Lemmy Thank Lemmy!

posted in `Roids |

Greetings from Tromaville!  With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I feel it’s important to give thanks to the people that mean the most you.  This year, I am especially thankful for a real hero in Tromaville, someone to whom I am eternally grateful — Lemmy Kilmister.  Lemmy has put his reputation as an iconic musician on the line for independent art by appearing in Tromeo and Juliet, Terror Firmer, and Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger Part IV, among others.  He also contributed a very articulate and thoughtful forward for my book, Direct Your Own Damn Movie!  From his humble beginnings as a member of the Rockin’ Vickers, to his major successes with Motorhead, to being hailed as “God” by Steve Buscemi and Brendan Fraser in Airheads, and to being a pioneer in the fight for equal rights for hermaphrodites with his famed, hilarious public service announcement in Terror Firmer, Lemmy is a permanent fixture in pop culture.

Lemmy has worked hard to help Troma keep the independent spirit alive, asking to be compensated for his time with only a bottle of Maker’s Mark and a couple of Tromettes to talk to help pass the time on our very boring movie sets!  In Direct Your Own Damn Movie! Lemmy wrote that he “will always respect” me.  I hope he is aware of how much that means to a broken down, drunken, impotent, failed film director like myself.  On behalf of the Troma Team, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Lemmy for all his support, friendship, and above all, his candor.

    Lemmy is the real deal, no facade, no rockstar attitude and no sugar coated bullshit. He works hard to do things his way in an industry dominated by networking and image without compromising his integrity. There are very few men you will meet like this,
    Lloyd is cut from the same jib, which makes it no surprise of their mutual admiration for each other. I have so much respect for both.

    Good stuff Lloyd!

    Lemmy and yourself are really the only two (ahem) ‘older’ gentlemen in the world who really make getting up in the morning worthwhile. I figure, hey, if a creepy-looking New York guy can make the best films in America, and an inexplicably still-handsome speed freak can still front the best band in the WORLD, then maybe there’s hope for us all.

    Yeah Lemmy and Lloyd are equally hilarious. I keep waiting for the day that Lemmy and I are at the same party. I’d love to tell him how awesome his bass work is on Space Ritual.
