Greetings Fellow Motorheadbangers!!


I have had word that Lemmy is sick and that some or all of the remaining shows are cancelled. I have not been able to confirm this through the management, but I recommend to any of you that were planning to attend and especially travel to shows in the coming couple of weeks to check with the venues to make sure the show is still on. I will keep you posted on info as I get it.

Maybe you could post some info on how other members can obtain this cool addition to the collection?

Have an awesome week!

Hi all.

For those Motrheadbangers in the U.S. and those who want to call a toll-free U.S. number to inquire about the Motrhead print shoes by Vans, please call

(800) VANS-800

I've called and left a message with a woman in customer service who hasn't called me back yet (bummer), but I'm gonna call back every few days or so and find out what's up. If any of you wish to join in the effort it may spur them to get off their asses and get us our shoes! I'm planning on buying a pair for each of my kids, too. Maybe for my parents, my cousins, nieces and nephews, etc. Hope I've been helpful.

Also, on a separate note, to all OS members whose primary language is not English, It's great to see that you all make such an effort to convey your messages in a clear and understandable way. I know that there's no way I could do it in any foreign language and I really dig reading your stories and perspectives. Keep it up and realize that you never need to apologize for grammatical errors or anything like that. You are our brothers and sisters and when we've all gone to Valhalla, we'll party together as one family. Motrhead forever!


**Ace: I spoke to a Vans representative last week. She told me that the Motorhead shows were not for sale. They were created for give-a-ways and promos only! So, if you are lucky enough to own a pair, they are now rare collectors items.

Hi there,

> It's released by Musical Tragidies (Germany), Tragidy One Two Three (MT-298).
> Other numbers I found on it were EFA 12220 en LC 6838; apparently it's number 12

I've also got the yellow saw-single. Mine is number 12, too, so it's apparently no series.
Have you unfolded the cover? Front and backside are one picture.

Subject: os : regarding the vans footwear and vh1

Just wanted everyone to know that I emailed the head of Vans and I got a reply back the same day. I guess we will all have to envy the band themselves as I was informed that there are no plans to market Motorhead Vans to the public. Appartently these were made for the band only.

Also, due to the recent attention MH has gotten on VH1, I think its very important that we all email VH1 and let them know that a MH behind the scenes would be most appreciated. They read all the comments and feedback that they receive, who knows, it just might work!!

? still available somewhere?

Yes, it's still available, but only as a bootleg shirt. When I was in London, I bought Gimme Some Motorhead sweat shirt in Camden Town in some T-shirts shop, I don't rememer exactly it's name, but it was the first t-shirt shop on the way from the Camden Town tube station. If you have some friends in London, ask them to buy this sweat shirt for you.

All the best for everybody,

I just received a catalogue from a clothing compnay in England called 8-BALL. They stock a few Motorhead tshirts including (We are) Motorhead and the England one. I think they are both in long sleeve or short sleeve and are from 16-80 without packaging and posting costs. This should be much easier for people who can't use the paypal system. The company's site is; http://www.8ball.co.uk A very worth while visit, beleive me. Thel also stock other metal such as AC/DC, Seps, Slayer etc. I do beleive they have some Motorhead patches too. I'm sure they will obtain more Motorhead stuff too if enough of us ask for the stuff.

Hi people,

Great gig on november the 30th, the band was in great shape, as usual - they seemed to be in a good mood. Lemmy was smiling and joking in between the songs and he seemed to enjoy himself. The set was the usual, but with some pleasant additions, "shoot you in the back" and damage case...some "golden moldies" so to speak. Somebody said that he thought that going to brazil and born to raise hell should be dropped from the setlist. Well, I'm against that, those two songs have become live favorites of mine...that just goes to prove that you can't make everybody happy. Finally, here's some songs I'd like to hear live: motorhead, I'll be your sister...and couldn't they play iron horse? There's always somebody wanting to herar that one.

Hi Ace,

I just wanted to ask a quick question.

Is it possible to get an e-mail address ending in '@Motorhead.com' as I have seen this facility on the Metallica web site for - '@Metallica.com' e-mail addresses.

If this doesnt currently exist, maybe you could set one up on the web site.

I got your contact from the official Motrhead website.

The reason I'm writing is 'cos the band that I do a website for - Carbon H - have just recorded a version of Ace Of Spades for a portuguese tribute to Motrhead.

I thought you might enjoy listening to it. The most interesting fact about it is that the band has female vocals, which give the song a new turn. And on guest guitar is the guitar player of the most famous portuguese rock band ever - Xutos & Pontaps - who is a Motorhad fan since his youth.

If you wish to download it and send an opinion, do it at:

I'm sending a small, poor quality MP3 sample to give you a short idea. Hope you don't mind.

You can distribute/link to the MP3 file in any way as long as it's not changed.

Well, that's it. Sorry if I'm wasting your time. Keep up the tribute to one of the most influential bands in the rock scene
