Overkill / Bomber was recently re-released on double picture disc 7” vinyl for Record Store Day, April 13th, featuring a new 2019 remaster of the original ‘Overkill’ single edit.
One Motörhead vinyl record - Everything Louder Than Everyone Else - featured some quotes on the actual sleeve from metal musicians that were massive Motörhead fans at the time such as Judas Priest, Tony Iommi and Dimebag Darrell of Pantera.
Scott Ian explains how his quote came to be, as well as how he first discovered the band back in the 80s.
“A million years ago I got a call from my manager saying that Motörhead was putting out a live record and they were looking guys that love Motörhead, that were influenced by Motörhead, to give a quote about the band”
“I was like ‘yeah of course!’ but then I got kind of really nervous about it because I’m thinking ‘What are you gonna say about Motörhead that’s never been said before, ya know you can’t just be like ‘uh Motörhead rules’”
Scott continues: “So I just started thinking about Motörhead and my whole experience...my lifetime with Motörhead...and I went back in my brain to 1980 when I first bought my first Motörhead record ‘Ace Of Spades’”
“I walk in the record store and I’m flipping through the racks and I see this record Motörhead and I kind of heard of them but I didn’t know anything about them, didn’t know what they looked like..nothing”
