Remember Lemmy only got into Hawkwind because when Dave Brock if anyone played bass Dik Mik said that Lemmy did. Lemmy is said to have commented that Dik Mik was a cunt for saying so! Nil Turner then asked Lemmy to make noises in E... The rest is history. It is entirely possible Lemmy could have been up for the audition with Hendrix, particularly as he was known to him for scoring acid just three years before while Lemmy roadies for him. Noel Redding was chosen for his look rather than his bass-playing ability - and, just like Lemmy had been an average guitarist before, not a bassist. Someone should photoshop some period pictures to see what this collaboration. One thing is for, if Hendrix had lived and Lemmy had been in - Hendrix would not have pursued the jazz direction he was leaning towards at the time.
