Drinking With Motorhead's Lemmy Almost Sidetracked Warlock's Career
Doro tells MetalSucks: "I was rehearsing with the band before, and decided to go around the corner. There was a pub and it was my first time in one. I went in and saw Lemmy sitting there smoking, with a whiskey and cola in one hand. I was just like, 'Wow!' I couldn't speak English well back then, so I was a little nervous. But we were chain-smoking and drinking - and after a while he reminded me I had to play a gig."
Doro "had such a buzz" as a result of the alcohol, and that everyone was waiting for her when she got back to the venue. "I got up with the band, and I had had so many drinks I couldn't remember the lyrics," she says. "Everyone was staring in shock - the agencies and important people - and I just sat down and waited until the band was done.
"Everyone was telling me I ruined my career, I'd never get a record deal. I said, 'I met Lemmy! He's my hero, my idol and we had a few whiskey colas.'" Read more here.
