Motorhead Hit or Miss With Bomber

(Classic Rock) Lemmy and at least two other members of Motorhead have endured a rough ride at the hands of their Bomber stage prop.

The aluminum lighting rig first appeared in 1979 and was the first-ever rig capable of movement. Since then it's made regular appearances above the band, including on their current world tour. But while it's a fan favourite, Motorhead don't always feel the same way about the device.

Lemmy tells Zippo how a 'flight' in the bomber set him on a war footing with a roadie: "I once got in it on the encore at Nottingham Royal Theatre. He lifted it up. I had a curly lead that was stretched straight and it was pulling me out of the plane.

"I thought, 'You bastard if you get me down from here alive I'll f**king kill you.' He lowered my down, but he'd gone. He was out the building before I got on the floor."
