You gotta like Lemmy. He's his own man, isn't he? He never seems to say no, and he leaves it all out there. Even with a Christmas song. On "Run Rudolph Run" he teams up with Billy Gibbons and Dave Grohl, but really, it's all Lemmy. Every song he does sounds like the last song of a live set, on the last date of a long tour. And he's been like that for how long? God love him.
The second song down there is a cover of "Stand By Your Man" with the late Wendy O. Williams (Plasmatics), and it sounds like you'd think it would sound, at the punk end of the metal-o-meter. There's a couple covers of Motorhead's "Ace of Spades" down there too. One is an awesome soul version by Eli "Paperboy" Reed, and the other by Union Avenue, a Johnny Cash tribute band from Scotland. Their entire repertoire seems to be covers done in the style of Johnny Cash. That shit might get old. But do check the version by Reed. And check the trailer for the Lemmy documentary if you haven't already seen it. See what all the fuss is about.
