Cool story I always tell in Lemmy threads.....some comic, just a year or so before Lemmy died, was in the green room at some comedy club and Lemmy happens to be there.  as is, of all people, Joni Mitchell.  The comic (he told the story on I think Marc Maron podcast) is like, "holy shiat, Lemmy and Joni Mitchell?  SHould I go say hi, or just leave them alone?"  he leaves them alone.

he then says, Lemmy goes over to Joni.  "Joni, loovv, good t'see yeh, 'ow yer fookin' doin?"  She laughs, they chat. Comic then says Lemmy notices a guitar, picks it up, and says to Joni, "cor, I've been tryin'ta learn fookin 'Hejira' for fookin' years!  'Ow the fook d'je play vuh fookin' thing?"  Joni takes the guitar, puts it in one of her weird Joni Mitchell tunings, and shows Lemmy.  Hands teh guitar to him, and starts teaching him.  "No, the third finger goes....yeah. there.  OK, now the first finger....no no no, it goes....there.  there you go.  and the strum pattern is....."

the comic:  "i am dying!  Joni Mitchell teaching Lemmy a song!  and who knew Lemmy was a Joni Mitchell fan!  Shouldnt someone be filming this?!?!?"

Not the first time I've seen this.  Won't be the last.

I mean, Lemmy punching the Overkill button?  Ozzy reading a spell from the Diary of a Madman to turn himself into a giant dragon thing to bite the head off of the bad guy bat creature?  The doing shots montage?  This is all just tremendous stuff.

I've been saying this for years. He was keeping a greater evil at bay.

If Lemmy is God, could he write a song that rocks so hard that he, himself, cannot play it?

There were stories about Lemmy scouring used bookstores on tour for Danielle Steel novels.

During Lemmy's eulogy Dave Grohl talked about their shared reverence for Little RIchard.

Henry Rollins told stories about Lemmy sending him books about WWII randomly after they became good friends.

The stories about Lemmy are just fantastic and I think a lot of things that he was into were the result of him essentially being awake from speed for long periods of time when no one else was around.  If it's 2 AM and you're the only one awake on tour and the only thing on the bus for you to read is some random book then, well, that's what you pick up to keep yourself busy.

Actually, I don't find it that hard to believe.  Most decent musicians are open to other genres of music, if for no other reason than to expand their horizons.  I think Lemmy was an intelligent sort, and you don't get that way by wearing blinders and sticking to your furrow.  I'd find it a little depressing if it turned out that he was only interested in the same kind of hard rock that he played.  That shows no curiosity or openness to other influences at all.

Lemmy was famous for introducing songs by saying, "We are Motorhead. We play ROCK N ROLL." He did NOT like being referred to as a "metal band". He loved Little Richard and Elvis as much as he did Metallica or anyone else.

one of the post-Jerry Grateful Dead tours, there was an article about the band rehearsing for the tour, with Bob Weir leading the band through GnR's "Welcome To the Jungle".  All the Deadhead fans were salivating;  "OMG someone please get this rehearsal tape leaked!!!!!"  never did.

and then around 2015 or so, Weir covered Clash's "Train In Vain" (London Calling?) for a few shows.  (It was fairly crap).

/he and Joe Strummer struck up an unlikely friendship, after sharing a bill in Jamaica in 1982.

Once they got to the point where they were able to pick opening acts, Strummer didn't mind giving acts that he liked, old and new, some exposure, a really healthy mix of sounds.  I don't know how many other bands and sounds the Clash turned me onto...everything from Mose Allison to Futura 2000.

fair point, but the 1982 Jamaica show was I think a 2-day festival.  meaning, I doubt Joe /the Clash "picked" the GD.  but i see your point.

I used to have a bootleg of the Clash's set.  Joe at one point says in a menacing tone (only he knows if he was joking) something like, "if you lot don't start dancing, I'll bring out vuh farking Grateful farking Dead."

Weir says something about how i think at that show, he and Joe got drunk/high as fark and as I said, found a great friendship.  they'd reconnect over the years every now and then.

Smile Jamaica was 1982, and here's Weird in 2020 recounting "in the mid 80s, both our bands played Philadelphia...."  straight from the horse's mouth!
