(Metal Hammer) Metallica frontman James Hetfield says it's "really, really important" to have Motorhead inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame following the death of icon Lemmy.

The British band have been eligible since 2002 but remain unelected, alongside several notable artists who might have been expected to have been bestowed the honor.

But the Metallica man, who entered the Rock Hall in 2009, believes there's an added urgency in Lemmy's case. Hetfield tells 95.5 KLOS: "There are so many great bands that haven't been acknowledged - and if they do or don't, it's not up to me.

"It's just a nod, a tip of the cap. What does it really mean to be in there? I don't know. But to some of these bands it might mean the world. With the passing of Lemmy, it's really, really important for me to see Motorhead acknowledged in that - because there's no more rock'n'roll person on this planet than Lemmy." Read more here.
