LEMMY, the movie

We HAVE to get this in to Knoxville for at least a screening...I'm thinking Downtown West, The Square Room or Relix Variety...Thoughts? Who's with me on this? I'm making calls and emails as we (I) speak, err, type, and you read, about this.

This must happen.


After four long years, the critically acclaimed, award-winning film
"LEMMY: 49% Motherfucker, 51% Son of A Bitch" is finally here.

Called "pure gold" by WIRED and "inspiring" by the NME, "LEMMY"
is currently showing in theaters across the U.S. (below is a
full list of theaters and screening dates). Go to
and click on the name of each theater to be redirected to a link
where tickets for each screening can be purchased.

"LEMMY: 49% Motherfucker, 51% Son of A Bitch" will be available

Friends in Mexico, South America and other parts of the world,
we're working hard to bring the film to you, too!

Directed by Greg Olliver & Wes Orshoski and shot over three
years, "LEMMY" follows the restless road warrior from his cluttered
Hollywood apartment to the hockey arenas of Europe. The movie
features appearances by artists spanning the musical spectrum,
from Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne and Slash to Henry Rollins,
Peter Hook (New Order/Joy Division), Mick Jones (The Clash)
and Jarvis Cocker.

VARIETY: "'Lemmy' rocks!"

NME: "'LEMMY' sidesteps fripperies and worships the Motörhead
mutha as the pure, raw, loud rock'n'roll sweetheart he is."

CLASSIC ROCK: "A heart-warming, life-affirming thing of beauty."

MOJO: "An unflinching and deeply humanizing portrait of one of
modern music's truly iconic figures."

UNCUT: "Access to Lemmy is both total and well-used. Underneath that
leathery, warty, speed-freak biker persona, there is an intelligent,
contradiction-filled, witty, bluff and extraordinary man."

NPR: "Lemmy's exterior may seem as gruff and distorted as his
trademark bass tone...but as seen here, he's all heart."

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: "You don't have to be a metalhead to love
