I have a covers band, BROKEN BIT, here in Guadalajara, Mexico (Motörhead's coming down in May 2013!) and we've been doing "Ace Of Spades" for a while now. As amazing as it sounds, and being in a large city with a large metal community, no bands before us did any covers of them!!! Yep, and believe me, Motörhead is REVERED down here, yet no local band that I know of ever did a Motörhead cover before us. I've been a fan since December 1982, when I first saw the "Iron Fist" video. I was hooked for life and eventually, hadn't it been for Motörhead I'd probably never been a fan of thrash or hardcore punk!
Here's a youtube clip of us rehearsing. I'm the ugly fucker who plays guitar and sings (well, sort of sings).
My original songs band, DRAKSEN, will be on the same bill as Motörhead this year so it's like a dream come true. I might even meet the man. I'm already shitting my pants!
Enjoy the clip!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2i3ATyKEfrw
