A true rock and roll legend, Lemmy Kilmister always usted say how much fan he was from the early rock music, like Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis. So, it ain’t a surprise that he joined his Headcat bandmate Danny B. Harvey and Annie Marie Lewis, Jerry Lee Lewis niece.
Hear “Trying To Get To You”:
“Lemmy and I first discussed doing this duet about a year before he died when we were talking about how ‘Trying to Get to You’ would make a great country / rock ‘n’ roll duet because it’s a rockin’ love song. Headcat had recorded and released the song twice but there was also a third version that Lemmy loved his vocal take on but didn’t like our backing track as much. I told him I could fix it up and add Annie’s vocal. As a lark, I did a rough mockup of it and played it for him during our second to last Headcat show in January 2015. He loved it and told me to ‘proceed with caution’ and laughed,” Harvey tells Blabbermouth.
