Motorhead’s Lemmy has a lot of famous fans.
He says he is constantly surprised at discovering new celebrity fans.
The Motorhead frontman said he recently discovered Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich was once the head of California’s Motorhead fan club while Cliff Burton, Metallica’s original bassist, was the only other member.
And he said he was very surprised to find out that actor Jude Law is also a big fan.
He said: “He came to show we did in England at the Royal Festival Hall. He showed up backstage while I was still covered in sweat and told me he loved it.
“He was really nice. I was surprised – you don’t think of actors liking music.”
