Description

BETTER MOTORHEAD THAN DEAD - LIVE AT HAMMERSMITH rekindles memories of a momentous night that even a cosmopolitan city like London doesn't see every day. Early June 2005 saw the long queue in front of the venerable Hammersmith Odeon, a venue of many legendary live shows - stretch right to tube station on the other side of the road. What was going on ? Motorhead had invited their fans to their 30th anniversary party, and over 5,000 of them accepted. Their number would have been greater had the powers that be in the British capitol not rigorously limited the capacity of the illustrious venue. Loved by their fans, respected by the press due to personal integrity of the three band members, Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, Motorhead were experiencing their seventh or eighth spring in the 30th year of their existence and continued to be as generous as ever.

Profile
Motörhead /ˈmoʊtərhɛd/ was an English rock band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser Kilmister (d 28/12/2015), professionally known by his stage name Lemmy, who had remained the sole constant member. The band are often considered a precursor to, or one of the earliest members of, the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, which re-energised heavy metal in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Despite this, Lemmy had always dubbed their music as simply "rock and roll".

To its end, Motörhead had released twenty-three studio albums, ten live recordings, twelve compilation albums and five EPs. Usually a power trio, they had particular success in the early 1980s with several successful singles in the UK Top 40 chart. The albums Overkill, Bomber, Ace of Spades, and particularly No Sleep 'til Hammersmith, cemented Motörhead's reputation as a top-tier rock band. As of 2012, Motörhead have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide.

Motörhead are typically classified as heavy metal, and their fusion of punk rock into the genre helped to pioneer speed metal and thrash metal. Their lyrics typically covered such topics as war, good versus evil, abuse of power, promiscuous sex, substance abuse, and, most famously, gambling. The name "Motörhead" is a reference to users of the drug amphetamine. The band's distinctive fanged-face logo, with its oversized boar's tusks, chains, and spikes, was created by artist Joe Petagno in 1977 for the cover of the Motörhead album and has appeared in many variations on covers of ensuing albums. The fanged face has been referred to variously as "War-Pig" and "Snaggletooth". The band is ranked number 26 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.

When Lemmy Kilmister died in December 2015, Mickey Dee declared that Motörhead (officially) is disbanded. No more tours or albums will be made. Only the brand will survive for the future.
