MOTÖRHEAD Icon LEMMY Focus Of First Episode Of 'Dead Rock Stars' Podcast

May 18, 2018

"Dead Rock Stars" is a new enlightening yet wholly amusing podcast presented by former Classic Rock editor and star Kerrang! writer Mick Wall and music author Joel McIver. Between them, these two rock writers have written over 50 books on music and contributed to dozens of publications. The new podcast, produced by 7digital — whose resumé includes Bruce Dickinson's "Rock Show" and "Radcliffe And Maconie" for BBC 6 Music — celebrates Wall and McIver's combined decades of experience in rock writing, with the stated objective of revealing to listeners exactly what a particular deceased rocker was like in the flesh.

Episode 1 of "Dead Rock Stars" is devoted to everyone's favorite departed headbanger and philosopher, Lemmy. The MOTÖRHEAD founder, lifelong bon vivant and lover of groupies and PG Wodehouse left this mortal plane in 2015. McIver spent much quality time with the great man in the 1990s and 2000s, locked in debate about the political and cultural issues of the day; Wall worked with Lemmy for many years and knew him as well as anyone possibly could without actually being physically intimate with the fellow.

"Dead Rock Stars: Lemmy" follows McIver and Wall down the rabbit hole of HAWKWIND, MOTÖRHEAD, acid and speed marathons and the contentious issue of nutrition during fellatio. Oh, and this podcast is NSFW... very NSFW.
