Lemmy (Motörhead) - The Movie

A major event is going to take place soon. A documentary of Lemmy, the legendary frontman of the British band Motörhead has been filmed and is about to hit theatres all over the world very soon. In fact, the first screenings have already started in the U.K.
This documentary film features a behind-the-scenes look at the life of Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, where the filmmakers followed Lemmy around for three years, capturing his essence and sides of him that many Motörhead fans may not be aware of. With heavy hitters like Dave Grohl, Henry Rollins, Thornton and members of Metallica weighing on Lemmy's sphere of influence in heavy metal, it crystallizes what Lemmy means to his community of fans. It won't show us Ian Fraser Kilmister; it will show us Lemmy, because that is who he is.
As the very trailer says: Over the past 40 years, Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister has registered an immeasurable impact on rock music, while becoming synonymous with the rock'n'roll lifestyle. Having continued to tour and record into his sixties , Lemmy has become a godfather of heavy metal, and an inspiration to countless musicians. Says Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters/Nirvana: "If anyone deserves to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it's Lemmy. Gimme a fuckin' break!

I really do want to see this, and the trailer really looks quite promising. For those who like Lemmy/Motörhead at least just a little bit, I think that we'll be having a great time watching this:
