I've been browsing for months but finally registered.
I'm MHB 3530, Fabio to most others, and though a relatively new fan already a big fan of the band.
The more I know about Lemmy and Motorhead, the more I admire them. Every album has its gems and hardly anyone is as wise and entertaining in interviews as Lemmy.
My first Motorhead concert was on last Fall's tour, and already I was well impressed by the merch. Never before have I seen a solution as practical as signed drum heads and sticks on sale at the merch stand. As I play the drums as well, this was mega.
I've seen the Lemmy movie more than once now, so getting to meet so many people from there (band, crew, guests of the band) at the VIP do last week in Tampa was an amazing experience. The guys are the definition of genuine, so no expectations were left unmet. I got to tell them what I wanted (e.g. thanked Mikkey for the merch thing) and left with the memorabilia and memories I only had a vague idea of. There's more to the story, but I think those who know know.
I dislike the fact that I'm late to the party, so to speak, but then many rock icons died before I was born, so it's a good thing we still have one sane icon left in Lemmy.
