Exclusive Video: A Guided Tour of Lemmy's Apartment

November 30, 2010 9:26 AM ET

There are few characters in rock history more deserving of a full-blown documentary than Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister. Not only has he led Motörhead for an incredible 35 years, he's also been a member of Hawkwind, a roadie for Jimi Hendrix, a fixture of the L.A. metal scene for the past two decades and a rock fan since the 1950s.

Lemmy will hit theaters in select U.S. cities in mid-January, and on February 15 it will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray and as a digital download. It features Dave Grohl, Alice Cooper, Slash and many others talking about Lem's legendary status, and features extensive interview footage with Lemmy himself.

In this exclusive preview from the film, we get a guided tour of Lemmy's memorabilia-crammed apartment in Los Angeles: tons of Motörhead memorabilia, as well as a Grammy Award and various plaques, steins, skulls, military helmets, toy tanks, busts and even Lemmy's son, whom he singles out as the most-cherished object in the apartment.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
