Subject: os: another perfect day

It was an absolutely beautiful day here today with tons of sunshine and an opportunity to listen to some great music outdoors... including a healthy dose of Lemmy and the boys!

The good news is that the band is back in Los Angeles and has resumes work on their new album. I will be conducting a phone-interview with Lemmy on tuesday to get an update. We will post the interview on the Motorhead Web Site in Real Audio so you can all hear what Lemmy had to say for yourselves.

The Motorhead Tribute is streaming along. And, yes, we are still looking for submissions. I hope to be to organize this project his week. Those individuals that are participating will get a separate e-mail from me.

Another bit of good news, Lemmy is finally sending us a tape of an Overnight Sensation show for broadcast on the internet site. I don't have a lot of details yet, but I believe the show is from Stockholm... I should have the tape this week and will update you next issue.

Until next issue....

Subject: os: motorhead in brixton

Hello fellow MHB's ... well I went to see Motorhead in Brixton last Saturday and the place was packed. It was the largest number of people I have seen Motorhead play to in the UK for a good number of years. Their set was tha same as earlier in the year apart from when they played 'Capricorn'. The show really does go from strength to strength and fans were very responsive and loved every minute of the concert.

They seem to be playing better as a three piece outfit, either that or I had drunk too much beer !!

Motorhead do have a very large dedicated fan base in the UK and they should play some bigger tours here in the future. It is very interesting to see that they can still pack a bigger audience than a lot of other metal bands such as Fear Factory and Machine Head etc, etc...

They also seem to play a much longer set than the old days. A few years ago you were lucky to get 1 hour from them, but now they play up to 1.5 hours, which is excellent.

We've been lucky to see them in London twice in one year !!! Not bad considering I had to fly from Germany to see this latest concert .. I hope the band appreciate the dedication (and cost). Still, at least I got to see my old mates and continued with a good piss up and a meal around Soho and Chinatown afterwards.

I hope the band enjoy themselves in Russia.
Smash the place up.

Good day Ace,

I understand you are trying to put on a tribute album to Motorhead. I hope it isn't too late, but my band and I would like, if possible, to be part of it. We are a Montreal (Canada) based band and the name's WALTER. We used to perform "The Hammer" during our shows and I was wondering if this could be a possible choice for a song. If not, please let me know of any other alternatives.

Cambridge Corn Exchange 23.10.97

What can be said about this gig, it was simply brilliant. It's been a few years since I've had the chance to see Motorhead live, Why they've not been near Cambridge recently needs answering, but that aside they were simply brilliant (& loud, God were they loud)

It's been a while since Cambridge (Especially the Corn Exchange) has had a decent rock act of this class.
Thanks lads, don't wait so long next time before rocking Cambridge

I have been reading plenty about this King Biscuit business. I've seen the song list and the location and I wonder if it's the same show that the picture disc was recorded at. I don't have the disc handy; it is buried in my Motorhead archives and it sure sounds like the same deal. Can anybody answer this question for me.

Thanx from Lemmsters homestate in the US of A

I doubt trading concert tapes hurts the band in anyway. Who sits there and says "Well I was gonna buy "1916" but I have this concert tape so now I wont." I only think it's wrong to bootleg if you try and pass them off as official releases from the band or if you make copies of stuff you can go to the store and buy but just don't wanna. Why don't you ask the band what they think?

If nothing ever sticks to teflon, how do they get it to stick to the pan?

** Editor - While I have never actually asked the band straight out about this issue, I do know that Lemmy is very upset about commercial bootlegs of his shows. I will make a point of asking him in the interview on tuesday.

Is it too late to get on the Motorhead tribute album? My band is called M.O.T.O., so I've always felt a special kinship to Motorhead, in addition to being a huge fan.

If you could let me know I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Dear Ace
The Motorhead concert was absolutely superb, I don't know or understand why that wanker in "OS 15" even had to mention Mickey Dees' couple of "off beats". I'm bloody sure if that spotty little tosser played as hard and fast as Mickey, he'd have a couple of "off beats or miss a couple of beats". I don't understand why people have to break things down in order to find faults that nobody would have even noticed if that shit hadn't of mentioned it. Come to think of it, I didn't notice at all. Lemmy and the lads couldn't be on better form if they tried. 400 miles is quite a trip just to see a band not to mention all the extra cost involved, but Motorhead are special and are worth every penny I and my wife spent and more besides. Wish little fuckheads like that would keep their little mouths shut.

Yours just ever so slightly pissed off


P.s. That kid had better watch out!

Hi Ace,

I read in the last Overnight Sensation, that you were going to be sending emails to all the bands that wanted to get in on the Motorhead Tribute, with details about it. I'm not sure if you have yet, but I haven't received anything, and I just wanted to make sure that you know that my band FALLOUT, definitely wants to be on the CD.

See ya... Evil Clam

That's it !!! I'm calling the "SCARY BALD GUY"!!

**Editor: I have been insanely busy this week at my day job, but later this coming week I should have the time to get the first organization e-mail out to all the bands. Thanks for you patience... THIS IS GOING TO ROCK!

Subject: os: lemmy on tv

In the UK, October had quite a Motorheadbanging end to the month!

There was the tour which ended in London, of which I was lucky to meet Lemmy in person, backstage at Brixton Academy (more about this surprise occasion in a later email!). Then on Halloween night, UK-Gold cable/satellite channel showed a "Comic Strip Presents" double bill which I refer to as a Motorhead double bill:

First they showed "More Bad News" - now that's a TV program which nobody has mentioned before on this mail-list as a Motorhead TV/film appearance (amongst all the Young Ones, Hardware, Airheads, etc people kept on mentioning). There's the bit when a new and upcoming heavy metal band - called Bad News - get to play at the Donington Monsters Of Rock festival and the reporter goes backstage to interview some of the other bands that are playing there too. Amongst the people they interview are Lemmy and Philthy "Animal" Taylor, giving their opposing views on Bad News getting to play at the festival.

Following "More Bad News" was "Eat The Rich". It was the first time I'd seen that film and I was very surprised to see that Lemmy had quite a major role in that! I was expecting him only to have a brief segment where he's singing in the background in the restaurant or something - but I was wrong. And to add to his major role, the film's music soundtrack was 100% Motorhead!

Anyway - on the Brixton Acadmy gig, Lemmy did mention that he was going to appear on some TV-chat show but I couldn't catch which one it was going to be. If anyone caught that, could you please advise me which program that would be so myself and other UK Motorheadbangers can look out for it.

Regards and keep rocking!

Subject: os: meeting lemmy backstage!

On the late afternoon of 25th October, Oliver and I arrived at the Brixton Academy, London, to see the greatest band on earth. Oliver maintains the Official Motorheadbangers Fanclub website. All I knew was that Oliver was on the guest list and he was allowed to bring a friend with him. He surprised me when he produced a handwritten and signatured letter sent to him by Lemmy himself!

We went to the stage door where more people were hanging around there - reporters hoping to get in to interview the legend, fans wanting to meet their idol, and a group of kids trying desperately to keep their drunk friend under control.

Many people were turned away by the security staff at the stage door, and once the small crowd had disappeared, along came Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell from where the tour trucks were parked and they were heading for the stage door. Oliver and I jumped at the chance to have photos and to exchange words with them. But where was Lemmy? He must have come separately from the rest of the band. Oliver then recognised someone from the band's management and after showing him the letter to prove our worthiness, we were immediately ushered through into stage door.

We were lead through the corridors of the restricted area of the Academy, again bumping into Phil and Mikkey along the way, until we were taken into a dressing room with a sign saying "Motorhead" on the door. Inside was the man himself - Lemmy! He was already dressed up for the gig, with his trademark pagan cross, bullet cartridge belt, etc. The manager then left us alone, and before we knew it, Oliver and I were all alone in this Devil's lair with Lemmy in it, all looking sinister and like he was going to rip us apart. But instead of doing just that, he offered us beer from the ice-box and fags from an open pack of Marlborough on the table, and we just got talking.

It was a all big surprise for the two us. We were not expecting to meet him so soon and you can imagine we were a bit dumbstruck for words! But Lemmy's a very down-to-earth guy and we found him very relaxed to get on with. And we were very surprised to be with him in such a private environment with no pressure whatsoever. I personally was expecting only a slim chance of meeting him and it could have been like when I met Metallica where I was there with 200 other people and it was all a matter of fighting my way to the front to get the band's attention.

So what did we talk about? I was talking about life, the universe and all kinds of rubbish. Oliver, in the other hand, asked questions on a more profesional level, most probably for his fanclub newsletters and website. When's the next live album coming out? Motorhead were planning that as the next album (following Overnight Sensation) would be a live one but that's not likely anymore since they are now in the studio recording a new album to be out next year. But the album following that one is likely to be a live one, according to Lemmy. Thent Lemmy said "But you can't trust what we say these days," so even though a live album is planned, there are no promises.

Lemmy said he's off to Mauritius (is that how to spell it?) the next day. I told him it's a great place for a holiday to which he replied that Motorhead doesn't have holidays. He then talked about Thailand and what a great place that is for a holiday. He told us about the various live girlie shows he saw, and a certain one where a girl would stuff razor-blades up where other razors have never been before! Of course, he had to end that subject by saying "I nearly fucked one of the women!" Well it wouldn't have been so good if she still had a razorblade hidden up there! He also told us how a native tried to sell his daughter to the band's manager.

Myself also being a Metallica fan, I had to mention the 50th Birthday gig at Whisky-A-Go-Go where Metallica appeared as the surprise support group. Lemmy said that he too was surprised that it turned out to be Metallica - it hadn't been kept secret only from the audience. He told us how Jason Newstead wrecked his voice when he sang "We Are The Road Crew" and it took him some days to recover (attendants at the Brixton Academy gig can now stop wondering why Lemmy dedicated that song to Metallica). Unfortunately, there are no plans of releasing a video of that concert.

Throughout the conversation, Lemmy was knocking back his Jack Daniels and Coke. He'd got through quite a bit of the bottle and he wasn't even getting pissed (he drinks it like it's water!). So several Marlboroughs later, he was about to light up another one when I stopped him and said "You're smoking the wrong brand." So I offered him a "beedy", a very potent Indian cigarette. He gratefully accepted it and told me that he used to smoke those in the 60's.

I avoided the subject of the band's involvement with illicit substances, not knowing if he would like talking about it or not, but out of the blue he did tell us how he used to abuse a Vicks Inhaler stick, but he can't do it anymore because of some benzine derivative they put in it.

Several photos were taken throughout. The photo of me with Lemmy is something I'll treasure! Anyway, the experience was totally unreal - just chilling out and talking with this rock 'n' roll legend in our own private 20 minute slot! All the time the words "We're not worthy!" kept on ringing in my head. He invited us to see him again after the gig and let him know what we thought of it. Party on!

After that we went out, pinching ourselves to make sure we hadn't dreamt the whole thing. I still feel that way but only the photos prove that the experience was real.

So it was back outside into reality, into the gig and right into the front row to watch the show with 5000 moshers pushing at us. Great show. I was very pleased for them to play Orgasmatron (a song that we sadly missed at the Astoria earlier this year) and especially liked the way they made Lemmy all ghoulish with tinted light to make his skin turn green, and the red lights coming on for the Motorhead symbol's eyes in the backdrop.

After the gig, Oliver and I went back to meet Lemmy. Unfortunately there was a different security man at the door and he refused to let us through. We even showed him the handwritten letter with Lem's signature on it but he ignored it. He also refused to get someone from Motorhead's management who would have confirmed to him our legibility to enter. Still, we'd met Lemmy earlier on, it was a great gig so we didn't think it was worth causing trouble that might spoil the day. But the curiousity would always haunt me over what happens after these shows, is there a party and are they wild, what do the band and people with VIP passes get up to, and what happened after that particular gig at the Brixton Academy? If anyone could let me know, I'd be most grateful. Does anyone know of any famous people who would have been there at the after-show party which we'd missed?

Anyway, thanks to Motorhead for a great day out. And thanks to Oliver's girlfriend for not liking Motorhead and for dropping out, otherwise the spare place would not have been there for me to get in as Oliver's guest! Thanks to Oliver for inviting me. It was fantastic meeting Lemmy and it was very good of him to have had time for us. He was very hospitable while we were with him in his dressing room, and I hope I can see him again when their next tour hits London!
