No Show Opened Door For Motorhead's Lemmy

.
(Rock AAA) Motorhead hero Lemmy discovered his instrument by accident when a Hawkwind bassist failed to turn up for a gig. And he says it's a good thing too because he was never very good on guitar.

In a video interview with The Quietus Lemmy explains: "I was mediocre at guitar. I couldn't play lead to save my life, or yours. I went for a job with Hawkwind as a guitar player but they didn't need one.

"The bass player didn't show up because it was a free gig, but like an idiot he left his bass in the gear van. It was like, 'Please steal my gig,' so I stole his gig.
