A never-before-published interview with legendary MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy has been unearthed by veteran journalist Malcolm Dome, who conducted the interview in 1981 and recently happened upon the handwritten transcript in his personal archive.
Four decades later, Rolling Stone has presented the unpublished interview for fans to enjoy. Read the interview today at https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/motorhead-lemmy-kilmister-no-sleep-til-hammersmith-lost-interview-1183208/.
The 30-minute interview with the iconic singer/bassist took place in the London offices of MOTÖRHEAD’s then-record company, Bronze Records, prior to a festival where the band was performing in support of the original release of No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith, which will be reissued via BMG on June 25.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this number one album, it is being presented in new deluxe editions. There will be hardback book-packs in two CD and triple LP formats, featuring a new venue demolishing remaster of the original album, bonus tracks and the previously unreleased – in its entirety – concert from Newcastle City Hall, March 30, 1981, the story of the album and many previously unseen photos. Also, the album will be released as a four CD box set of all three concerts recorded for the album released here in their entirety for the very first time and primed to gleefully shatter what’s left of your grateful eardrums.
