Un an plus tard le 9 juillet , Würzel meurt d'une cardiomyopathie. Phil Taylor meurt le 11 novembre [ 34 ]. Les groupes composants le "Big 4" revendiquent tous Motörhead comme une influence majeure.
D'autres groupes de Thrash metal tel que Sodom ou encore Sepultura le revendiquent. Bon nombre de tribute bands , principalement britanniques, tels que Motörheadache, et We're Not Motörhead de Portsmouth au Royaume-Uni , ont vu le jour.
Lemmy was dismissed from Hawkwind in May after being arrested in Canada for drug possession;   he said the band dismissed him for "doing the wrong drugs".
Lemmy wanted the music to be "fast and vicious, just like the MC5 ". According to Lemmy, the band's first practice was at the now defunct Sound Management rehearsal studios, in Kings Road, Chelsea in Kilmister has said they used to steal equipment, as the band was short on gear.
Their record label was dissatisfied with the material and refused to release it, although it was subsequently issued as On Parole in after the band had established some success.
In March , deciding that two guitarists were required, the band auditioned an acquaintance of drummer Taylor's named "Fast" Eddie Clarke.
Initial reactions to the band had been unfavourable; they won a poll for "the best worst band in the world" in the music magazine NME.
By April , living in squats and with little recognition, Taylor and Clarke decided to quit the band, and after some debate, they agreed to do a farewell show at the Marquee Club in London.
Lemmy had become acquainted with Ted Carroll from Chiswick Records and asked him to bring a mobile studio to the show to record it for posterity.
Carroll was unable to get the mobile unit to the Marquee Club, but showed up backstage after the engagement and offered them two days at Escape Studios with producer Speedy Keen to record a single.
The band took the chance, and instead of recording a single they laid down 11 unfinished tracks. Carroll gave them a few more days at Olympic Studios to finish the vocals and the band completed 13 tracks for release as an album.
In August, Tony Secunda took over the management of the band, and their cohesiveness became so unstable that by March , Clarke and Taylor had formed and were performing as The Muggers with Speedy Keen and Billy Rath.
In July , the band returned to the management of Douglas Smith, who secured a one-off singles deal with Bronze Records. The single's success led to Bronze extending their contract, and put the band back into the studio to record an album, this time with producer Jimmy Miller at Roundhouse Studios.
It became Motörhead's first album to break into the top 40 of the UK Albums chart, reaching number 24, with the single reaching number 39 on the UK Singles Chart.
It fared worse than both the album and previous single but reached number 61 on the UK singles chart. During July and August, except for a break to appear at the Reading Festival , the band were working on their next album, Bomber.
The stage show featured a spectacular aircraft bomber -shaped lighting rig. During the "Bomber" tour, United Artists put together tapes recorded during the Rockfield Studios sessions in — and released them as the album On Parole , which peaked at number 65 on the UK Albums Chart in December.
On 8 May , while the band were on tour in Europe, Bronze released The Golden Years , which sold better than any of their previous releases, reaching number eight on the UK Singles Chart.
On 20 August, the band had a minute filmed slot, along with Girlschool 's 20 minutes performing live at the Nottingham Theatre Royal for the Rockstage programme, broadcast on UK television by the ATV on 4 April The " Ace of Spades " single was released on 27 October as a preview of the Ace of Spades album, which followed on 8 November.
To coincide with the Ace of Spades release, Big Beat , who had inherited the Chiswick catalogue, put together four unused tracks from the Escape Studios sessions in and released them as Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers , which reached No.
The band had more chart hits in with the releases St. From April through to July, the band toured North America for the first time as guests of Blizzard of Ozz, an early incarnation of Ozzy Osbourne 's band, but were still able to make an appearance on Top of the Pops on 9 July to promote the live "Motorhead" single.
Between 26 and 28 January , the band started recording their self-produced new album at Ramport Studios, before moving onto Morgan Studios to continue the sessions throughout February.
On 3 April the single " Iron Fist " was released, reaching No. Williams and the Plasmatics. Clarke felt that the song compromised the band's principles, refused to play on the recording and resigned, later forming his own band, Fastway.
Lemmy and Taylor made numerous telephone calls to find a guitarist, including one to Brian Robertson , formerly with Thin Lizzy , who was recording a solo album in Canada.
He agreed to help out and complete the tour with them. This led to an amicable agreement that Robertson would leave,   playing his last engagement with the band at the Berlin Metropol on 11 November.
After Robertson's departure in , the band were sent tapes from all over the world from potential guitarists. The group returned to the concept of dual lead guitars by hiring unknowns Würzel and Phil Campbell formerly of Persian Risk.
Scenes of the band playing are interspersed with the characters' antics as they rush to the railway station, in a parody of The Beatles ' comedy film A Hard Day's Night.
Before joining Motörhead, Phil Campbell had met former Saxon drummer Pete Gill , and the trio decided to call him to see if he would like to visit London.
The try-outs went well and Gill was hired. Bronze Records thought the new line-up would not make the grade and decided to "nail down the lid" on the group with a compilation album.
When Lemmy found out, he took over the project, selecting tracks, providing sleeve notes and insisted that Motörhead record four brand new tracks to go at the end of each side of the album.
The single " Killed by Death " was released on 1 September and reached No. The band were involved in a court case with Bronze over the next two years, believing that their releases were not being promoted properly, and the record company banned them from the recording studio.
On 26 October the band made a live appearance on the British Channel 4 music programme The Tube, performing "Killed By Death", "Steal Your Face" over which the programme's end-credits were played and the unbroadcast "Overkill", before going on to their next engagement that evening.
From 19 November to 15 December the band toured America with Canadian speed metal band Exciter and Danish heavy metal band Mercyful Fate and from 26 to 30 December performed five shows in Germany.
On 5 April , ITV broadcast four songs that were recorded after the band went off air on their earlier appearance on The Tube programme.
To celebrate the band's 10th anniversary, two shows were arranged at Hammersmith Odeon on 28 and 29 June, a video of the second show was taken and later released as The Birthday Party.
The court case with Bronze was finally settled in the band's favour. The band's management instigated their own label, GWR.
The single reached No. The performance closed with a flypast by a couple of Second World War German aircraft. In October they toured America and in December were in Germany.
In , during the filming of Eat the Rich — in which Lemmy was taking a starring role alongside well-known comedy actors such as Robbie Coltrane , Kathy Burke , the regulars from The Comic Strip ensemble, and various other musician cameo appearances  — Gill left the band and Taylor returned to appear in the band's cameo as "In House Club Band" alongside Würzel and Campbell.
The band wrote " Eat the Rich " especially for the film, its soundtrack featured tracks from Orgasmatron and Würzel's solo single "Bess".
The band's second album for GWR was Rock 'n' Roll , released on 5 September, after a tight work schedule in the studio. While having some popular tracks and using "Eat the Rich" as its second track, the band commented that the album was virtually "nailed together".
The tracks were released as No Sleep at All on 15 October. A single from the album was planned with the band wanting "Traitor" as the A-side, but " Ace of Spades " was chosen instead.
When the band noticed the change, they refused to allow the single to be distributed to the shops, and it was withdrawn and became available only on the "No Sleep at All" tour and through the Motörheadbangers fan club.
While they continued to play live shows during and , Motörhead once again felt unhappy with their career, and a court case with GWR followed, which was not resolved until mid In the studio they recorded four songs with producer Ed Stasium , before deciding he had to go.
When Lemmy listened to one of the mixes of "Going to Brazil", he asked for him to turn up four tracks, and on doing so heard claves and tambourines that Stasium had added without their knowledge.
Stasium was fired and Peter Solley was hired as producer. The story according to Stasium was that Lemmy's drug and alcohol intake had far exceeded the limitations of Stasium's patience so he quit.
The single, which was issued in 7", cassette, shaped picture disc , 12" and CD single, reached No. The band finished the year with six dates in Germany during December.
On 28 March , the band played what would turn out to be Taylor's last engagement at Irvine Meadows, Irvine, California. Three drummers participated in the making of the March ör Die album: Phil Taylor, who was fired because he did not learn the drum tracks on the song "I Ain't No Nice Guy"; Tommy Aldridge who recorded most of the material on the album; and Mikkey Dee , who recorded " Hellraiser ", a song originally written by Lemmy for Ozzy Osbourne's No More Tears album.
March ör Die features guest appearances by Ozzy Osbourne and Slash. He had asked Dee to become Motörhead's drummer before, but Dee had declined due to his commitment to King Diamond.
On this occasion, Dee was available and met the band to try out. Playing the song "Hellraiser" first, Lemmy thought "he was very good immediately.
It was obvious that it was going to work. The single " Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me " included the song " Born to Raise Hell ", which also appeared on the album and would later be re-recorded with collaborative vocals from both Ice-T and Ugly Kid Joe frontman Whitfield Crane for the soundtrack of the movie Airheads in which Lemmy also made a cameo appearance and released as a single in its own right.
Although Bastards received airtime, the record company ZYX Music would not pay for promotional copies, so the band sent out copies themselves.
In April the band resumed their tour of the States until early May, playing an engagement with the Ramones on 14 May at the Estadio Velez in Buenos Aires,  attracting a crowd of 50, people.
The band's touring schedule began in Europe in late April. In June, they went on a second tour with Black Sabbath, this time supported by Tiamat , until the band succumbed to influenza and headed back to Los Angeles and Cherokee Studios in Hollywood where they were to record an album.
During the sessions it became clear that Würzel was not extending himself and left the band after the recording. Einen Tag nach dem Tod von Lemmy Kilmister am Dezember erklärte Mikkey Dee das Ende der Band.

Retrieved 5 July The album was released on 28 August We always treated Joe fairly, and I would like to Motohead that at no time did my manager demand what Joe thinks he demanded — it is all a colossal misunderstanding. Lemmy is old friends with Gary Weight, the team's manager; Weight "sent an email off to them and they Copaamerica back and said it was a great idea" and hopes the deal will draw inspired performances from his team. Allerdings ist dies nicht als Motörheads Hauptgenre zu bezeichnen, da die Band auch andere Stile bedient oder von ihnen beeinflusst ist.
