Over four decades, Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has registered an immeasurable impact on music history. Nearly 65, he remains the living embodiment of the rock and roll lifestyle, and this feature-length documentary tells his story, one of a hard-living rock icon who continues to enjoy the life of a man half his age. Shot on a combination of High Definition and Super 16mm film, "Lemmy" includes interviews with friends, family, bandmates past and present and such admirers/peers as Metallica, Slash, Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters), Ozzy Osbourne, Peter Hook (Joy Division/New Order), actor Billy Bob Thornton, wrestling superstar Triple H, Alice Cooper, Mick Jones of The Clash, and many more.
Don't forget us....... We are Motörhead...... And we play Rock and Roll!!!!!
The Man....The Legend
Marlboro, speed, Jack Daniels, strippers and slot machines. That's Lemmy, that's Rock'n'Roll.
Biggest achievement: He has survived.
Recommendation to his son: Don't take coke. Take speed, that's better for you.
Lemmy remained true to himself and the movie provides a true insight into a life surprisingly down-to-earth. Four stars as the director could have tried at least to keep some distance and not completely succumb to Lemmy's worship. After all, he's by no means a role model.
The man, the legend.
Things I learnt from this film, about Lemmy
1) He has Chips for Breakfast
2) He likes playing on fruitys
3) He is a hoarder
4) He has a Billy the Bass
From this, I have concluded that I love Lemmy
Good documentary on the Motorhead frontman. He lives a simpler life than you might imagine. Good stuff.
Brilliant documentary about the living legend of rock n' roll Lemmy. Some cracking live footage of the icon with Motorhead, jamming with Metallica and recording with Dave Grohl make this essential viewing for fans, and the man's life story makes for fascinating viewing whether you're a fan or not.
Lemmy (the person) is awesome. How awesome? He rents a crappy Hollywood apartment, has a weird thing for Nazi memorabilia, hangs out with Dave Grohl — and yet despite all these flaws, he's still awesome. That's how awesome Lemmy is.
Lemmy the movie? Pretty good. Mostly because Lemmy is in it. And Lemmy is awesome.
Great documentary about one of the legends of rock n' roll. What I like about it is that it doesn't try to make Lemmy as the greatest rock n' roller of all times. It just shows how human he is.
Lemmy is one of the most iconic frontmen in rock and roll music history, best known for either being the founding bassist and vocalist of Motorhead or simply having some of the most distinctive sideburns in the country. The music scene he is associated with, his Nazi memorabilia collection or even his facial hair may not make the best first impression, but minutes into watching the documentary, which is creatively titled ‘Lemmy (2010)’, he becomes something of an inspiration. A character you would love to be when you became his age, or at very least someone to have a drink with, somebody who would just surprise you with the most ridiculous stories. ‘Hey did I tell you about the time…
