I first saw Motorhead in Aberdeen with Saxon supporting in the late 70's.
I then went to uni in Edinburgh in 1980 and saw the Iron Fist Tour. This was in a massive old cinema. The support band came and went and they shut the old cinema curtains.
Cheers went up.
Nothing there. Just this masssive gauntlet opening and closing to a fist. An Iron Fist.
AND THEN Motorhead came down from the ceiling !!!!
The whole fucking stage lifted up on steel cables 50 - 60 feet.
The crowd went mental.
I have seen them nearly every UK tour since then.
I lived in Southend for a long time and saw them there and in Cambridge and in London.
I now live in Margate and saw them last year in Southampton and this year in Brixton.
You know what ? Once I get my ticket I still look so forwrd to seeing them again.
I first saw Motorhead when i was 17. I am now 50. I have a good well paid job and my life is pretty good. But the only thing constant in it has been Motorhead.
Girlfriends come and go.
Friends move away.
But for me Motorhead, actually Lemmy, has always been there.
So when some twat comes on this forum and says that he "only lives a half hour from Brixton" and he can't be bothered going to see them .... I am glad .... REALLY GLAD ... cos it means a real fan got the pricks ticket !!
i've been saying exactly
the same thing on this forum for
fuckin years mate !!! spot on !!
similiar age & experiences might have
been sepertated at birth
