There are many rock bands around the world and back in the 60s or 70s, there were even more than there are today because as they say it was the rock music era. And one of the popular rock bands in the 70s was Motörhead which was formed in 1975. People have also listed this band as underrated because not many people know about this band.
And although the band is not as popular as Pink Floyd or other majorly famous rock bands, Motörhead has really amazing tracks and the band members to are really amazing with their music. This band was formed by Lemmy Kilmister, Lucas Fox, and Larry Wallis.
Lemmy is said to be a great vocalist and he is also a close friend of Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl. However, certainly, we are not here to talk about Grohl or his band Foo Fighters, we are here to talk about Lemmy. Many of his fans wanted to know who his favorite musician or singer was, so here we are, he talked about one of his favorite singers years ago and here we will discuss what he said and who his favorite singer is.
Who is Lemmy Kilmister’s favorite singer?
As mentioned above, Lemmy is a good friend of David Grohl and they have even worked on a few projects together, for example, in 2004, Lemmy gave hands to Grohl in his song Shake Your Blood from his album Probot. Later, they (Lemmyand Gilmour) along with Billy Gibbons worked together in 2008 for a Christmas song Run Rudolph Run.
Although the song was also recorded by Billy Gibbons, however, Gibbons was not present with Grohl and Lemmy but his parts were recorded and added later. In 2011 Lemmy was in an interview where he revealed that Gibbons’ vocals were added later, furthermore, he also revealed that he is a big fan of Gibbons and it was really unfortunate that the two couldn’t meet even after working on the same project.
In the interview, he was asked about his favorite musician and he replied, “Let me see now, let me think. Favorite musicians. You know, I like Billy Gibbons, though I’ve never played with him.” After hearing him the interviewer asked, “Didn’t you record the Christmas song ‘Run, Rudolph, Run’ with Gibbons and Dave Grohl?” Lemmy then answered, “oh yeah, we did that, but Billy wasn’t there. He put his lead on later. It was just me and Dave that did the tracks.”
Moreover, in the interview, he was also asked if he accepts his band as a metal band or not and he said that he does not accept it. He further said that he will not accept it because it is not true, his band is a rock band because they do various things that metal bands can’t do. And certainly, he talked about various other things and if you want to check what more he talked about then you can check the link we have added above.
Well, it was really unfortunate that he could not meet Gibbons, however, it is more unfortunate that Lemmy Kilmister, one of the great vocalists of the rock music industry is not with us anymore. A few years ago on December 28, 2015, Lemmy passed away in Los Angeles, California, United States.
He was diagnosed with prostate cancer however, he died of arrhythmia. Lemmy was 70 years old when he died, in fact, he died only four days after his seventieth birthday. Furthermore, many artists paid tribute to the late Motörhead vocalist, Grohl even went to his funeral and gave a little speech. And Motörhead got disbanded after his death, Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell announced the news a day after Lemmy’s death.
