Motörhead vocalist Lemmy Kilmister spoke with Australia's Time Off magazine about how fans have gone to extremes to show their devote to the band, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary with shows in Australia alongside Mötley Crue. "One guy in Germany had the Motörhead logo tattooed down the whole of his back," he said. "They have 'em tattooed on their calves and on the side of their heads. I mean, that would have hurt! But people fall in love to Motörhead too. A couple in Germany called their daughter Lemmy because they met at one of our shows. We get a lot of young kids at our shows because we keep coming up with new records. We're not some dinosaur act. We're still huge in places where rock'n'roll still matters."

Speaking of old bastards in metal...

Did you all know Geezer Butler released a solo record?
I was at the store today perusing the selection and I came across a record w/ a band name of GZR... looked at the art, read the specs... then could only think of what a lame ass, unimaginative name he'd devised for the band.... *shakes head*.
