Ian Fraser Kilmister (24 December 1945 – 28 December 2015) – known to the world as Lemmy – was more than just the driving force of Motörhead. Renowned for his skills as a raconteur and philosopher, he was first and foremost a musician and innovator whose love of music led to his involvement in numerous projects beyond the scope of the band he formed in 1975. Hawkwind and Motörhead fan Alan Burridge had the idea to produce a fanzine about Motörhead in the summer of 1979. A few months later he encountered Lemmy, Fast Eddie Clarke and Philthy Animal Taylor four times on the ‘Bomber’ tour and the resulting interviews and gig reviews formed the basis of the first Motörheadbangers fanzine in January 1980. Three years later Lemmy asked Alan to integrate the fanzine with the Motörheadbangers fan club which had until then been organised by Phil’s sister Helen and their father John. Alan took this on and has run it to the present day, with over 100 Motörheadbangers fanzines to his credit. In addition, he has also written several other books about his beloved Motörhead. Wholly immersed in all things related to Motörhead, Alan began listing and hunting down all of Lemmy’s extra-curricular activities. In »Collateral Damage« he focusses the spotlight on the bands and projects in Lemmy’s life, before and parallel to Motörhead, cataloguing his appearances on film, TV, album tracks, singles and downloads. Given Lemmy’s sad passing on December 28th 2015 Collateral Damage is a true celebration of life beyond Motörhead.

This is the most informative book about Motorhead ever, and that is no idle boast. Written by their official biographer, Alan Burridge, who is often referred to by the band’s legions of fans, the Motorheadbangers, as ‘Professor Motorhead’, this book offers the full and in-depth Motorhead story, including many previously unpublished facts, revealed here for the very first time in print. This story begins at the genesis of Motorhead, the struggles, the hardships, and the poverty; when no one but founder, bassist and vocalist, Lemmy Kilmister, had any faith in his band. His focus, tunnel-vision, and conviction to play the music he wanted to play has remained undiminished over the past 35 years and counting, and Lemmy’s present status as a rock icon is proof that he was right to follow his vision. Today, with his long-time band cohorts, Phil Campbell on guitar, and Mikkey Dee on drums, the trio are regarded as one of the greatest rock bands in the world. Here we have it, everything you ever wanted to know about Motorhead, but were afraid to ask! The ultimate guide to one of the greatest rock bands of all time, Motorhead! 200+ full colour, glossy pages with shiny silver trim featuring rare and early photos, unreleased material, and more information about the band than any other book on the market – all bound in a gorgeous sliver and red embossed hard cover! Fully approved and endorsed by Lemmy (who also provides a brief note in the introduction).

If you’re a fan of Motorhead…then let’s go.Motorheadbangers, the official fan club for rock giants, Motorhead, has never stopped. Like the band on tour, in the studio and playing live to audiences across the world, Motorheadbangers, through its stalwart fan base, has matched the band’s enthusiasm to keep going against all the odds. Since the first fanzine the fan club membership has written of their experiences at seeing and meeting the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world. In this way, Motorhead’s history has been catalogued. But the majority of those fanzines have long been out of print. “MOTORHEADHEADBANGERS: DIARY OF THE FANS VOLUME 1” re-prints the first part of that long lost history. Within these pages you can smell the pyro, the dry ice and the beer stained concert hall floors. You can feel the sweat sticking your T-shirt to your back. You can see those gigs in your mind’s eye and be deafened by the loudest band in the world.
