Other Motörhead news:

Ace of Spades is the latest album inductee in the May issue of Decibel Magazine’s prestigious “Hall of Fame” series, which explores landmark albums in the badass pantheon of extreme music.  Says the magazine, “Ace of Spades finally, definitively, captured this unkempt band’s sound, a sonic force so unruly and crass that it appealed to punk and metal crowds equally. Yeah, the title track is perhaps the greatest metal anthem ever written, but there are a half dozen on here-“(We are) the Road Crew,” “The Hammer,” “Jailbait,” “Fast and Loose,” etc.-that are just as ass-kicking and memorable. Not surprisingly, Ace debuted on the U.K. charts at number four and went on to be the band’s biggest selling album, the one that would finally help them grab a foothold in the U.S.”

– On May 7, Lemmy will perform with Slash and Matt Sorum, among others, at the MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert.

– A number of Flip Skateboards signed by Lemmy will be given away on a variety of sites soon.

– Lemmy provided a very unusual recipe for the upcoming rock ‘n roll cookbook, “Mosh Potatoes.”  The recipe is called “Krakatoa Surprise,” and has chocolate syrup, curry powder, brandy and a variety of other ingredients.  The publisher will be including a warning label…

– Lemmy appears on Slash’s new record on a track called “Doctor Alibi.”

– Motörhead are scheduled to play Rock In Rio Madrid on June 14, as well as many other festivals throughout Europe from May to August.
