I wonder what Lemmy's thoughts are regarding OP. After all he went back to the studio with a totally changed lineup, that would go on to establish Motorhead and build a solid fanbase, and rerecorded almost every song to release it as the bands official debut. I always wondered how he felt, esp given that OP was deemed commercially unviable by UA until the band had released a few albums that did actually sell a little, and then it was released simple to capitalise on the bands rising poularity.
As per the whole 'heavy metal' thing. Let it go FFS.
In Lemmy's book if I remember correctly, he said On Parole is first album, but in 1977 they didn't know if this On parole will be ever released thats why they recorded almost all songs from On Parole again on "Motorhead". About 'heavy metal' thing; Why don't you tell Lemmy to stop? He started. On every concert "We are Motorhead and we play rnr" remember? I agree with him, but obviously metal fans hate this only. If he doesnt stop, why should I?
