Reiter Does "Wall Of Love" For Lemmy

When Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Germany's craziest metal bunch, played at the With Full Force festival at the beginning of July, they sent some special "Get well soon!" greetings to Motorhead frontman Lemmy, who had to be taken to the hospital before the same weekend.

Here's what they did: Die Apokalyptischen Reiter counted "1-2-3-Cuddle!" – and 15,000 fans hugged the life out of each other! The original "Wall Of Love," especially for one of Rock'n'Roll's greatest!

Now, who says metal fans do not have a heart?
