Hey phin did Kurt like Motörhead?
IMWT: You’re a rock legend. Do you feel you may be the last of a dying breed?
Lemmy: Apparently, yeah. It’s a shame, too, you know. What a drag, right? It’s ridiculous. All these bands have not got any songs you can remember, nevermind names. There’s nothin’ you’re going to be singing down the road in 20 years, is there? Except for people complaining over it [laughs].
IMWT: Who would you say is the last person deserving the title?
Lemmy: I don’t know. I guess Kurt Cobain, ‘cause the best legends are dead, you know what I mean?
IMWT: Come on, you’re still alive, right?
Lemmy: Yeah, I know. The best ones are dead. It makes a better legend if they’re dead, right? I don’t want to be a fuckin’ legend. I want to be a competitor, you know?
Blasko: As a songwriter outside of Motorhead, is there someone living or dead that you would or would have liked to collaborate with?
Lemmy: There are a few of them. Kurt Cobain for one. Lennon and McCartney of course, although you really couldn’t write with them could you? I mean you would end up being beaten to death by the awe of it all. That girl from Evanescence, I would like to collaborate with her. I bet she is a really good writer.
