Motörheads Cover von David Bowies „Heroes“

Motörhead haben im Jahr 2015 einmal eine Coverversion von David Bowies „Heroes“ als Zugabe beim Aftershock-Festival in Deutschland gespielt. Bisher blieb dies zu hören, jenen vorbehalten, die vor zwei Jahren dabei waren. Aber die Version wurde damals aufgenommen, erscheint jetzt auf dem Cover-Album „Under Cöver“ und hat ein retrospektives Video bekommen, das die letzten Jahre von Motörhead wiederzugeben versucht. Fetzt.

ONE THING Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do over their years together in Motörhead, was grab a favourite song by another artist and give it a good old fashioned ‘Motörheading’. To run them through the Motörizer if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge.

In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release Under Cöver, a collection of some of their best covers, and a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes”. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.
“It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be,” says Phil Campbell, “and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”
“He was very, very proud of it,” says Mikkey Dee, “not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”
