Doro Pesch Gives Green Light To Motörhead For Lemmy Kilmister Tribute Show
Doro Pesch recently answered some fan questions for Metal Hammer and explained what she thought of joining Motörhead for a possible Lemmy Kilmister tribute show. Revealing whether she was open to the idea, the singer said:
“Yes, of course, no question! We did a Lemmy special at Wacken recently with Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee. I did ‘Love Me Forever’ – that was my first duet with Lemmy [on 2000’s ‘Calling The Wild’ LP]. Also, we did ‘Ace Of Spades’ with all the guests, and there was a big drone show, so we had Lemmy’s face in the sky smoking a cigarette. There was even a puff of smoke; it was awesome!”
While she honored Lemmy’s memory in the eighth year of his death at the Wacken Open Air festival, Pesch paid tribute to the late singer with a music video on his first death anniversary in 2016.
Doro And Lemmy’s Friendship
The singer released a clip of Kilmister’s videos and photos for their collaboration song, ‘It Still Hurts,’ on his death anniversary. She shared it on Facebook with a caption that read:
“Today is exactly one year ago since the rock ‘n’ roll world lost Lemmy Kilmister, one of its greatest ever — and one of my best and most beloved friends. One year… and we miss Lemmy so much. The wish to honor him and his remembrance day with a video showing some beautiful moments came from deep within our hearts. And here it is: In Memoriam – Lemmy, one of the greatest heroes in Rock.”
Doro and Lemmy were long-time friends before the Motörhead member died on December 28, 2015. The ‘Rare Diamond’ singer recorded a few songs like ‘Alone Again’ with the late vocalist and mentioned how he ‘saved her life many times’ in her past interviews.
