Motörhead

I went with a friend to see Motörhead in Leicester last night, and it was an awesome gig. Danko Jones and Saxon were supporting, and while I'll give Danko Jones a miss in future, Saxon were great, even if their intro was sickeningly patriotic.

Motörhead themselves were absolutely amazing, playing a variety of stuff: new, old and classic. Mikkey did a fairly hefty drum solo (easily the loudest part of a concert from which my right ear still hasn't stopped ringing), and they managed to fit an acoustic number in, with Lemmy playing the harmonica. I'm told by a friend (whose uncle works for the venue) that Motörhead reached 118dB before the encore, which is not bad at all.
