MOTÖRHEAD Guitarist Says 'Lemmy' Movie Is 'Really Insulting'

December 21, 2010

Radio Metal recently conducted an interview with MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Phil Campbell. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

On why he and MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee rarely appear in "Lemmy" (full title: "Lemmy: 49% Motherfucker 51% Son Of A Bitch"),the recently completed documentary which examines the life and career of MOTÖRHEAD mainman Lemmy Kilmister:

Phil: "Speak to the movie people! That's what we're pissed off about. They spent three years following me around and Mikkey around, all of us, you know, three fucking years and the biggest shot they got of me is laying down to sleep in the bus with 'Familly Guy' on the TV! (Laughs) The movie's about Lem, but it's really insulting to us. What a bunch of cunts!"

On the possibility of the next MOTÖRHEAD release being a covers album :

Phil: "I had the idea to do an acoustic album. We might also do a cover album. Our next album might be this album of cover. We've done loads of these. We've done 'Cat Scratch Fever', we've done 'Shoot 'Em Down' by TWISTED SISTER, 'Hellraiser' by OZZY OSBOURNE, 'God Save The Queen' by the SEX PISTOLS, we got 'Rockaway Beach' by the RAMONES and more. But this album is just an idea for the future, we don't know yet what's going to be on it."

On the book he just began to write :

Phil: "I'm doing my book at the moment; it's going to contain a lot of funny stories . . . It's a book about all the fucking unbelievable shit that goes down on the road. (Laughs) Funny stuff, yeah. It's not going to be about my life story, that's boring! But we don't know yet when it's going to be released. We're starting it now, but I guess we can expect it to be out in about three years."
