The man that was Motorhead
on 9 September 2017
A fan or not Lemmy was someone who lived for what he believed in, Rock music and the lifestyle go hand in hand as Lemmy Kilmister was that life. The autobiography is something everyone should read, written with a sense of humour understood only by the privileged.
Lemmy's lifestyle was not something suited to everyone it was something only very few people could endure, Lemmy was an entertainer through and through and his autobiography gives a small insight into what it takes to become a true rock star, because that is exactly what he was and will always be known as.
Although the book let's you know how it all started and gives you the highs and lows of being in a band, and I suppose to understand the full impact this type of lifestyle can have on a person, you really have to be there! White line fever takes you on a journey giving you some insight into the man that was Ian Lemmy Kilmister, a fascinating sometimes (very)funny read that at times had me laughing out loud, if you ever wondered how legends are made this is the book for you.
