Lemmy Saved the Day For Clutch


(Classic Rock) Clutch guitarist Tim Sult has recalled how Lemmy came to the rescue when Dan Maines' bass guitar was lost by an airline. Clutch and Motorhead were on the same bill at Germany's Rock IM Park in June of last year. But Maines' Rickenbacker bass was misplaced by the airline, leaving Clutch in a sticky situation.

Motorhead mainman Lemmy was quick to loan Maines one of his Rickenbacker basses, saving the day for the US rockers. Lemmy died in December of last year, just days after being diagnosed with cancer.

Sult tells UCR: "Last year we played a show with Motorhead where we flew into Germany and the airline lost our bass player's bass. Lemmy was actually cool enough to let him play one of his basses for our entire set. That's pretty much my favorite Lemmy story ever." Read more here.
