Following the untimely passing of iconic Motörhead bassist/frontman Lemmy Kilmister, the Rainbow Bar & Grill has unveiled a permanent statue of him, who was a regular at the Sunset Strip bar in West Hollywood. One fan, Katon De Pena, singer of LA thrash band Hirax, suggested erecting a statue in honor of Lemmy in his favorite LA haunt, the Rainbow Bar & Grill. The life-size bronze sculpture was commissioned after fans and friends contributed to a fundraising campaign following Lemmy's death in December. The statue is just another reminder that this legend will never die.
Lemmy Kilmister may have died but Motörhead's music lives on. In fact, UDR Music will release Clean Your Clock, a live CD/DVD/Blu-ray on June 10th. Now you can watch footage of the iconic metal group performing "Bomber" live at the Zenith in Munich - their last recorded gig.
UDR Music just announced a new Motörhead live release. Clean Your Clock will be available on CD, Double LP and as a live performance on DVD and Blu-ray. A Limited Edition boxset will also be made available. On November 20th and 21st 2015, at the Zenith in Munich, Germany, UDR Records made the decision to record what happened to be the very last live Motörhead shows ever recorded and the iconic band proceeded to deliver two storming sold out shows. On May 27th, Clean Your Clock will be released.
It has just been announced that the legendary frontman Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister of the UK heavy metallers Motörhead passed away sometime yesterday, December 28th, after a short, aggressive fight with cancer.
The legendary Motörhead have just premiered their brand new video for the tune "When The Sky Comes Looking For You" taken from their 22nd studio album, Bad Magic, which was released back in August via UDR Music. The clip was directed by Pep Bonet, who has been working with the band since 2008 and compiled Motörhead's Röadkill book of photography. It was shot over two days in Palma de Mallorca with extras who had applied to be part of the filming after Bonet made an online appeal. You can watch the video below and enjoy some Motörhead.
Motörhead have had to cancel a few shows this year and in previous years due to frontman Lemmy's health issues. However, yesterday they canceled their Berlin sold out show because guitarist Phil Campbell was hospitalized. While they didn't give more details about it, they promise an update soon. They are scheduled to play in Hamburg, Germany today.
After In Flames canceled their show in Nancy, now also Motörhead have postponed the Paris date on their European tour after the Ministry of Culture decided to close the Zenith in Paris. Saxon and Girlschool were also scheduled to perform as part of the Motörhead European tour. A new date in January is in the works for the show in Paris.
Heavy metal legends Motörhead have lost their former drummer Phil Taylor aka Philthy Phil, who died at the age of 61. He was the band's drummer from 1975-1984 and later from 1987-1992. After that, current drummer Mikkey Dee took over the drummer spot. He appeared on the band's debut album and played on a further 10 albums, including 1979's Bomber, 1980's Ace Of Spades, and 1981 live album No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith. He contributed to 1992 album March Or Die but departed the band during the recording process. It seems like he was ill for quite some time. R.I.P.
As you probably know, Motörhead have been cancelling several shows recently on their North American tour. It seems that frontman Lemmy Kilmister was suffering from a lung infection which deteriorated with the altitude but the band vows to return to the stage tonight on their show in St. Louis.
Motörhead's current North American tour is still not running smoothly. Because of frontman Lemmy Kilmister health issues, the metallers have had to cancel their Dallas and Houston appearances as well. Saxon still played in each city. Lemmy fully intends to resume touring duties as, and when, his doctors give him the all-clear. So, it is still unclear whether or not Motörhead will perform on the next shows on the tour. Keep an eye on the band's official websites for regular updates on that.
It happened again. After their Utah show being stopped after a few songs, Motörhead's legendary frontman Lemmy Kilmister stopped the band's show in Austin, Texas last night again and admitted: "I can't do it." Motörhead had already cancelled their Riot Fest in Denver as well due to continued health issues of Lemmy Kilmister. At this point, it's fair to ask if it's healthy for Lemmy to even be playing live if he is not well. So far, things have not been going so well on their North American tour in support of Bad Magic.
While Motörhead should be celebrating the release of their new album, Bad Magic, things aren't going well for Lemmy of late and in the last few years. After the band was forced to cut short a show in Salt Lake City earlier in the week after the 69 year-old frontman had some breathing problems, they ended up canceling their performance at the Riot Fest for the same reasons. Motörhead played just 4 songs in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Motörhead cover version of The Rolling Stones classic "Sympathy For The Devil" has premiered online and can be streamed at this location. The song is taken from band's much-anticipated 22nd studio album, Bad Magic, which will be released later this week on August 28th. At the same location, you can listen to three other new songs from the record that include "Victory Or Die," "Evil Eye" and "Shoot Out All Your Lights".
The new music continues, this time around with a new song from Motörhead. The legendary band has just premiered their brand new lyric video for the tune "Electricity." By now, you are probably aware that the heavy metal titans' upcoming 22nd studio album, Bad Magic, is due out on August 28th this year via UDR Music/Motörhead Music. Stream the new track below, and let us know what you think about it.
