1979. Paperback. Features candid photographs and individual profiles of Lemmy, Eddie Clarke, and Philthy Animal Taylor, who declares "MOTORHEAD WILL MAKE YOUR LAWN DIE!!" The title track of Motorhead’s breakthrough second album played a pivotal role in the rise of thrash metal and like so many musical innovations, it came about by accident. While breaking in a new kit, drummer Philthy Animal Taylor developed the frenetic, double-bass pattern popularized by bands like Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeth. As Metallica’s Lars Ulrich said in Sam Dunn’s Metal Evolution (2011) documentary series, “When I first heard ‘Overkill’ in early 1979, that was what blew my head off.” Original pictorial paper wrappers (8 ¼” x 10 ½”). An uncommonly nice example, with only some mild edgewear. Very good. Item #65036

Price: $200.00
