If someone points San Gopal, Rockin Vicars and Hawkwind to me I wouldn´t never listen Motorhead... since there´s nothing related... apart Lemmy be a member of them.
I must answer on this one. Nothing related????!!!!!! Are you really a Motorhead fan? Except very very similar melody between Sam Gopal "Sky is burning" and "Dead and gone" song, Motorhead was MADE from Hawkwind and Pink Fairies style. Half first album On parole are songs from Hawkwind and Pink Fairies, and almost on most of "Motorhead" album too, same as next semi-official three live albums before Overkill. Nothing in common????!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone here from Croatia would NEVER LISTEN Motorhead without this connection from this extreme good bands from the past, as far as those people I know. Except maybe metal fans. But I don't recognize them as real Motorhead fans. EVEN THEY ARE about 50% of all Motor "fans" on this planet. I'm saying this because I can smell on many miles away comment from metal fan. We are different, don't take this personal. Only thing is, Lemmy is on my side, because I talk the same thing and see Motorhead on the same way like he, and that's rnr band and all that what I wrote here. SO, you are not only against me, you are against Lemmy too. Because what is a difference between me and Lemmy if we talk the same about what Motorhead is? Real Motorhead soul started to grow from Rockin Vickers (Lemmy), Sam Gopal, Hawkwind and then Motorhead (and Larry original line up, P. Fairies). If you don't know what is in common, for me than you are not real Motorhead fan. Sorry.
