Greetings Fellow Motorheadbangers!!


Well, as many of you know, Lemmy had a bit of a bought with the flu in Europe. Being the touring animal that he is, he never took the time to full recover from the flu when it struck him early in the tour. As these things do, it got worse until he was finally forced to go to a hospital for a few days and get treatment. The doctors advised him to take it easy for a few weeks before this becomes more serious. So, the rest of the European tour got cancelled.

The good news is that Lemmy is now home in Los Angeles and is recovered from the flu. He even took some time a few days ago to enter the studio and lay down his parts for a new track for the WWF Wrestling theme song. Bob Kulick produced it and from all reports it turned out pretty cool. It should be included on a compilation CD coming out soon.


I must say that being involved with Motorhead in the capacity that I am is one of the highlights of my life. Add to that the fact that I get to interact with all of you makes this job very, very special. I just wanted to take a moment to wish all of you the very best in the upcoming year and may all of you metal dreams be heavy!

Dear Mr. Kilmister,
Hello Lemmy!

As a few friends and I were to see Motrhead on Dec. 9th in Innsbruck, we had to hear that you were at the hospital because of a heart attack, so we decided to go to Graz to give you a visit. Unfortunately, we couldn't find the hospital they brougth you to (maybe because we were too drunk...). We truly hope that you will be well again in time! Our very fucking best wishes to you! All Hail!

Riege, Jutta, Fichte, Feide, Marc, Loser

**ACE: PLEASE NOTE: Lemmy DID NOT suffer from a heart attack. It was a severe flu.

Hello everyone,

Click here while there's time to view an interview with Lemmy:

The questions aren't exactly probing, but Lem's wit shines through. The "Stars In Their Eyes" answer cracks me up (UK readers take special note, though I suppose there are versions of this sort of cobblers all around the world), and the trapdoor escapades are priceless. As always, my apologies if this is news is old=hat - I'm behind somewhat on my digests.

If I don't speak=at you all before, have a great Christmas - especially you Ace! Take a break geezer, you deserve it.

All the best,

Importance: high


It seems confirmed that MH have cancelled the current tour due to Lemmy's illness. Here is the information founded on the web for the swiss concert in Pratteln : Motorhead have sadly been forced to cancel the remaining dates of their European tour due to an illness on the part of Lemmy. Doctors have just told Lemmy to take a rest of at least 4 weeks. The concert will take place at a later date - I will inform you of the new date as soon as we receive it. Tickets remain valid for the new concert.

The Italian dates of the Motorhead have been cancelled and would seem that Lemmy is at the hospital for a virale infection. I have been said that he will have to stay there two weeks and then have one whole month of total rest. I have feared for his life.When I have met him in London I have found him in a bad shape , then I thought that he would have had himself to grant a beautiful rest,now I think that for the anniversary was already sick. Anyone knows preciser news write me please, I don't want to stay worried. Thanks for your support.

Hey there Ace-Man fellah,

Following your mailer, I have indeed called the Mean Fiddler ticket office (The Forum owners, amongst other venues-0207 916 6060))who have confirmed that as at least of 17:30GMT today, the Forum gig scheduled for December 19th is cancelled. Which is a bastard as I live only 12 minutes stumbling distance away. And I took the following day as holiday too. Bugger. Arse. Feck. Nips. Dogknob.

Gutted is my middle name and I own a one-eyed, two legged cat called Lucky.

Please get me my t-shirts before Christmas to cheer me up as this cancellation is crap news indeed. To any UK fans who were unfortunate not to catch them at Brixton................................................

Tough Titty Baby as it was absolutely marvelous!!!!!

Lemmy-I saw you last at Brixton and before that....the Ace Up Your Sleeve Tour at Sophia Gardens (Cardiff, Wales, Bach). Yes, you should live the rock'n'roll life style but I wuz kinda lookin forward to seein ya on the 19th.

Get well very soon and have a cool yule.

Subject: os: lemmy's illness

Organization: none

MOTORHEAD have been forced to cancel their remaining UK 25th anniversary dates, as Lemmy has been ordered by doctors to take "a complete break due to extreme exhaustion". Mr Kilminster is said to be laid up in bed in Italy, after a hectic year of touring and promotional work. Promoting their 25th Anniversary album 'We Are Motorhead' the band played 39 gigs in 48 days, in lands as excessive far afield as Japan, UK, Poland and Norway. The speed-fuelled star was also suffering from a "severe bout of influenza" prior to the tour, but carried on nonetheless "to ensure the band's fans weren't let down". "Doctors have been telling me for year and years to slow down," said Lemmy from his hospital bed in Italy, "how was I to know that this time they meant it? I carried on because I didn't want to let the fans down in the countries we were due to play... it now looks like I should have taken time out weeks ago to fully recover."

Hello! First off, The Fox is the best radio station in Denver! There is only one problem w/ your fine radio station, NO MOTORHEAD! Is there a reason for this?? They have been around for 25 years, so I figure they could be classified as 'classic rock'. So how about some Motorhead??

All Motorheadbangers should tune into VH1's "Rock Show" on Friday nights for Motorhead videos and references are usual. For some reason, VH1 has been referring to and showing Motorhead footage more of late then i can recall any other station ever doing.

We should all contact VH1, Motorhead permitting, to insist on an expose or the like. This exposure would be great for all and could get the boys into the Rock and Roll hall of Fame where they belong. Even though they havent sold trillions of albums, no one can argue their importance not only to heavy rock, but to the entire music industry.

Subject: OS: Motorhead In Russia - Pt.1

Hello to everybody!
The concerts in St. Petersburgh and in Moscow went brilliant!!! It was an awesome feeling to see the band playing here in Russia once again three years after their first ever appearance in Russia back in 1997. As it was three years ago, the first date of Russian shows was St. Petersburgh on the 1st of December. They crossed the Finnish-Russian border at 6 AM, and after a long wait on the customs, two buses and a truck entered the gates of Jubileum Palace of Sports at 14:00. Right after the arrive the work has began - the entering gates were very far from the arena, and the stage itself was very high ( Jubileum is a big sport arena, it's capacity is about 6.000 - 7.000) so it took a long time to settle all the Motorhead gear on stage. The band was sleeeping in a bus until 16:30, and the first who appeared inside the venue was Mikkey. To this moment half of the gear was already put on stage, and Mikkey began to walk around checkin this and that. While waiting for the finishing of the bulding the scene, we chated with Mikkey a lot, one of the things that surprised me a lot was that Mikkey knows personally almost all our famous Russian NHL hockey players very well, and from time to time they're guesting in a Mikkey houce chating with him over a cup of beer!!!
Lemmy and Phil appered around 18:00, and soon after that everything was ready for a soundcheck - they played Overkill and Damage Case. While roaming around the stage I saw a track list, and it was a great surprise to see Shoot You In The Back among the usual numbers - they never played this song live since 1984! After some time the band retired to do some interviews and to eat something before the show. They hit the stage at 21:10, and Lemmy heralded their presence in the usual way: "We're Motorhead and we're gonna kick your ass!!!" Five thousand throats roared in extasy, and the mighty rock'n'roll machine began with the new classic "We Are Motorhead" - I am sure that from now on they're destined to open each gig with this track! The set list was the following:

We Are Head / Bomber / No Class / I'm So Bad / Shoulder / Civil War / Metropolis / Shoot You In The Back / God Save /Born To Raise / Out Of Jail / Damage Case / Sacrifice / Orgasmatron / Brazil / Iron Fist / By Death / Ace Of Spades / Overkill.

Shoo You and Damage Case became an excellent 'new' oldies, and three tracks from the new album represented "We Are Motorhead" well.During the first half of the show the sound was so-so , but to the time of God Save The Queen and Born To Raise Hell it changed for the better and reached the maximum possible quality for the big sport arena. The band was very excited to play in Russia once again, and after almost every song Lem and Phil complimented the audience. The crowd gave it back to them, meeting each new number with the massiver roar. There was a funny moment after Metropolis - Lemmy began to ask "Are there any punks in St. Petersburgh?!", preparing the crowd for Sex Pistols cover, but then he looked down on the set list and realised that it's a little bit early for GSTQ, plus to that the crowd wasn't very enthusiastic about punks and reacted very quetly to this question, so Lem said in reply: "Well, not many punks here... Than we will play a song for your babushka and de! dushka (he learned how to spell grandpa and grandma in Russian!!!), a very old tune, the song is called Shoot You In The Back!" But nevertheless after that 'old tune' they played GSTQ, and this song was accepted surprisingly well by the audience with no punks in it. Born To Raise Hel and new hit Stay Out Of Jail just blew out the crowd, with every number the St. Peter's audience went more crazy, and to the time of Sacrifice and Mikkey's drum solo the crowd began to look like a sea during the 9-balls storm! As it was in London, Phil was all over the place - you just witnessed him at one side of the stage, and in a blink of an eye he was already on the other side thrashing and delivering mighty guitar riffs to the thankful St. Peter's audience. The usual package of old hits finished the hour-and-a-half set, and the band left the stage, leaving the crowd in extasy after the best rock'n'roll show ever seen.

To be continued...

All the best for everybody,

Hi again!

Here's the continuation of the story:

And here's the real party began: the band spent half of the night in dressing rooms "smoking and drinking/never gonna stop" surrounded by large amounts of whiskey and groupies. It was a shock for me to see Lemmy around 2 AM with almost empty bottle of Jack Daniels - he was walking and chatting like this means nothing to him, I wonder how a human being can stay in a vertical position after such huge amounts of alcohol?! No doubt, he's one of a kind!
Around 3 AM the rock'n'roll caravan left St. Petersburgh to Moscow. I was privileged to travel with them in a roadies bus, and I can proudly announce that I took a biggest part in exterminating of beer stock - the most part of beer was drunken with the help of the only Russian in the bus! We were stopped by the road police for a several times during that night, and as I was the only one Russian in the buses, I was the only one who could relate with the policemen and to explain to them that the rock'n'roll legends gave the a honour to ride on this road, and it's a big luck to the policemen to witness the legendary Motorhead in all it's beauty on the road. But sometimes it took some time (and money, ha-ha!) to explain to the poppy cops who the hell are Motorhead! The band entered Moscow on Saturday around 17:30, and landed in a hotel for some time before going to look for adventures on the Moscow streets. The company went to see some traditional touristic places of interest - Red Square and all that, and late in the evening the small group headed by Lemmy went to the one of the biggest Moscow strip club - called Rasputin. On the next day before the showtime the band and the roadies went for some souveniers and visited Red Army Museum, and then headed towards Gorbunov Palace of Culture. This legendary venue is not big at all - it's capasity is about 2.500, but all Moscow panthers feels there like at home, and almost all foreign bands who came to Russia were playing at Gorbukha and Motorhead played there too three years ago. The souncheck was the same as in St. Petersburgh. The doors were opened at 18:00, and the band went onstage at 19:30, giving enough time for the fans to prepare themselves with the beer for the show. After the first chords there was raised massive roar of the audience, which sang all the songs word by word, and sometimes the roar of the crowd was even louder than the sound of Motorhead amps! That was the thing that surprised the band most of all, after the show they told me, that they never seen such a noisy audience ever! The set list was the same as in St. Petersburgh, but they played it much faster - Mikkey confessed me after the gig that it was his fault - he told me that when he is tired he plays everything way faster than it's ought to be played. During one song somebody threw a bunch of roses on stage, and it touched Lemmy a lot ("Roses on stage?! Wow... I've never seen such things for years!..") - and Tim Butcher placed the bouqet on the Lemmy's amp. Motorhead never! gave a break to rest for the crowd - one rock'n'roll hit was followed by another one, the sound was excellent, and the wave of primal rock'n'roll energy covered the crowd. The tickets were very expencieve, but the venue was packed to the full - all the Moscow headbangers decided that it was impossible to miss such a show, and they were absolutely right! The energy of Motorhead live set can be compared only with the blow of a couple of atomic reactors, and Moscow show was just stunning - it was impossible to believe that such amount of energy can be delivered by three men only! Motorhead played a usual set that lasted for a hour-and-a-half, but it seemed that Lemmy and Co. played at least for three hours - the impact and the might of their rock'n'roll strike was just incredible! Traditionally shooting the crowd with the bass at the end of Overkill, Lemmy, Phil and Mikkey left the crowd at the peak of rock'n'roll hapiness. The band continued to party at the backstage after the show while the gear was put inside the road truck. We chated with the guys about this and that, and among other things they told me that the band has a plans to play in South Africa soon, I had never believed at first: "What?! South Africa?! You're kidding!", but they were very serious and convinced me that it's true, just unbelievable! We spoke about all this fast spreading thing with the tribute albums, and Phil told me that he played two songs on recent Thin Lizzy Tribue, but the used one one of them. To this moment Mikkey is the only member of the band who never took part in tribute albums, but this will last for not so long - he told me that he recorded a song for a Metallica tribute (he wasn't sure, but he told that it was 'Sanitarium'), this tribute was led by Bob Kulick and all the famous drummers are on this album, it will be out after some time. Phil also recorded a song for Iron Maiden tribute that will be out!
in South America.
Three hours and a half later the band left for Minsk, and what more can I add? Moscow gig was one of the best Motorhead shows I ever saw, but... it seems to me that I write this words after each Motorhead concert! I wonder, how they can become better and better with each show?! That proves that they're one of a kind - the only band that still plays the dirtiest, loudest and meaniest rock'n'roll on Earth!

All the best for everybody,
Artyom MHB 1916

1. Rush/UFO/MaxWebster Spokane Coliseum Farewell to Kings Tour [early songs, great light show (magnesium flashpots!), 'nuff said.] UFO w/ Spanky, 'nuff said! Also, my first concert at age 15.
2. BlackSabbath/Motorhead/Tiamat Temple Theater Tacoma, WA. First of all, this was in a Masonic Temple (Egyptian motif, sphinxes, etc...)
Lemmy came out and struck a chord on his bass and said: "Is it loud enough, 'cause we can turn it up if you want!" Fuck all, I was plastered into my seat! One hour seemed like eternity. You know the Maxell ad where the guy is gettingblown away by his stereo? That is what it was like. My ears are still ringing to this day. Hey, Lemmy, thanks for the tinnitus! Also, what was Tony Iommi thinking by taking Motorhead on tour as a backup band? R.I.P. Cozy Powell.
3. Mary'sDanish/GrantLeeBuffalo GrantLeeBuffalo - 3 Piece band w/ great songs, acoustic guitar w/ distortion/leads. And they were blow your hair back loud.
4. ZZTop - even if you don't like them, a must see live. (notice my top 4 shows were all 3 piece bands?)
5. BlackSabbath/VanHalen Spokane Coliseum Never Say Die tour - next to last show w/Ozzy - he got way too drunk, and passed out 3/4 of the way into the set.
6. Aerosmith/ AC/DC Spokane Coliseum Aerosmith when they were still good (read: on drugs) backed up by AC/DC w/ Bon Scott. Angus Young & Steven Tyler on amphetamines, 'nuff said.
7. Nazareth - Expect No Mercy tour Spokane Coliseum
8. Rush in the Gorge (WA) 1996 (?) Did 2112 straight through for the first time in years - my friends and I were on LSD - 'nuff said
9. Sarah McLachlan Paramount Theater, Seattle Fumbling Towards Ecstasy tour

2. Motorhead
3. Celtic Frost
4. Rush
5. Black Sabbath
6. Fishbone
7. Therion
8. Janet Jackson
9. Sarah McLachlan
10. Anita Baker
4: My interesting nicknames.
1. In the late '80s / early '90s, the punk community in Spokane knew me as Bill Frost because I was into the METAL band Celtic Frost.
2. For a short while, I sported mutton chops & mirror shades, which earned me the nickname "little Lemmy".(I'm 5'5")
3. I've got some friends who are Satanists, and in the Satanic/Black metal community I'm known as "Baggins" (yes, ie. Bilbo, which is kinda scary once you think about it.)
5: My initials are W.O.W., and my birthday is April 6th. Anybody know what I'm talking about here? R.I.P., girl. YHVH, so it is done.


P.S., Yes, sometimes I scare myself.

Hi All,

Just to let you know that founder member of Motorhead LARRY WALLIS now has his own web site. Not a lot on there yet, but a very interesting open letter on the 'New Album' page.

He's asking for opinions so check it out on http://www.PinkFairies.co.uk Also check out a great new sound file taken from the 'UHCK Pink Fairy/Deviants' 'Hams Volume Three' CD.
This CD is a 'Must Have'.

Subject: uk gig dates

Hi Ace and 'Bangers everywhere

Well I must admit I was gutted to hear about Lemmy's illness and the subsequent cancellation of the UK gigs. All I can say is "Get well soon mate and best of luck!" (I spent the money I had put by for the coach to London on the 'We Are Motorhead' special edition in the fetching black "leather" box. I love the album and It's got just the right combination of what you expect and what you don't!)

Meanwhile I've been on the phone to Ticketweb and they say that the rescheduled date for Lemmy's Birthday gig at Forum is Wed. May 23 and that if tickets for the 19th December will still be valid so you won't have to exchange them.

I noticed someone mentioning a guy who was shocked at seeing girls wearing Motorhead T shirts. Weird thing to get shocked about for sure! I've always openly encouraged it. But it reminded me that I saw the Spice Girls on Top Of The Pops and Mel C. was wearing a March Or Die T shirt and bloody good for her - there's hope for the Spice Girls yet!

One more quick note:
In the last OS when I was asking if people wanted to meet up before the gig in London and wanted people to see that I wasn't some kind of weirdo, I got the=URL for my band's web site wrong The URL should be http://www.geocities.com/autonomicus I must be an imbecile=to get my own address wrong and I couldn't let it lie. Besides I worked hard on that site and want people to see the damn thing!

Catch you later,

Subject: os: lemmy/ozzy - no more tears?

About the time when I was new to this list there was some mentioning about the Ozzy Ozbourne song "No more tears". If I remember correctly it was stated that Lemmy actually wrote that song and sold it to Ozzy for close to nothing. Curious as I am I would like to know more about this:

Did Lemmy write the music AND the lyrics? Or did he just write the music? Or just the lyrics? Or just part of the lyrics? Does anyone on this list know and care to share?

Subject: inflated ticket prices aren't the band's fault!

Hi Ace,

To the guy who was complaining re: the price of the tickets coming up to 20.50 from 15.00 for one of the UK shows, try finding anywhere apart from the venue itself that doesn't add on their cut which usually means a booking fee, a handling charge, then postage and packing. I'm surprised they don't have a "scratching their backside" charge as well for all the effort involved in taking a phone booking.

The arrangement is nothing to do with Motorhead or any other band for that matter - the management and the promoter's presumably set the price - once the agencies do their bit, the overall price shoots up and it's the paying punter who gets it. And as we all know, that's nothing new.

Best wishes

Subject: OS: Promoting Motorhead

I see all of this shit about promoting Motorhead and I have a question about how I can participate. If I was to go down the alleys of the neighborhood with a big fat black marker and write " Motorhead Rules" or some other such shit on the garage doors, would that count? I would use spray paint, but it's kinds windy outside lately, and I don't want the paint blowing back into my face, because when you wear glasses, it's very hard to get that shit off of them. I would also write shit about Motorhead in some wet cement, but they don't put in new cement around here this time of year. I have done that before, and it stays awhile. If I just concentrated on writing the stuff on the garages of the Pigs only, would that help any? We have all sorts of Pigs around here, Chicago, Suburban, Cook County, Illinois State, even some Federal ones. So they would all get totally fuckin' paranoid if I was to do this, and go to the local media freaking out about how they were being singled out for attack by this Motorhead stuff, and the name would get out all over the place around here. The fuckin' Pigs hate Motorhead anyweay, I already know that. I remember when I was arrested a few years back and was sitting handcuffed to a railing in the local Pig Station at like 3 A.M. and all the fuckin' Oinker Piggies were coming into the room and giving me various types of Pig shit. The one fucker looked at my Motorhead keychain and said "This shit will make you deaf" ,as he scowled at the logo. So is this suggestion something that would gain me accolades from the masses, or not?
