MOTÖRHEAD Mainman Pays Tribute To His Influences On 'Fool's Paradise'

MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister recently spoke to Billboard.com about the the debut disc from his rockabilly trio, THE HEAD CAT, "Fool's Paradise".

Featuring the likes of BUDDY HOLLY's "Peggy Sue Got Married" and JOHNNY CASH's "Big River", "Fool's Paradise" is Kilmister's tribute to the songs that he says gave rise to his life in music. Also including throaty covers of songs penned by Carl Perkins and the Eddie Cochran-associated "Cut Across Shorty", the disc features STRAY CATS alumnus Slim Jim Phantom on drums and Danny B. Harvey on guitar, bass and keyboards.

"Without those songs, there wouldn't be any MOTÖRHEAD," says Kilmister, who sings and plays acoustic guitar and harmonica on "Fool's Paradise". "Those are my influences right there. Heavy metal is what Eddie Cochran would be doing now if he was still around."
