“I Have A Cunning Plan…” Blackadder Rides Again

It was August 23, 2015, when Sir Tony Robinson, also known as S.

The only problem is Hugh [Laurie]’s fee. He’s a […]

Always On His Feet, Never On His Knees – Lemmy

Yes, it sounds unbelievable. Almost a year has passed since Ian Fraser Kilmister left this world. What, who? Well, you know… Lemmy. I don’t know which fact seems more awkward – that he’s been gone for almost a year. Or that he died at all. I mean, it’s Lemmy, right? All of us had high hopes that he will somehow manage to cheat on the Grim Ripper himself! So, it’s not surprising that many of the “Motörhead” fans couldn’t believe the news of his death. The others, more pragmatic ones, said: “Well, it’s a miracle it didn’t happen before.” All of us love Lemmy, but he was notorious for his lifestyle. In a 2013 interview for “Classic Rock” magazine Lemmy said he’d never expected to make it past 30. “Death is an inevitability, isn’t it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don’t worry about it. I am ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn’t complain. It’s been good.” Well, he made it to 70! Too hard-core to die young, some might say, and they would just be right. Yes, I love “Motörhead”. I love their music. But when did I love Lemmy the most? It was when he guest-starred in a video game “Brutal Legend”. His laid back performance of the “Kill Master” was fantastic, and he presented himself and his music to the generations which maybe would never have heard of “Motörhead” if it wasn’t for this game. A man. A legend. A brutal legend!
