Airheads: Trick Question Scene (1994)
How's it going my gumdrops? Happy New Year! I hope you all are safe and warm for the beginning of 2016.
Lately, it seems like more talented singers and musicians have been dropping like flies. As you already know, Scott Weiland recently died last month on December 4, 2015. Then, Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister died this past Monday on December 28th, when he just celebrated his birthday on December 24th (Christmas Eve).
Within a matter of 24 hours or so, we have recently learned, that Natalie Cole died. She died at 65 years old from congestive heart failure. So many talented singers and musicians keep dying left and right.
As a fan, I'm still grieving over the death of Scott Weiland. In a way, it feels a little weird for me because I have taken his death much harder than I ever expected. I'm taking his death much harder than Nirvana's Kurt Cobain and Alice In Chains' Layne Staley.
As I was saying earlier, Motorhead's vocalist, Lemmy Kilmister died on December 28th at the age of 70. I read earlier this week, that he just learned that he was dying from cancer within a matter of a few days. That's shocking as well as sad. Nobody including Lemmy expected this to happen.
Throughout the DECADES, Lemmy Kilmister has collaborated with various types of entertainers ranging from actors to musicians. The video above is a scene from the 1994 movie, Airheads. I have owned Airheads on VHS and its soundtrack for over 20 years. It's amazing how time flies.
If you have never watched Airheads, I recommend checking it out. Lemmy Kilmister was featured in the movie as well as on the Airheads Soundtrack. As an entertainer, he had versatility, which cannot be said about most entertainers in music. This most definitely applies to Metal.
There are iconic rappers like Missy Elliott for example, who are Motorhead fans. In her music video, "Get Ur Freak On," she was caught wearing a Motorhead T-shirt in 2001! I also forgot to mention earlier, that Ice-T collaborated with Lemmy on the Airheads Soundtrack for Motorhead's song, "Born To Raise Hell."
In addition, Lemmy mentioned during an interview in 2008 on Stay Thirsty Media, that he wanted to work with Janet Jackson at some point. I can only imagine why the man would want to collaborate with Janet Jackson. Janet is a talented Pop Music Icon and Lemmy Kilmister had a history of being a manwhore.
Regardless, we still love that horny goat (Lemmy was a Capricorn) dead or alive.
Because it's Song Saturday, it's only fitting to have a Motorhead block in tribute to Lemmy Kilmister. Today's blog has music from the band, Motorhead and Lemmy's music collaborations with Ice-T, Whitfield Crane, and Dave Grohl from Nirvana/Foo Fighters and his side project, Probot. Enjoy!
