The heavy metal world is trying in vain to fill the massive void left by the late legend and Motörhead frontman, Lemmy Kilmister. After a short battle with cancer, he passed away in 2015, leaving behind an incomparable legacy. Fans still want more of him, and thankfully, they’re getting it!
There were a number of rumors swirling around that he was making several recordings around the world with some of the best bands out there. No official news was released about it. Until now. Skew Siskin guitarist, Jim Voxx has revealed that, indeed, there is a solo Lemmy album that should come out this year, if things go on as planned. When we say “solo”, it means devoid of Motörhead, but in collaboration with a number of rockers.
Jim Voxx told Metal Talk about the highly anticipated last work of Lemmy: “We are in the very last stages of the Lemmy solo album. I still don’t know when it will be released, because this is in the hands of the Motörhead management and it took a while. Lemmy had so many things left – there are so many other recordings and they all had to sort out how to proceed.”
“There is no real time rush to release this album so I can imagine it will be towards the end of the year.”
“Lemmy also recorded some tracks in America with Dave Grohl or Reverend Horton Heat and in London he was working with The Damned. All these tracks came to me in Berlin.”
“I gave him the possibility to come here and work in the studio whenever he needed and step-by-step we got the songs together. We have 10 songs, and we thought it would have been released a long time ago but when Lemmy got ill, we stopped working on it but the recordings were all done.”
