“Silver Machine” – Hawkwind

Video

More Lemmy for a Friday morning. This is from Lemmy’s days with space-rock giants Hawkwind, recording the vocal for Hawkwind’s most famous song, “Silver Machine.”  This is extremely trippy stuff.  I take no responsibility if you start to hallucinate (or levitate for that matter).

“Killed by Death” – Motorhead

Video

Here’s Motorhead’s version of the stereotypical ’80s metal video. It has everything you would expect: a scantily clad woman, disapproving parents, home destruction, being chased by the police, motorcycles, etc. Except it has the great Lemmy Kilmister and company bashing it out. Given all that Lemmy has seen and done over the years, I’m not so sure he can be killed by death. In a battle to the death with Keith Richards, I’m putting my money on Lemmy for the win.
