Before the “VIP Experience” question and answer session WASPNovember 26 concert at The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida, frontman Blackie lawless He was asked about his late memory MOTÖRHEAD fairy tale Ian “Lemmy” Kimster. He said (as transcribed BLABBERMOUTH.NET):”[He was] A very complex individual. He was human, like everyone else, but he had moments of real danger. And I won’t go into detail, because it wouldn’t be fair to him. But I know him well. And we had some fun times together. But like everyone else… I mean, there was a very public feud between us in the 90s that was nothing.
“he was Very much complicated” Blackie he repeated. “All artists to some extent – some are better than others, I think, and I put them in the category of ‘some are better than others.’ But you didn’t see it. Everything Who was.
“I’ll tell you a funny story about him.” Lawless Added. “The last show we did together was two years ago. We were in Romania. We were playing this festival. And it was just right. Godless Hot. Someone said – because they measure everything in Celsius but they tried to figure out what it is in Fahrenheit. It was about 105 [degrees]. And I knew – ’cause he and I, we were on a plane together the day before, and I knew he wasn’t doing well. So I was worried about him. And when I got off the stage, they were going after us… and I dragged myself into the dressing room and said, ‘Listen, you’ve got to make sure you drink today.’ I said yes Unbelievably It’s hot there. You have to make sure you have fluids in you.’ I will look at it now. He is sitting at the table. He has a half-eaten Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, which may not seem like a big deal to you, but they don’t sell Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in Romania. So I don’t know where he got it. Half a glass of Jack and Coke is filled with ice. And he held the glass up to me, and he went, ‘I’m going to stay hydrated. I have a lot of snowflakes in this glass’ and I put my hands up. I go, ‘Why am I wasting my breath?’ I go, ‘I’m telling you, you have to stay…’ and I turn around and walk out.

It was supposed to be a co-headline, but it wasn’t [Blackie] He was actually closing the show, because he did such a bad thing in the scene, right?! Because he killed a fake pig with a fake sword and cut up pillows and threw feathers all over the stage, it wasn’t worth getting upset when he was done and I wasn’t playing. [on] it is. So he closed the show every night. And it was… I don’t know what it was Blackie. I’ve known him 20 years, you know, and for the first five years he was walking past us on stage – not a ‘hello’, nothing, no acknowledgement. [us]. And he’s still got the cellulite, old ass hanging off the ends, and he’s got this microphone with a handle – ‘ Blackie lawless Complete exercise.’ And at one gig we had to share a dressing room – well, there was only one dressing room – so we were like, ‘Okay, we’ll go ahead and then we’ll take it out quickly and then you can use it. it is.’ So we came back from the stage soaking wet to find all our clothes thrown in the hallway. So at that point we said ‘Fuck off’ and left the tour. It was always two hours before… The first team and us, it was an hour and a half before they went on, because he had cheap workers who didn’t know what they were doing.
