Twelve fantastic songs for ‘Walk The Walk, Talk The Talk’ were chosen easily. HeadCat prepare to take over the airwaves with their first single ‘American Beat‘. ‘American Beat’ is a song written in the studio - Lemmy had the words and the rest came together very quickly. ‘I Ain’t Never‘ is one of the songs Lemmy really likes and Danny knew it – a real country, rockabilly number, full of love and ready to take you drifting away. ‘Let It Rock‘ is one of their favorite Chuck Berry tunes – The Stones did it a lot in their live show in the 70′s – HeadCat plays a different version. ‘Something Else’ is a classic Eddie Cochran – Lemmy came on stage with the Stray Cats and jammed on it at a show in the 90′s at Hammersmith Odeon so it came quite natural to take this on the record as well.
‘Walk The Walk…Talk The Talk‘ track listing confirmed as follows:
I Ain’t Never
Shaking All Over
Let It Rock
The Eagle Flies On Friday
Trying To Get To You
You Can’t Do That
It’ll Be Me

Hailed as a godfather of heavy metal, 64-year-old Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister has established himself as the living embodiment of rock and roll over the past four decades. After stints with popular Mersey beat band THE ROCKIN’ VICKERS and influential psychedelic rockers HAWKWIND, and even a brief time spent as a member of Jimi Hendrix‘s road crew, Lemmy formed MOTÖRHEAD in 1975.
Going on to record such influential metal classics as “Overkill“, “Ace of Spades” and “Bomber“, the Grammy Award-winning MOTÖRHEAD and Kilmister‘s fusion of punk and metal registered a major influence on such bands as METALLICA, GUNS N’ ROSES and NIRVANA.
2010 marks the 35th anniversary of the birth of MOTÖRHEAD, which features Kilmister, guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee.
