Exodus Guitarist Gary Holt: “I’m Convinced, And Have Been For Decades, That There’s More Than One Lemmy”

Gary Holt (Exodus) and more have shared some of their Motörhead stories with Banger TV as part of a promo video for the recently released Motörhead tribute album “Löve Me Förever: A Tribute To Motörhead.” Humorously, the guitarist says he believes there was actually “more than one Lemmy.”

Holt said the following:

“I’m convinced, and have been for decades, that there’s more than one Lemmy, or at least there was.

We [in EXODUS] used, back in the day, to squander more money on tours. When we did a European tour, we insisted that we had to spend a week in London first — to acclimate to the time change. Basically, it was us partying like fucking animals for five to seven days.

This was when Lemmy still lived in England and London. And we’d go out to a bar and there’s Lemmy. We’d go up and hang out [with] him, do some drugs or whatever and have some drinks. [We’d tell him] ‘We’re gonna go to this other place.’ ‘All right. See you guys later.’ And we’d get there and he’s already sitting at the bar; I mean, he’s been there for an hour. And then we went to another place and he’s there ahead of us, and we left him sitting at the bar. And ever since then we’re convinced that there’s at least three different Lemmys, ’cause he couldn’t possibly have done it. But, you know, Lemmy is God, so…”

Motörhead And Headcat Members Defend The Late Lemmy Kilmister Against Nazi Sympathizer Accusations

As you probably know, the late Lemmy Kilmister had a history of collecting and wearing pieces of Nazi paraphernalia from World War II. As such, he has been accused of being a Nazi sympathizer. However, his bandmates, Motörhead’s Phil Campbell and Headcat’s Slim Jim Phantom, have since come to his defense.

The conversation stemmed from a fan who said the following on Twitter [translated from Spanish]:

“RIP Lemmy…although he had his Nazi tendencies, he always seemed to me the best rocker in history…of course after Hendrix, whose assistant he was at concerts.”

This led Campbell to respond:

“FYI, Lemmy DID NOT, have any Nazi tendencies. He was a historian.”

Slim Jim Phantom also chimed in:

“Phil Campbell is 100% correct & I will vouch for this true statement all day long. Best, SJP 😺☘️🥁”

Campbell then added:

“Thanks Jim, we should know.”

Rob Halford (Judas Priest) Reveals He Received One Of The Bullets Containing The Ashes Of The Late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead)

As previously reported, the ashes of the late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) were placed inside bullets and given out to his closest friends. Now, it has been confirmed that Rob Halford (Judas Priest) was one of those recipients.

Halford told “SpeedFreaks” the following:

“When Lemmy passed away, I had this beautiful opportunity to speak at his memorial. We had a great get-together; all of us musicians from all over the world, we met in Hollywood and we talked about Lemmy and his great life and the things that he’s left us. And then, not too far back, I get something in the mail from the Lemmy people; Lemmy’s office, his manager and everybody still work tirelessly to keep his name with us, as he always will be. They sent me — it’s a bullet [laughs], it’s a bullet with some of Lemmy’s ashes inside of it.”

“This is nuts. This is the kind of thing that Lemmy would have loved to have done. However you choose to interpret what I’ve just said, that’s entirely up to you. But to be thought of, to be brought into this small circle of friends where you actually own a little bit of Lemmy’s ashes and you wear it around your neck on a pendant and he’s close to your heart in the truest sense in terms of his mortal remains, that’s just mind-blowingly powerful. To use an object like that to carry his remains is just so Lemmy — it’s provocative, it makes you think, it makes you talk. But as far as having a beautiful part of Lemmy physically with me right now in my house, that’s just magical.”
