MOTERHEAD's main man Mikkey Dee stopped by 107.3 WKLQ today and did an interview on the "METAL" show!
As previously reported, MOTÖRHEAD frontman Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister will appear as a playable character in the "Guitar Hero: Metallica" game,' due in stores spring 2009! Gamers will have the option to either watch Lemmy's in-game likeness as he hammers away at his bass and sings in his signature, whiskey-drenched vocals, or they can step into his cowboy boots and learn to play MOTÖRHEAD's 2008 re-recorded version of the band's biggest hit, the anthemic "Ace of Spades".
"It's great to be in 'Guitar Hero' with all these famous people and I'm really pleased to be in it with METALLICA," Lemmy said, "but [frontman] James [Hetfield] is still taller than me."
METALLICA and MOTÖRHEAD have long enjoyed a mutual admiration of one another's work, as METALLICA once played seven MOTÖRHEAD covers under the moniker THE LEMMYS.
MOTÖRHEAD picked up its first Grammy in 2005 in the "Best Metal Performance" category for the band's cover of METALLICA's "Whiplash", which was featured on "Metallic Attack: Metallica - The Ultimate Tribute" album.
Greg Giles and Steve The Rat of the "Metal" show, Michigan's 107.3 WKLQ radio station conducted an interview with MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee. Listen to the chat in two parts below.
