Artist Bio
Motorhead1975: After being fired from Hawkwind, Lemmy Kilmister decides to form a band called Bastard. When his manager informs him that a band by that name will never get a slot on "Top of the Pops," he changes it to Motorhead. The lineup consists of Lemmy on bass and vocals, Larry Wallace on guitar and Lucas Fox on drums. The band hits the studio by the end of the year, and during the recording sessions, Lucas is replaced by Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor.1977: Motorhead (Chiswick) is the band's first album to see the light of day. The guys' fan base builds and they start earning a reputation for being very loud, raw, dirty and all those good things heavy rock 'n' roll should be.1980: After touring Europe and appearing on "Top of the Pops" for the umpteenth time (maybe that manager did have a point), the band teams up with Vic Maile for perhaps their best known studio album, Ace of Spades . The record peaks at number 4 in the charts. The accident-prone Philthy ends the year by breaking his neck while engaging in a bit of horseplay with a large Irish fan.1982: The guys begin the year by recording Iron Fist , which they produce themselves. The record sells well and they return to their natural habitat - the road. There is trouble in paradise, however, and Fast Eddie leaves the band during their second U.S. tour, not long after Lemmy records the Tammy Wynette song, "Stand By Your Man" with Wendy 0. Williams. To replace him, Motorhead enlists Brian "Robbo" Robertson from Thin Lizzy. They conquer Japan and re-conquer Europe.1987: Motorhead performs in Eat the Rich, the black comedy by the makers of the English TV show The Young Ones (a show the band appeared on frequently). Lemmy has a featured role in the movie, and Motorhead also records the soundtrack album. Just before filming starts, Pete Gill leaves the band and Philthy returns. They record an album with title that says it all: Rock ?N? Roll.1991: 1916 is released and it's Motorhead's best album in years. The band goes through a couple more managers and play the "Operation Rock 'n' Roll" tour with Judas Priest and Alice Cooper-a review calls our boys "the tangy mustard in an otherwise bland noise sandwich." An appearance on The Tonight Show' - the first time a heavy band is featured-adds to their already rock-solid credibility. Lemmy writes lyrics for four songs on Ozzy Osbourne's No More Tears album.1996: After the usual world-wide trek, the group settles back into the studio once again to create yet another slab of sheer volume and power for CMC. The past 21 years have contained glorious highs and dastardly lows, but absolutely nothing can stop Motorhead.
