Everyone knows that Lemmy was once a roadie on a 1967 UK package tour involving the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
However, I watched the documentary "Jimmy Hendrix - The Guitar Hero" which features many famous musicians recalling their memories of Hendrix back in the day. Lemmy has a fair bit of screen time and right at the end, he claims that he had arranged to audition for the bass slot in Jimi's band, 2 days before Hendrix died.
Surely Lem was pulling our legs here? After all, Jimi died in 1970 and Lemmy has always said he had never played bass before upon joining Hawkwind in 1971.
