Duff McKagan Sings Lemmy's Praises

(hennemusic) Motorhead and, in particular, Lemmy, influenced a young Duff McKagan at a point in his life where it mattered greatly…and still does, all these years later.

McKagan writes about "Lemmy," the movie, and Lemmy, the icon, in his latest blog for Seattle Weekly. Here's a taste: When I moved down to L.A. in 1984, it was the influence of guys like Lemmy, Phil Lynott, and The Clash's Paul Simonon that steered me to choose bass, back when I was still a somewhat able drummer and guitar player. I was going to Hollywood to sort of "invent" myself, and I chose bass playing as the coolest of the rock-instrument triumvirate because, hell, it was the baddest choice back then (to me at least).

And it wasn't just my choice of playing bass that Lemmy and Motorhead influenced. Dare I say that without Motorhead, there would have been no Metallica, GN'R, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, NIN, or everything between and after. Yeah, they mean that much. more on this story
