MOTÖRHEAD Frontman On Career Highs And Lows

Keith Carmen of Canada's Exclaim! magazine recently conducted an interview with MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister. A few excerpts from the chat follow below.

Exclaim!: What have been your career highs and lows?

Lemmy: "The high was probably going straight in at number one [for their 1981 live album 'No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith']. The low was probably just after it. You couldn't do another live album to go straight in at number one, could you?"

Exclaim!: What do you think of when you think of Canada?

Lemmy: "That large country just above the States and to one side of Russia. Canada's always a great place for us. We've always had a good time up there and people are great."

Exclaim!: What was the first LP/cassette/CD/eight track you ever bought with your own money?

Lemmy: "'The Buddy Holly Story' on vinyl."

Exclaim!: What has been your strangest celebrity encounter?

Lemmy: "[EAGLES guitarist] Joe Walsh once tapped me on the shoulder in a bar at the CMJ Convention. He said, 'I've wanted to meet you for a long time,' then turned around and walked away from me. Very strange. I never saw him again. But what an incredible introduction, huh?"
