Lemmy the MOVIE!
According to BlabbermouthÂ and RollingstoneÂ , "Lemmy", a documentary that follows MOTÃRHEAD's frontman Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister on the road and into his home, will premiere at the 2010 South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas this March.
The film promises fans more access than ever before to Kilmister's life, and includes interviews with past and present bandmates and such peers/admirers as Slash, Dave Grohl, METALLICA, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne and wrestling superstar Triple H.
Directors/producers Greg Olliver and Wes Orshoski, spent three years with Lemmy to capture the life and history of the legendary rocker, traveling from Kilmister's Hollywood home to concerts in Scandinavia and Russia.
The film was reportedly shot on a combination of HD video and super 16 mm film.
"Lemmy never ceases to surprise me," Orshoski told Billboard.com in a 2008 interview. "You think you know who Lemmy is, but you have no idea. If you think you have Lemmy all figured out, trust me. You don't!"
"Shooting Lemmy is like filming dangerous wildlife. He never does what you expect him to do, and he never does anything you want him to do," Olliver added. "A lot of the coolest shots are shots we had to wait for four or five shows to go by before we could get them."
