Goofs

Metallica is seen playing at Lemmy's birthday in 1995, with the venue on screen referred to as "The Whiskey." As the venue is actually called the "Whisky-a-Go-Go," it should be spelled "Whisky," not "Whiskey." See more »

Quotes

David Grohl: More than any other rock musician, he is the baddest motherfucker in the world.

Lemmy is God
16 July 2010 | by abstain13See all my reviews

I got to see "Lemmy" last night at the Fantasia Film Festival and I loved it. Every second of it. I mean, I've been a Motorhead fan for over two decades now and always liked Lemmy, but after watching this film and having the chance to see the man in his natural habitat and all that, I love the guy a thousand fold more (no, not sexually). He is Rock n' roll.

We had the two film makers do a Q&A afterwards, too, and the stories we heard we're just as funny. Zakk Wylde getting so drunk that his interview was a complete waste of time... stuff like that hopefully will make the DVD extras set once it gets released. (Which they said themselves should be out just before Christmas 2010 in North America, by the way!!)

The near sold-out crowd was loud and laughed and cheered throughout... except when they booed the likes of Lars Ulrich and co., haha! Anyway... just go see the bloody film, OK?
