It's About Lemmy


The Bear Jew

Recommended Posts

Let's face it...

It's not about technique or songs... it's all about Lemmy.

 

In fact, when you're faced with a musical, social or moral dilemma, you should simply ask yourself, "What Would Lemmmy Do?" and the answers will become clear immediately.

 

For example, your band is on tour, and five hot strippers are clamoring for your attention, but there's a huge bump of crystal meth on the bar in front of you, and your Rickenbacker bass is kind of out of tune. What do you do?

 

Well... just ask yourself... WWLD?

 

The answer is clear: Scoop up that bump of meth and snort it off of the nearest stripper's boobs while handing off your bass to your tech for tuning.

 

Then, you hit the stage and rock

 

Isn't that easier than worrying about trying to play "Teen Town" or something by Vic Wooten?

 

This has been a public service message provided by the Lemmy Institute of Cool Knowledge and Bass Leverage Lozenge Society (L.I.C.K.B.A.L.L.S.)

Erik, you are certainly wise beyond your years. You have really given us a philosophy that is applicable not merely to bass playing and music, but in essence a philosophy of living life.

 

Does L.I.C.K.B.A.L.L.S. have any brochures or similar material that can be obtained thru the mail? Perhaps a website?

 

Your concern with our well-being really brings me to the verge of tears. Thank you...from the bottom of my heart...thank you.

I read in BP a while back that Lemmy's famous Rick is hot. That's right, it was stolen, and he knew it when he took possession of it. There went my opinion of Lemmy right there. Thieves who would take a man's instrument rank somewhere just below Enron executives and slightly above child-molesting priests in my book.

 

What would Lemmy do? Steal your fuckin' bass, that's what! :mad:

Ah.. see.. more of Mr. Kilmister's brilliance at work.

 

Lemmy didn't steal that bass -- he LIBERATED it from the someone who was oppressing it's truly rocking essence in order to allow it to reach its true destiny with Motorhead. See?

 

So.. what have we learned from this information?

 

Lemmy is nimble-fingered, and he's also wise enough to know when an instrument is not being allowed to rock to its fullest potential. He's also got balls of pure iron because he publicly admits that the bass he plays was lifted from some zero who clearly didn't have the testicular fortitude to try and take it back.

 

Now... don't you feel better?

Indeed, Lemmy is the king of all that is musical. Lemmy has survived in the music industry for 327 years and he is still rocking just as hard as he did when he first liberated that Ric. Lemmy has survived cancer and is still living with it. I was fortunate enough to see Lemmy and the rest of his band recently. They exuded more attitude and more balls than anyone I have ever seen. They didn't need the pyro, the fance stage sets, the walls of amplifiers. They had Lemmy.

A fitting quote from a great movie:

 

Chazz: Who'd win in a wrestling match, Lemmy or God?

Chris Moore: Lemmy.

Chris Moore: ...God?

Rex: Wrong, d***head, trick question. Lemmy *IS* God.

 

I rest my case. :D

Well... just ask yourself... WWLD?

That is good and all, but, Frank just doesn't have "it." Lemmy has "it."

A friend of mine once told me that she really, really wanted to start a band and call it "Lemmy's Coco Puff". If you've ever seen a picture of our friend Lemmy, you will likely be laughing hysterically at this point.

I wanna see Lemmy play at Bass Day 2004 in a trio with Victor Wooten and Felix Pastorius. That would rule!!!

Yikes... I'd be scared for Vic and Felix... they could potentially vaporize in Lemmy's presence.

One of my favorite moments in the classic film "The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years":

 

Interviewer: What do you think of all the "pretty boy" hair bands that wear makeup and are so popular right now?

 

Lemmy: Good luck to 'em if they're pretty, I wish I wuz...

A groupie is reading "Yes I Can", by Sammy Davis Jr. The driver notices and says "Yes I can if Frank says it's ok, 'cause he calls the shots for all those guys".
