One of the best documentaries that I saw last year, and one of the best metal movies that I can think of, is Greg Olliver and Wes Orshoski's depiction of Lemmy Kilmister. I didn't want it to end.

It's no surprise to watch Lemmy being a badass. People who never have heard a Motörhead song can tell you that. But Lemmy does a terrific job of revealing what a pro he is--practically living on the road, touring and putting out albums for 40something years and leaving any room that Motörhead plays in tatters. Watching everybody from James Hetfield to Steve Vai, Ice-T, Joan Jett, Slash and Henry Rollins show up to fawn over Lemmy reminds me of the quote about how The Velvet Underground's first album sold only ten thousands copies, but everyone who bought one formed a band.

Enjoy the performances, anecdotes and insights in Lemmy right below.
