In 1980, Motörhead released their fourth album Ace Of Spades. Loud, fast and overwhelmingly heavy, Ace of Spades would propel Motörhead into the ranks of Heavy Metal’s elite and 25 years later is still considered a benchmark album in its genre.
Motörhead – Ace Of Spades Classic Album sees Lemmy, “Fast” Eddie Clarke and Philip “Philthy Animal” Taylor talk candidly about the writing and recording of the album and the goings on inside the Motörhead camp at the time. Watch “Fast” Eddie as he demonstrates how the riff for Ace Of Spades came about, and see the trio (with the help of modern technology) together on the same stage once again. Also featured are exclusive interviews with the likes of Slash (Guns & Roses, Velvet Revolver), Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Dave Brock (Hawkwind), and many more.
At the front of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal is Motörhead. Formed in 1975 by former Hawkwind bassist Lemmy Kilmister, the band endured several lineup changes in its early years, and the revolving door lineup began again, with Lemmy continuing to be the driving force of Motörhead.
