HAWKWIND: Henry Rollins meets Lemmy


    Henry Rollins: Musical Elitism Is For Lightweights

    [Look for your weekly fix from the one and only Henry Rollins right here on West Coast Sound every Thursday, and come back tomorrow for the awesomely annotated playlist for his Sunday KCRW broadcast.]
    A few days ago, I spent an afternoon with Lemmy. For the few who might not know that name, Lemmy is the bass player, vocalist and founding member of a band called Motörhead. The man has waged war on people’s hearing for decades.

    Not only does Lemmy keep Motörhead alive and well, assaulting multigenerational audiences who possess brain cells yet to be obliterated, he was also in one of the greatest bands of all time, Hawkwind. They were true, visionary, sonic assassins.

    What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

    Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
