Love Me Like A Reptile

‘Nastiest sea creature to ever inhabit Earth’ named after Lemmy from Motörhead

“He was the hell-raising, grizzled, frontman of Motörhead who took pride in his excessive hardcore lifestyle and once invited fans to ‘Love Me Like a Reptile.’

So when palaeontologists at the National History Museum were choosing a name for their new ferocious Jurassic sea-crocodile, Lemmy seemed the obvious choice.”

P.S.: Learn how to spell, Telegraph editors!

One year ago today

Tonight, a year ago, we lost the man, the legend, one of the last of a dying breed, Mr. Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister. The hole he left is more gaping than any sinkhole, but the hefty catalog of work he left us stands tall and proud among the wreckage of rock’n’roll. Take care of George and Carrie, uncle rotter!

Mini-documentary on Lemmy statue & MC5 HOF

A short documentary on the making of the Lemmy statue at the Rainbow Bar and Grill has been posted on Youtube:

Also, the MC5, the inspiration for Motörhead, have been nominated for inclusion in the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame next year. Vote here to make sure they stand a chance of getting recognised!

The statue is up!

Love it or lump it, the statue of Lemmy is now up at the Rainbow! Its unveiling was preceded by a new all-star jam.

Also, don’t forget that HeavyCon in Birmingham will have the first official Lemmy museum that includes the real bomber rig.
