Lemmy The MovieJan 28th, 2010
The long awaited documentary about the private and public life of the rock legend Lemmy Kilmister will give you a deep insight into his life and will be shown the first time at the South By South West Festival (SXSW) in Austin.
Director Greg Olliver and producer Wes Orshoski captured the life of the singer and bass player for almost three years. Beginning with a step in his private rooms in his home near Hollywood to hockey arenas in Scandinavia and Russia. So the fans get the closest view into his life ever. Of course the documentary will be blunt with gigs of his high profile friends of Slash, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Dave Grohl, Billy Bob Thornton and pro wrestler Triple H.
Lemmy’s comment to the coming release: ‘Unbelievable! Watch how Lemmy breathes! Watch how he manages to move his fingers independently! And the singing and dancing! Great gifts!’
Eulogized as the godfather of heavy metal, the 64-year-old Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister established as the living legend of rock and roll in the last 40 years. After a short liaison with the popular mersey beat band ‘The Rockin Vickers’, the influetal psychedelic rock band ‘Hawkwind’ and even as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix, Lemmy founded Motörhead in 1975.
Metal classics like ‘Overkill’, ‘Ace Of Spades’ and also ‘Bomber’ did not only write history but by the means of a fusion of punk, metal and rock the Grammy Award winners Motörhead had a quite big influence on bands like Metallica, Guns N’Roses and Nirvana.
Ex-Nirvana drummer and front singer of Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl, comes to the point: ‘If someone really deserves to be admitted to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, then blimey it’s Lemmy!’
