How's it going my gumdrops? HAPPY YULECHRISTMAHANUKKAH!!! You see what I did there just now, right? Yesterday was Winter Solstice or Yule, which marks the start of winter. Because I have been working around the clock all month by publishing these blogs, I am doing Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday early.
Christmas Eve is on Saturday and Christmas Day falls on Sunday. Therefore, I will be celebrating these 2 holidays with family. Speaking of Christmas Eve, it was also the late Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead's birthday. It's still very sad that he died 4 days after his 70th birthday from Cancer, last year.
At least nobody can say that Lemmy did not enjoy life because he DID. The man was always involved in some kind of band, music project, and projects in general dating all the way back to 1960. Lemmy got AROUND (and I'm not even talking about all the 1,000+ women he had sex with,) during his lifetime as a musician.
As an entertainer, Lemmy Kilmister was very open-minded to experimenting with entertainment and has collaborated with numerous actors, musicians, and other entertainers in the various industries.
Yesterday I read a huge list of all those he collaborated with over this last 1/2 century and was blown away. I watched, listened, and read about some of his collaborations.
After learning more about Lemmy's past collaborations, it gave me a reason to update my previous tribute blog about him, which was published at the very beginning of this year. I will not sit here and pretend, that I was a HUGE Lemmy Kilmister fan because I was not.
Did I hate the late great Lemmy Kilmister?
Absolutely NOT. If anything, most local Rock stations I grew up listening to seemed to overlook his music. Lemmy was never mainstream. He had his own cult following. At the same time, a lot of celebrities in the music industry ranging from various music genres to sub-genres have praised him, throughout the years.
While updating the previous Song Saturday tribute blog, that I published earlier this year, I discovered MORE music collaborations Lemmy Kilmister did over these last 10-20+ years, last night.
I had no idea that Lemmy Kilmister collaborated with Ugly Kid Joe 20 years ago. In fact, I haven't heard any music from that band, since 1993. To learn that Kilmister collaborated with Ugly Kid Joe on "Little Red Man" was surprising. I counted every collaboration he did, that was listed.
There is a total of 38+ MUSIC COLLABORATIONS, that Lemmy Kilmister did spanning back to 1977 with The Sex Pistols. That's A LOT of collaborations. Wow!
38 music collaborations would be enough songs to be released on a triple album or a box set.
I am really surprised, that Lemmy NEVER collaborated with Michael Jackson, when they were both still alive. However, Lemmy Kilmister did express years ago, that he wanted to collaborate with Janet Jackson. Sadly, this never came to fruition.
Since it is that time of season and because Lemmy did cover Chuck Berry's "Run, Rudolph Run," I thought I would share it with you all today.
Here is Lemmy Kilmister featuring Dave Grohl and Billy F. Gibbons covering "Run, Rudolph Run" for this early Song Saturday.
