If you need proof that Metallica love Motorhead, check out this just-posted video of Metallica posing as The Lemmys in 1995 at the Whisky-a-Go-Go in LA. The guys, who donned sunglasses and long, black-haired wigs, tore through a set of Motorhead songs in honor of Lemmy Kilmister‘s 50th birthday.
The event, which takes place November 7 and November 8 at SIR Studios, 6465 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood, features exhibits by top gear manufacturers and clinics by world-class bassists. An all-star concert featuring this year’s award recipients will take place November 7 at Musicians Institute, 6752 Hollywood Blvd.
The sound of Motörhead is defined by the high-output fat tone and midrange grind Lemmy Kilmister has delivered for decades with songs like "Ace of Spades” and "Iron Fist,” combined with a fast pick attack on his Rickenbacker bass.
Motörhead were forced to cut short their set at Germany's Wacken festival this past Friday after frontman Lemmy found himself too weak to continue. It was Lemmy's first live appearance since cancelling a set of shows after he being hospitalized with a hematoma and told to rest.
Motörhead have had to cancel several gigs after Lemmy Kilmister suffered a hematoma. Barley Arts Promotion, promoter for a recently cancelled Motörhead show in Milan, Italy, announced on the band's website that the hematoma made it "impossible ... to go on stage."
