MOTÖRHEAD's LEMMY, MIKKEY DEE Interviewed At 'Lemmy' Premiere; Video Available

HeinekenMusic.ie conducted several short interviews at the March 15, 2010 premiere of "Lemmy" — the long-awaited documentary examining the life and career of MOTÖRHEAD front man and rock icon Lemmy Kilmister — during the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival at the historic Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas. Watch the footage below.

Check out reviews of the film: Inside Pulse Movies, Hollywood Reporter.

"Lemmy" directors/producers Greg Olliver and Wes Orshoski spent three years following Kilmister around the globe — from his Hollywood home to the hockey arenas of Russia.

"Lemmy" features appearances by such high-profile Kilmister friends/peers as METALLICA, Dave Grohl, Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, Billy Bob Thornton and pro wrestler Triple H.

Hailed as a godfather of heavy metal, 64-year-old Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister has established himself as the living embodiment of rock and roll over the past four decades. After stints with popular Mersey beat band THE ROCKIN' VICKERS and influential psychedelic rockers HAWKWIND, and even a brief time spent as a member of Jimi Hendrix's road crew, Lemmy formed MOTÖRHEAD in 1975.

Going on to record such influential metal classics as "Overkill", "Ace of Spades" and "Bomber", the Grammy Award-winning MOTÖRHEAD and Kilmister's fusion of punk and metal registered a major influence on such bands as METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES and NIRVANA.

Says FOO FIGHTERS leader and ex-NIRVANA drummer Dave Grohl, "If anyone deserves to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it's Lemmy. Give me a fuckin' break!"

2010 marks the 35th anniversary of the birth of MOTÖRHEAD, which features Kilmister, guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee.

A trailer for "Lemmy" can be viewed below.
