The Motorhead Mode

John Mendelsohn, Creem, December 1983

HE'S BEEN USING speed for years, and he plays in a heavy metal band with the most obnoxious album cover art ever. So one doesn't expect Ian (Lemmy) Kilmister of Motorhead to be a jerk. One expects him to be a rampaging asshole.

Total word count of piece: 1938
