Lemmy (2010)

I just watched Lemmy (2010) on Netflix and was impressed by how little I knew about Motorhead’s front man. 66 year-old Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister makes Keith Richards look like a pussy cat. The guy smokes like a fiend and has been drinking a bottle of Jack Daniels every day since he was 30!

At one point in the film, fellow musician Jim “Reverend Horton” Heath revealed that he tried to keep up with Lemmy one night and had to visit the hospital the next day for alcohol poisoning. Aside from the hard living lifestyle, Lemmy comes across as a hard-working eccentric that is a really nice guy.

I can’t say that I am a huge fan of Motorhead’s music but I found this documentary to be quite interesting. Lemmy is a one of a kind musician that is having a great time, playing music, out-lasting and out-living his peers.
