Motorhead’s Lemmy Says, “John Lennon Was The Asshole Of The Beatles”
December 8, 2010
Lemmy has spoken about how he was inspired by The Beatles, and in particular John Lennon.
Speaking to NME in a video you can watch at www.nme.com/nme-video, the Motorhead frontman fondly described Lennon as, “the asshole of the band”. He went on to say how The Beatles made him feel like he could change the world.
“The Beatles were massive. They changed the world,” he said. “The generation that was with me, which includes me, we genuinely believed we could make the world better and we failed because the world’s so full of shit.”
Lemmy: The Movie, a documentary which looks in depth at the life and times of the frontman, is in cinemas now. Motorhead also recently released a video for “Get Back In Line”, the first single from the band’s upcoming CD ‘The World Is Yours’.
