Motorhead Newcastle City Hall 10 November 2010

Motorhead Newcastle City Hall 10 November 2010
“We are Motorhead and we play Rock and Roll”
Lemmy: “Is it loud enough?” Crowd: “No!!!”. Lemmy: “Then we’ll turn it up. I don’t f***ing care if you go deaf. I’m f***ing deaf already”
Its been around 25 years since I last saw Lemmy and crew. I thought it was about time I put matters right; plus I managed to score a ticket for £15 on ebay (whoopee!). I’d almost forgotten how great the loud, uncompromising Motorhead experience can be. Not much has changed over the years. The guitarist and drummer are different to last time I saw the band (no Fast Eddie any more), but Lemmy looks pretty much the same and the sound (and volume) hasn’t changed at all. One thing had changed: I didn’t see Lemmy in the bar on the bandit where he could often be found in the late 70s. I enjoyed this much more than I expected. I must remember to go and see Iron Maiden next year!

    “Born To Raise Hell” featured Nina C. Alice, from the support band Skew Siskin, as co-vocalist.

    I remember being in the City Tavern, which used to be just down the road from the City Hall, having a swift pint or 2 before a Motorhead gig way back in the late 70’s or maybe 80ish, when in walked Lemmy. He headed straight for the bandit machine and started to plug it with coins. Nobody said anything to him about having his own can of Carlsberg Special Brew with him…

    Hi Thanks for the update. Lemmy always used to play the bandit. I’ve seen him do so in the City Hall bar and in the Marquee. Best wishes Peter


  3. Motorhead are my all time favourite live band. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen then, normally headlining, but once supporting Alice Cooper. Lemmy blew Alice Cooper off stage…
