23 years ago Metallica dressed up as Lemmy to celebrate the iconinc frontman’s 50th birthday. Only that Lemmy was actually born on the 24th of Decemberm but that didn’t stop the foursome to take the stage at the Whisky A Go Go and blast six Motorhead classics: “Overkill”, “Damage Case,” “Stone Dead Forever,” “Too Late, Too Late,” “The Chase Is Better Than the Catch”, “We Are the Road Crew” and again “Overkill! “They all dressed up as me, and I thought that was great. It was a lovely bit of respect, that was” Lemmy told MTV that night. “I knew they were coming to the party, but I didn’t know they were going to come dressed up like that. They all had long black wigs on and penciled-in mustaches, and a tattoo drawn on one arm, with a black marker. Besides, they got their tattoos on the wrong arm too, every one of them”, noticed Lemmy.
