(Source: Lemmy the autobiography-White line fever) Ace of spades
"We had a tap dancing part in 'Ace of Spades' - you know, ding-dang-dangady. We always imagined ourselves tap-dancing at that point. I used gambing metaphors, mostly cards and dice - when it comes to that sort of thing, I'm more into the slot machines actually, but you can't really sing about spinning fruit and the wheels coming down. Most of this song's just poker, really: 'I know you've got to see me read 'em and weep','Dead man's hand again, aces and eights'-that was Wild Bill Hickock's hand when he got shot. To be honest, although 'Ace of Spades' is a good song, I'm sick to death of it now. Two decades on, whenever people think of Motorhead, they think 'Ace os Spades'. We didn't become fossilized after that record, you know. We've had quite a few good releases since then. But the fans want to hear it so we still play it every night. For myself, I've had enough of that song."
