Personal Quote:

It really bothers me when I hear myself being called the one who started all this thrash shit. I think they're trying to make it a compliment, but considering some of the music I'm hearing, I don't know if it is. Motorhead never set out to start a trend - we were there to go against all the trends. The fact that we might have started something like that makes me feel a little scared. See more »
