By Mick Wall,Robert Neugarten

Lemmy is het definitieve verhaal van de voorman van Motörhead. Hij verkocht nooit voor geld zijn ziel aan de duivel, maar hield hem wel vlak bij zich in de buurt. Dit is zijn eerlijke, vaak grappige en soms ook zeer droevige levensverhaal.

Vervolgens werd hij renowned lid van de band Hawkwind. Met Lemmy als zanger scoorde Hawkwind een hit met ‘Silver Machine’. Na een tijdje werd hij uit de band gezet (‘omdat ik de verkeerde medicinal drugs gebruikte’) en begon zijn eigen band: Motörhead. De relaxation is geschiedenis.

Na een leven vol spijkerharde muziek, roken, drinken, medications en vrouwen overleed Lemmy eind 2015. Mick Wall heeft hem ontelbare malen geïnterviewd. Zoals Lemmy zelf zei: ‘Mick Wall is een van de weinige muziekjournalisten die kan schrijven en echt wat van rock weet. Ik kan uren met hem praten en dat doe ik ook, bad bastard.'
