“I don’t really know, I mean, I know a lot of people that are that age and they’re all different like in my generation, some of them are clerks and some of them are rock ’n roll. I don’t think of anybody as a whole I think of individuals really,” Lemmy Kilmister said.
“I heard Little Richard and Elvis and that was it, you know? Then I went to London because that’s where you had to be in Britain. You can’t do it from anywhere else really. Even the Beatles had to go to London.”
