(We Are) The Road Crew

Album: Ace Of Spades (1980)
  • Lemmy wrote this for the band's road crew, who he considered "The best crew in the world."
  • This took Lemmy just 10 minutes to write.
  • During Eddie Clark's guitar solo he falls on his back, resulting in a huge feedback which lasts a couple of seconds before making a comeback and returning to the solo. >>

  • Lemmy wrote this number in a studio toilet in Rickmansworth, North London. He explained to Q magazine January 2010: "It was the only quiet place in the building. I had an idea and I needed somewhere to work it through. That is the only song I can remember writing in the toilet."
