One of Dave Grohl’s most well known guitars is this custom black Flying-V used in the Foos 2011 “Rope” music video. The history behind this guitar is pretty awesome. It was originally custom built by Dave Dearnaley in Cardiff UK in or around 1984 for Phil Campbell of Motörhead.
From their early songs like “King of Rock”, to the guitar driven “Rock Box” and of course the Aerosmith collaboration “Walk This Way”, Hip-Hop legends Run-D.M.C. have always been influenced by rock music. Looks like Rock N’ Roll has also influenced the fashion of music fanatic D.M.C. He ditched the Adidas jumpsuit and sneakers for a pair of black jeans and a rock band shirt.
Lemmy of Motörhead was featured as a limousine driver in the Foo Fighters 2011 music video for the song “White Limo”. Even though the video show Lemmy driving the limo, he actually needed to use a stunt driver (Wiley Hodgden) because he in fact had never had a drivers license.
The latest trend in Rock N’ Roll is to get a tattoo of your recently deceased music idol. Dave Grohl went out and got an “Ace of Spades” tattoo to honor Lemmy & Flea took to his official Instagram to show off his newest tattoo dedicated to Bowie.
On December 28, 2015, just four days after his 70th birthday Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead died in his two-room apartment two blocks away from his favorite Sunset Strip hangout, the Rainbow Bar and Grill.
As the old saying goes, “A Photo Is Worth A Thousand Words” Here’s one for you….Rockers Lemmy Kilmister and Chris “Shifty” Shiflett with the recently disgraced Lance Armstrong.
The Koopalings were conceived in 1988 for Super Mario Bros. 3 by various game designers who were challenged to come up with new bosses. Most of the Koopalings have punk hairstyles and are named after musicians. Their names are Ludwig von Koopa, Lemmy Koopa, Roy Koopa, Iggy Koopa, Wendy O. Koopa, Morton Koopa Jr. and Larry Koopa.
Dave Grohl famously put one of his musical idols Lemmy of Motorhead in the Foo Fighters “White Limo” video. He also ended up putting someone else in the video he is very fond of, his wife Jordyn Blum Grohl.
