Lemmy: 49% Motherfucker, 51% Son of a Bitch makes cutoffs metal

Motorhead performs tonight at the Midland with Clutch and Valient Thorr.

Lemmy: 49% Motherfucker, 51 % Son of a Bitch, the new documentary on the legendary Motorhead frontman, has a lot of names telling a lot of stories that back up the “Ace of Spades” singer’s hardcore reputation. Drugs, women, rock and roll, and life divided among the tour bus, the stage, and a bar on the Sunset Strip. Yet the most important is the story about Lemmy’s cutoffs.

“I mean, these were like Daisy Duke’s,” Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian says

at one point, recounting a roasting hot day in L.A. when Lemmy was bent

over an arcade machine, rear covered only by a scrap of denim.
