Lemmy Kilmister, "Lemmy: 49% Motherf**ker. 51% Son Of A Bitch"

Greg Olliver and former Billboard editor Wes Orshoski followed Motörhead singer/ bassist Lemmy Kilmister around the world to film a documentary about him, crafting a portrait that transcends Kilmister from metal legend to relatable human being. Their labor of love pays off in spades for the DVD release of "Lemmy: 49% Motherf**ker. 51% Son of a Bitch." The already comprehensive depiction of one of the genre's few remaining giants (by turns hysterical, touching and fascinating) contains three hours of extended interviews with the A-list of rockers who tell his story, including Dave Grohl, Ozzy Osbourne, Nikki Sixx and Metallica. All weave amusing tales about the legendary substance consumption, musical prowess and rock'n'roll lifestyle that earned Lemmy his iconic badass status. They also expose his intelligence, consistent generosity and down-to-earth demeanor, proving him to be much more gentleman than bastard.
