Things I Learned From the Lemmy Documentary.
Lemmy 66 years old. He still rocks harder than anyone you know. And looks better doing it.
He pays $900 a month for his rent controlled apartment on the Sunset Strip. From the looks of it, it’s maybe 2 bedroom, about 900 square feet.
He never stops writing music.
He is a history/war buff. He knows everything.
If you make a clay “statue” of Lemmy and give it to him at a show, he will keep it forever.
He is one of the nicest guys alive, evidenced by the fact that he can hang around with Nikki Sixx and not punch him.
He loves slot machines and countertop touchscreen bar games, and will sit for hours at his favorite spot, Rainbow Bar.
He has no plans to slow down.
Also, his baby’s momma lost her virginity to John Lennon, wanted Paul, and was wanted by George, and then had a son with Lemmy. Wrap your head around that for a second.
Favorite quote was from his son: “When I was like 17 my father came up to me and said whatever you do, don’t do Cocaine.
