A "Motorhead" is someone who is addicted to amphetamines (speed).
Lemmy used to be the road manager for Emerson, Lake and Palmer. He was also briefly a roadie for Jimi Hendrix. Lemmy told Rolling Stone in 2010 regarding working for the guitar icon: "Whenever they needed an extra pair of hands I was right there. I didn't get the job for any talent or anything. But I did see Jimi play a lot. Twice a night for about three months."
Lemmy collects Nazi memorabilia.
Iron Maiden have a mascot named "Eddy," Motorhead have "Snaggletooth." Artist Joe Petagno came up with the idea of a gorilla-dog hybrid with wild boar tusks. Lemmy then added the helmet, chains and spit. Snaggletooth appears on most Motorhead album covers.
Lemmy's real name is Ian Fraser Kilminster. He acquired his nickname as a child as he was always asking to borrow money.

Lemmy likes to watch pornography on the tour bus.
Lemmy is often seen as the most hedonistic artist on earth. He claims to have done speed for over 20 years. Even past age 60 he claims he still does drugs every day, eats lot of junk food, and drinks a bottle of whiskey a day. He claims to have had sex with over 3000 women during his life.
Rumor has it that when Lemmy asked a doctor for blood purification, the doctor said that his body is so adapted to speed that pure blood would kill him.
Lemmy has his own game machines at home because this somewhat helps to control his gambling addiction.
