Rock Legend Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead Interviewed For Ringers: Lord of the Fans!

Beverly Hills , CA — MAY 24, 2004: Singer/Bassist Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister of Motörhead granted an exclusive interview to the producers of the upcoming feature documentary, Ringers: Lord of the Fans. With razor sharp wit and outrageous humor, Mr. Kilmister shared many thoughts and stories of being a Tolkien fan living the rock n’ roll life. Flying in the face of expectations, his playful barbs struck a variety of targets from the worlds of both rock and literature.

Grammy-nominated Lemmy Kilmister first formed Motörhead in 1976. Achieving a loyal underground following few bands have ever attained, Motörhead became the archetypical British metal band. They have persevered for thirty years, influencing some of the biggest bands in the world such as Metallica and Guns n’ Roses, while millions of fans continue to flock to their legendary live shows. The band has played alongside such rock luminaries as Judas Priest, Alice Cooper, and the great Ozzy Osbourne himself. Motörhead’s newest album, “Inferno,” will be released June 22, 2004.

The Ringers documentary filmmakers have secured interviews with many actors and entertainers, exploring how the works of J.R.R. Tolkien influenced them at the dawn of their careers. After 16 months of location shooting on three continents, and speaking with dozens of actors, filmmakers, rock musicians, authors, and academics, Ringers stands as the most comprehensive film document of the ongoing Tolkien phenomenon.

About the documentary:

Very funny and often moving, Ringers: Lord of the Fans shows the hidden power behind Tolkien’s books — and how after 50 years a single literary work continues to spark the minds and hearts of millions, across cultures and across time. Ringers explores the real foundations of Middle-earth; a community of true fans who share a common bond. Moving beyond “cult classic” and over several different generations, the film unearths academics, musicians, authors, filmmakers, and a plethora of pop junkies — the people gathered under the banner of ‘Ringer.’
