That time I asked Lemmy what he liked to do in his spare time when he wasn’t touring with Mötorhead or making albums

By Steve Newton

That Lemmy: what a character.

I got to interview the metal legend a couple of times before he left us in 2015 for that Great Gig in the Sky, the first time being in the previous century–back in April of 1999.

That was just a month after the release of Mötorhead’s sixth live album, Everything Louder Than Everything Else, which I seem to recall lived up to its name.

At one point in the interview I asked the 53-year-old badass what he liked to do in his spare time, and his answer was typical Lemmy: honest and blunt. Pretty funny too.

Have a listen:
