The surviving members of the greatest rock band ever talk about their iconic badass frontman and Motörhead’s new live album.
On December 28,, 2015, rock ’n’ roll’s most distinctive voice was silenced for good when Lemmy Kilmister died from aggressive cancer. The singer and bass player for Motörhead always seemed immortal. During his 70 years on earth, Lemmy set the bar for real rock ’n’ roll and never wavered. Alongside him for a good part of the ride were his bandmates, guitarist Phil Campbell (who joined in 1984) and drummer Mikkey Dee (he signed on in 1991). Both were with Lemmy to the very end.
With the upcoming release of a new Motörhead CD Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin on the horizon (and Motörhead-branded bourbon and CBD hempette AltSmokes currently on the market), we caught up with Mikkey from his home in Germany and Phil from his London pad to talk about the new album and what it was like to be in Lemmy’s gang.
