Strange thought, this, but Lemmy Kilmister turns 65 this year. Despite eligibility for a free bus pass, the Motörhead frontman remains a rock legend, allegedly downing a bottle of bourbon and smoking two packets of Marlboros every day. A new documentary film by Greg Olliver and Wes Orshoski offers a window into the world of this influential musician's life, and features tributes from the likes of Dave Grohl, Metallica, Mick Jones, Henry Rollins, Ozzy Osbourne, The Damned, Peter Hook, Slash, Jarvis Cocker and Alice Cooper. We hope we can say the same when we reach 65.
The movie, called simply 'Lemmy', is on show at the BFI tomorrow (9pm) as part of the London Film Festival. We have three pairs of tickets to give away, thanks to the good people at Kronenbourg. To enter, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org before 5pm tonight and we'll select three winners at random.
Kronenbourg's latest advertising campaign features Motörhead classic track Ace of Spades like you’ve never heard it before. For the new campaign, Kronenbourg asked several artists, including Lemmy, to re-write and record slowed down, chilled out versions of famously fast tracks. The slower pace is rooted in the slow taste of Kronenbourg, the slow pace of life in France and the slow, relaxed way that people like to drink it.
The ad airs for the first time on TV this Sunday evening, but you can check out a sneak preview of it over on the Kronenbourg 1664 YouTube Channel right now. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ultimate insanely fast track - Ace of Spades - played at half the normal speed.
