In other news, ANTHRAX were joined by MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee for a rendition of the latter band's "We Are The Road Crew" at the final concert of the two groups' European tour, which took place on Oct. 29 in Paris, France. "Lemmy had his mic stand and everything!" ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian wrote on the band's official web site. "When his bass kicked in, it was the loudest, heaviest thing ever! You killed my French friends. Thank you. And MOTÖRHEAD killed as well. They were tearing it up every night. So much energy comes off their stage. They're fucking MOTÖRHEAD and like Lemmy said every night, 'We're never going away.' Thanks for taking us out. We'd play with you anytime, anywhere. Every one of you a gentleman."
