Featured Guest Star: Lemmy Kilmister
Motorhead - the name alone stands on it's own, a band that lives according to their own rules. A band that has never sacrificed anything and has always remained true to what they are. Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee - what you see is what you get! Lemmy's enthronement as an Icon of Rock happened a while ago and proves that Rock and Roll is alive and exhilarating. (On June 16th Lemmy received the Mojo Icon Award).
Lemmy is the undisputed head, gruff and with the typical British humour (despite calling L.A. his home for more than 18 years). Motorhead is without a doubt one of the most respected rock bands in the world and made it clear to everyone when they finally received a well deserved Grammy in 2005 for Best Metal Performance.
In the spring of 2010, the band will commence work on their as-yet untitled new album. This will be Lemmy's first appearance at Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp, and we are thrilled to have him on board!
