Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl recently told Classic Rock Magazine about a dirty little secret of late Motörhead frontman and bassist Lemmy Kilmister.
The dirty secret?
Lemmy is, well, dirty.
In the interview Grohl recalled visiting Kilmister’s LA apartment, “I was shocked at how fucking disgusting it was.”
“These aisles of magazines and VHS tapes, stacked three to four feet high, Lemmy sitting on the couch, in his black bikini underwear with a spiderweb on them, after just dyeing his hair black, doing a phone interview, with a video game on pause on the television.”
While living through his own episode of Hoarders, Grohl was then offered some early-morning whiskey before Kilmister would throw on a preview of his new LP.
“It was fucking 11:15 in the morning, I said, ‘Sure,'” recalled Grohl.
“I will never, ever forget every little detail of that day,” asserted Grohl. “Especially not the black underwear, with a spiderweb and a black widow spider right where the dick is.”
Grohl, a known fan of Motörhead even revealed that his recent release, “No Son of Mine,” was a tribute to Lemmy.
“I wish Lemmy were alive to hear it because he would see how much an influence he’s been to me,” said Grohl.
