He was born one day before Jesus (if Jesus had been born in 1945), he's done more speed than you've had coffee and his voice kinda sounds like what your conscience SHOULD sound like (so you always hear it).
He's Lemmy - the lead singer and bassist from one of the toughest, coolest and most clairvoyant hard rock/metal bands of all-time. Sure most of you have heard of Motörhead and you may recognize Lemmy from his trademark mole, but what do you really know about this living legend, a character the contains the essence of what it truly means to live the rock life? Not much? No problem. Somebody went ahead and did the work for you.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the most perfectly titled movie since "Problem Child" - this is Lemmy: The Movie.
Many years ago I was working on a job that required me to be up at an ungodly time in the morning. I was in a van with Dylan around 5am and we were drinking coffee, rubbing the sleep out of our eyes and sitting in silence at a red light in NYC. As we sat there in our soon to be caffeinated depression, a man crossed into the headlights of our rented van. We looked at him, he looked at us - it was Lemmy.
As cool as we thought we were, he could see our eyes locked on him like it was Mr. Belvedere himself. He cautiously paused, as to make sure we weren't two shitfaced dicks that would plow through a red light at the crack of dawn, and then continued on with what had to be the rest of his night/our morning.
I can't remember who, but one of us said, "Jesus Christ, is that Lemmy?" There needn't be an answer as we both new what had just occurred. We might as well have been on a Rock 'N Roll safari that day/night. Keep your windows rolled up and don't annoy the animals - just sit, watch and observe. Photos and such are available at the gift shop.
