“I have always admired Lemmy” Freeman said, “I first met Mr. Kilmister back in 1967 when we were both roadies for Jimi Hendrix. I remember one night in Berlin, Lemmy spent the night with this old German prostitute and the next morning he came back with the moles on his face. It was the weirdest thing. We tried scrubbing them, burning them, bleaching them off, everything we could think of but those buggers simply wouldn’t budge!”
Preparing for his new role, Freeman has been tirelessly studying bass guitar along with a vocal coach attached to his hip 24-7, Morgan will also be providing all the vocals for the movie soundtrack.
“I have been chugging Jack Daniel’s, smoking four packs of cigarettes and taking lots of speed, cocaine and LSD to prepare for the role” – Morgan Freeman.
Jesse Eisenberg of “The Social Network” fame, will be playing young Lemmy Kilmister, and comédienne Kathy Griffin will stunt-double as Lemmy’s warts.
The tagline for the movie is ”Motorhead! The loudest, dirtiest, raunchiest Rock n Roll band in history and Lemmy was their leader.
