Now we've reached the end I thought it would be fitting to look back to the beginning , here is the full 15 minute John Peel session from a new band looking to make their breakthrough , John Peel was a godsend to new bands in the 70s and unsurprisingly he played his part in the Motorhead story.


Tracklist:
1. Louie Louie (0:15)
2. Keep Us On The Road (3:38)
3. Tear Ya Down (9:05)
4. I'll Be Your Sister

Here performing Iron horse, born to lose , recorded for a charity event also in 1978.

The first I heard of Motorhead was in the early 80's when Metallica was opening for them in Europe. It's been over 30 years and I still love their stuff.

Lemmy lived the life he wanted.

RIP

Did you see them play with Mettalica? that would have been beyond amazing.

I was going to book tickets for a local motorhead gig in the new year as I figured It might be the last chance I would have...

Before Motorhead there was Hawkwind. Lemmy is now riding his Silver Machine:



Rev high and fly high and please give them something else to listen to up there.... This one's to you

Hawkwind gave us a lot of good things.

Aside from hawkwind we got motorhead and also Micheal Moorcock and some truly great fantasy fiction.

Had a chance to see Motorhead at the First Avenue in Minneapolis back in 2002. Pure rawk. Loved his stuff with Hawkwind too. The dude was a force. A real battering ram.
Heard his favorite show cocktail was speed and acid. Brutal. He had recently switched from Jack and Coke to Vodka and OJ. Too little too late, I guess.

I read quite a few of Moorcock's books. Brilliant stuff, Conjunction of a thousand (or was it a million?) spheres. Elric. Nuff said methinks.

lemmy was awesome.

i dont know if a lot of people know this but he wrote 'mama im coming home'..of course ozzy recorded it.
lemmy said he made more money off that one song for ozzy than he has made of the entire motorhead catalogue.

that always bothered me....

Well thank cripes someone noted it here. Loved Lemmy. Even played Killed by Death at my wedding reception. A rock god. RIP. "R" means "rock" and I'm sure he will.

ETA: Even some older ones danced to it:

So sad. And influential beyond measure. After 30-plus years of Motörhead enjoyment I still fire it up here and there. I've been waiting for my brother's kids to get to an age where I can unleash it upon them and then take them to see the living legend. Guess I have to live with the fact that it won't happen. But the magic will live on forever.

Somewhere in Hell Satan is #ting his pants, because Lemmy's there to take charge.


Satan knew from the start that he would rue the day!!

RIP Lemmy.

Sadly Lemmys death has overidden the passing of another Rock God.....

STEVIE WRIGHT lead singer of the Easybeats died 2 days ago also......aged 68.

Well remembered for Friday on my Mind, Good Times, Show me the way to St Louis, in the 60s etc not to mention solo efforts of Evie and Blackeyed bruiser of the 70s.
The Easybeats were the grandaddy of ACDC. (Guitarist/writer was George Young, brother of the ACDC Youngs)

Sadly as the next few years pass, there will be 100s of these old F/Rockers dying....as there has been over the past years.

Maybe someone can start a Stevie Wright thread and embed some videos (I still dont know how you do it?).

Sorry dude...no disrespect. I'm 50 years old and I'm still into and playing metal. I don't know who Easybeats is but they could never outshine Lemmy
RIP Kilmister and thanks for the memories. I still remember seeing Motorhead on late night TV when I was about 12. Motorhead is/was so raw, so real it makes even the metal "legends" (Metalica, Anthrax, etc.) sound like posers in comparison. And Lemmy...we will all excuse the Hellraiser movie...you still rule!

I´ve seen Motörhead in November..it was their second last gig.
Lemmy looked very skinny and fragile on stage.. I was kinda shocked but they ( once again) rocked the crowd.

Its sad that Mickey Dee said Motörhead will dissolve now. I understand that it makes sense since Lemmy was Motörhead and Motörhead was Lemmy.

The next day I thought..day one after Lemmy..

They will live forever.



OP, it´s MotÖrhead..
