actually, few days ago i finished with second reading of white line fever and there was one thing that i noticed exclusively because of this endless fighting about what is motorhead and that is this:
in one part of book lemmy himself says that he doesn't get it why poeple bash metal, because it's one of best/purest (don't remember exact word) forms of rock'n'roll.
so i think it preaty much explains his statement on this theme
but still, with or without his words, this is probably most pointless fight ever, we can go in circle forever. there will always be someone that will say that lemmy stands for rock n roll, and then some other dude will say something like i did the start of my post and on and on and on
And in this his statement he said that about metal but he didnt say Motorhead is metal exactly did he?
