Super7 continues to pull out all of the Heavy Metal stops when it comes to making you reach for the wallet, credit card or maybe even your digital forms of payment with the brand-new version of the late great Lemmy Kilmister. They are calling this one the “Lemmy, Modern Cowboy” and a few provided images and text are below for your consumption.
The Press Release:
On November 13th, 2020, Metal Queen DORO proves once again that she literally gives her all when she cares about something. On this November 13th, DORO’s own label, Rare Diamonds Productions, will release her long-awaited best-of album Magic Diamonds – Best Of Rock, Ballads & Rare Treasures. And that’s what it’s all about: 56(!) songs on three CDs with a total of almost four(!) hours playing time! An all-around impressive showcase that spans four decades of DORO music, and with 20 rock songs, 18 ballads, and 18 rare treasures, offers everything a fan’s heart desires – and a lot more!
As an exclusive to Europe, the three CDs will be released in a high-quality box containing a valuable, exclusive DORO perfume called “True At Heart” as well as a Magic Diamonds tube scarf! “I have been dreaming of my own perfume for many years,” says DORO. “Now the time has finally come.” The fragrance – and therefore, also the 3CD box – is available in two versions: “For Him” and “For Her.” (PLEASE NOTE: due to shipping restrictions, this limited-edition version will NOT be available for sale in North America.)

Though I wanted to get this online yesterday for the actual anniversary, I’ve been a bit numb at the news of the passing of the great Adam West whose death we had to address for our “In Memoriam” section. Now that some reflection has been done in his memory it’s time to speak about the 40th Anniversary of the single “Motorhead” by the band of the very same name. Now this is the bands second single as their first was “Leaving Here” but I felt that this one was more worthy of a toast. The song is actually a number that was written by Lemmy for the band Hawkwind who he was a member of for a few years. This was the last song that he would write for them before being dismissed for substance abuse. Fans of the tune should find a version by Hawkwind since it’s so incredibly different from the one so many of us have some to love.

While Lemmy might be gone for almost a year now, his memory is as vital in the minds of Rock and Metal fans worldwide for both his many, many albums and incredible concert performances. Now, he will live on in perhaps his cutest form ever as a Funko “Pop! Rocks” vinyl figurine. It’s available now and depending on where you purchase it can be obtained for anywhere between $10-$20 bucks.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Those who’ve been reading the website for a little while know that we’ve been attending the American International Toy Fair for a few years now. It’s a super important event to cover based on the Pop Culture geek stuff that I regularly discuss and one of my favorite stops at the show is the Funko pavilion. While initially an ingenue about the brand, I didn’t realize that their KISS releases would disappear as quickly as they did and now they fetch at least three times their original price. I love the fun look of the Pops! and if you click their tag down below you’ll see all the different things from the Toy Fair events of the past. They pretty much have something for every collector but I would choose wisely or you will put yourself in the poor house based on just how many figurines there are. Okay so to close up what do you think about this Lemmy Pop!, will you be adding him to your collection or sitting him on top of a bass head? Chime in down below and feel free to let me know who you would like to see the company do next. Thanks for listening.
Last night, the memory of the late great Motorhead bassist Mr. Lemmy Kilmister was forever immortalized with the installation of a life-size bronze statue that was unveiled at the famous Rainbow Bar & Grill. The musician was very well known at the Rainbow because during the many years that he lived in the immediate vicinity, he could often be found at a space at the bar playing a video poker machine. While I was unable to be a part of the unveiling, I learned that a musician from my neighborhood had taken the trip out there to be a part of the night. Thanks to him, I have a few photos from the scene and some inside scoop about the event. Behind that sign is the statue and the unveiling was going to be soon.
