I was lucky enough to have some time for television last night. It's a rare occasion for me. As I was flipping through the channels I saw a documentary on Lemmy from Motorhead on VH1. I have always liked the band for their raw rock appeal, but I was never was a big enough fan to study up on them, drink Jack straight, wear iron crosses and such. So I thought it would be a great opportunity to get to know Lemmy a bit better. I'm glad I did. If there's one thing I discovered from the film, it's that Lemmy is the real deal. There's not a single sliver of poser in this man. Now in his mid 60s, Lemmy still rocks HARD, drinks a fifth of Jack a day, makes no apology for his speed habit, or fondness for collecting Nazi war memorabilia. This is a man who has truly lived the rock and roll lifestyle, even without the hordes of cash enjoyed by many of his contemporaries and followers. Authenticity oozes out of every pore in his body. The integrity of the band has earned them mounds of respect from musicians and for this playlist I've pulled together a set of Motorhead covers as performed by Motorhead fans.
