Metal Hammer

Exactly why Kirsty McColl invited Motörhead legend Lemmy to mime the role of her guitarist for a performance of her hit single Terry on German TV show Musikladen in the summer of 1984 has been lost to the passing of time. But by all accounts, the pair had a great giggle on the day.

Saluting McColl as a “really great bird” in his autobiography White Line Fever, Lemmy fondly recalled their unlikely one-off TV collaboration: “I was on guitar, dressed in shades and a teddy-boy outfit,” he wrote, “and I sank to my knees doing a solo – actually I had no idea what I was playing.”

For Lemmy though, the fun did not stop there.
