2010 Certificate: 15


In this warts'n'all biography of the space rocker turned heavy metal godfather, the cliches are stripped away from the life of Lemmy Kilmister, onetime Hawkwind bassist and - most famously - leader of uber-rockers Motörhead. His stage antics are well documented but it's the extra-curricular activities that will surprise - knowledgeable military historian, Beatles fanatic and slot machine addict. Dave Grohl, Slash and Metallica's James Hetfield all pay tribute as does art rocker de nos jours Jarvis Cocker.
