Synopsis

Directors Greg Olliver and Wes Orshoski explore the amazing life and career of heavy-metal pioneer and cultural icon Lemmy Kilmister, the life-force behind the enduring and influential band Motorhead. Over more than four decades, the drug-fuelled, raspy-voiced Kilmister's career has intersected with many of the touchstone moments in rock: he saw the Beatles at the Cavern, he served as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix, he mentored Sid Vicious and played in both Merseybeat and psychedelic rock bands before fusing punk and metal, thus providing the inspiration for Motorhead's thrash metal. Along the way, he forever inspired the likes of Dave Grohl, Slash and Metallica, all of whom appear in LEMMY, alongside Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Copper and others.
