Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 24, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

From the Motörhead facebook timeline:

ONE THING Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do over their years together in Motörhead, was grab a favourite song by another artist and give it a good old-fashioned ‘Motörheading’. To run them through the Motörizer if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge.

In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release Under Cöver, a collection of some of their best covers, and a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes”. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.

Under Cöver will be released on September 1st, 2017.

Motörhead Under Cöver – Track Listing:

  1. Breaking the Law (Judas Priest) 2008
  2. God Save the Queen (The Sex Pistols) 2000
  3. Heroes (David Bowie) 2015
  4. Starstruck (Rainbow) 2014
  5. Cat Scratch Fever (Ted Nugent) 1992
  6. Jumpin’ Jack Flash (The Rolling Stones) 2001
  7. Sympathy for the Devil (The Rolling Stones) 2015
  8. Hellraiser (Ozzy Osbourne) 1992
  9. Rockaway Beach (Ramones) 2002
  10. Shoot ‘Em Down (Twisted Sister) 2001

LONG LIVE THE LEGACY OF MOTÖRHEAD.

REST IN PEACE, LEMMY, PHILTHY and WURZEL.

Lemmy Kilmister Of Motörhead – Rest In Peace, Our Metal Icon

Posted in classic rock, Metal with tags , , , , on December 28, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Lemmy Kilmister - publicity - cooking promo

As reported on the Official Motörhead Facebook:

There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.

We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness, there aren’t words.

We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please…play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD. 
Have a drink or few.

Share stories.

Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.

HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT.

Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister

1945 -2015

Born to lose, lived to win.

Please feel free to post your condolences, well wishes and memories here:

Stone Says: Tremendously sad news. Goodbye, Lemmy. Thank you for the Rock ‘N Roll. I will forever spread the word of Motörhead. The Metal and Rock ‘N Roll world will truly never be the same without Lemmy.

I’ll never forget seeing Motörhead for the first time live, it was one of my most magical Metal moments I’ve experienced, back in the mid 80’s. I saw concert fans tussle and struggle to take ownership of Lemmy’s cigarette butt; one in which he flicked into the crowd. I watched Lemmy play bass and sing Killed By Death, Jailbait and Ace Of Spades, only 20 or so feet away from me, in an overcrowded West Hartford Ballroom, in West Hartford, Connecticut. Slayer later headlined. With a couple of minor bruises, I stunk of cigarette smoke, sweat and beer after leaving that show. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Former MOTÖRHEAD Drummer PHIL “PHILTHY ANIMAL” TAYLOR – REST IN PEACE

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , on November 12, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Motorhead - Stones Book - #MO33777LKPAFEC

Shown above: A Motörhead book I own, chronicling the classic era of Motörhead. From L to R: Lemmy Kilmister, Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor and “Fast” Eddie Clarke.

__________________________

As reported on the Official Motörhead Facebook:

Lil’ Philthy…he who once shouted ‘stop wincing about’ on an album…he who fueled many a young boy’s punk/metal hairstyles…he who played the drums with fury and intent…he who liked to call people ‘wazzocks’ once in a while…friend, Roman, Derbyshireman…rest in peace…with much love…

Stone Says:

The staff of Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family, Motörhead and friends of Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor.

Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor has now joined Michael Burston aka Würzel up in Rock ‘N Roll Heaven, as the only two Motörhead family members that have passed away way too young. This influential drummer played on a  dozen or so (proper) Motörhead albums and is regarded as a true legend of Rock ‘N Roll by countless fans and peers. I never did get to see Philthy Animal Taylor play live and that is unfortunate. I saw Motörhead in concert after the classic era of this iconic band.

I remember my very first taste of Motörhead was a live bootleg recording of the band; a recording I cherished on a beaten up 8 track tape back around 1982 or so. I never heard anything so awful and yet so wonderful in my life, courtesy of that messed up 8 track. From then on, it has been a love affair I have for Motörhead that I can never let go of.

Above: Motörhead Ace Of Spades studio album from 1980. Shown L to R: Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor, Lemmy Kilmister and “Fast” Eddie Clarke, the classic era of Motörhead.

As I write this post, one of my favorite Motörhead songs of all-time has begun to play in my brain: One Track Mind. I guess I always assumed that Rock Gods like Philthy Animal Taylor would live forever, it’s always that way for me, unfortunately. Philthy Animal Taylor will live on though, through those classic era Motörhead albums and his musical works that followed.

REST IN PEACE, PHIL “PHILTHY ANIMAL” TAYLOR.

LONG LIVE MOTÖRHEAD.
