Synopsis

Shot over three years, Lemmy is about rock icon Lenny Kilmister, singer/bassist/songwriter for Motorhead, the British trio credited with putting heavy metal on the map.

As the only original member, Lemmy has been the band's driving force since its inception 35 years ago, making music that's influenced everyone from Metallica to The Damned to Anthrax.

At 65—in spite of diabetes and high blood pressure—Lemmy continues to live a rock 'n rock lifestyle, fueled by sex, Marlboros and Jack Daniels. But he's still going strong, writing songs with those straight up lyrics that he delivers with his-gravelly voice and pounding bass. Lemmy's softer side comes out in scenes with the adult son he first met when the boy was six.
