After this point I was trying to get my hands on anything Motorhead I could watching documentaries, live concerts and interviews. My life had been consumed by a band and their music, lifestyle and views on life its self.
I had always toyed with the idea of a Motorhead tattoo but wasn't really sure what I wanted or where to put it. I brought the idea up to Jordan one day and he to agreed that it was a good idea and decided that the war pig would be very appropriate to get on the ankle. On a Sunday in December I joined the lifetime Motorhead fan club and listened to No Sleep Till Hammersmith while I was covered with my lifetime commitment.
On a winter December night Jordan, Jim and myself had decided to sit down at the kitchen table and listen to records and indulge in some beers. The record player was going playing all kinds of different songs. Jordan had gotten Jim a bottle of Jack Daniels for Christmas and had proceeded to open it up and pour shots for the table. Things began to liven up and got to the point of chugging straight from the bottle. Then Jordan put the No Sleep Till Hammersmith on and the house went mental. We finished the entire bottle and had the amp cranked to max the house was shaking and we were screaming with Lemmy.
That afternoon I was delivered with the news that Lemmy had past away that evening. I was traumatized it was as if I had lost a family member. Then I began to think how strange it was that we had smashed a bottle of jack and blown Jordans amp and speakers listening to that album it was if Lemmy was right there partying with us.
I guess you could say that this is a thank you to Lemmy and Phil and Eddie for creating something so amazing and changing my life. Lemmy you will always be considered a god to me and the world will not be same without you and your bass.
Hoping your living fast and loose up there.
