Wrong... I've found that the banging of my various nieces sounds pretty much the same.
I think that being a guy fascinated by history, Lemmy was a lot like those guys that represent The South in American Civil War re-enactments, or perhaps like the fellas that play as Germans in WW2 games like Day of Defeat or Axis & Allies.
OK, here's my evidence that Lemmy knew exactly what he was doing with his bass tone and approach to music. The clip below is apparently an extra from the documentary I mentioned, an episode of "Classic Albums" that focused on "Ace of Spades" specifically. I've seen tons of people on these forums claim that they prefer bassists that do their job of providing the groove without frills or fancy nonsense.
But if most bassists were in this situation where there is only one guitarist in a heavy rock tune, and that guitarist takes a solo, it sounds a bit empty during that time. Not here! The bottom doesn't drop out because it stays exactly the same, and there is still someone taking care of the "rhythm guitar" role.
I wouldn't be surprised one bit if it was done on purpose in this case.
Does seem like the thing that would be done on The Young Ones.
Hot off the presses:
Ozzy Osbourne Tried Rushing to Lemmy's Side Moments Before Death
Sharon probably wanted Ozzy to rifle through Lemmy's pockets for any extra lyrics.
Yep, sorry, but er, ah, hmmmmmm.
I appreciate ALL the musicians, and I'm a picky m... f....a. Pick, cool. Metal? Cool. Jazz upright? Cool. Funk? Cool. Flats, rounds, treble, cut, I'm a fan. And I'm not trying to "fanboi" just saying Lemmy is a GOD in many ways as a bassist, probably the most important that he didn't fit the mold.
When I hear bass covers of Motorhead songs on youtube I am always wowed by the bass parts the only issue I have is that perhaps because of his tone being quite guitar like and distorted but it tends to blur with the rest of what is being played so for me to pick out what is happening on the bass parts on Motorhead tunes is harder than on most songs by other bands, not too take anything away from him as a player, he was a perfectly competent and capable bass player
My avatar says it all.
Think KbD and I can hang out now?.....
Not until you do something with the pink ukulele
If Lemmy can rock jorts, I can keep my pink uke!!
That damn record drove me nuts. When I got it years ago, the song order was different. After I got the remastered AoS, i had to burn it to a cd in the order I was used to. I never got used to the original order.
