Motorhead – March or Die Concert Ticket

with one comment

This was my first Motorhead show and the only reason I even cared to go was because Mikkey Dee was in the band.  At this time I really didn’t give 2 hoots about Motorhead although I did like the 1916 album.  Daniel and I got to the show a little early and got to spend time with Mikkey and Phil Campbell (aka Zoom at the time for what he stated as legal issues with an ex).  It was cool because Mikkey remembered me from the year prior when we hung out on the Don Dokken solo tour.  I remember Wurzel being there and he signed my ticket stub, but he was really quiet and didn’t hang out with us.  This was also my first time meeting Lemmy.  It lasted all of about 9 seconds.  I handed him my 1916 cassette (!!!) cover and asked him to sign it.  He mumbled something unintelligible to me, shook my hand and I thanked him and walked away.

I didn’t notice until the other day that we had free tickets.  I’m not sure how that came about but I think Steve from Skinnies Records.  If so, thanks Steve!

Local band Sea of Souls opened up.  I will admit that I liked them the first time I saw them (not sure which show it was), but they seemingly opened up for every band that came through town and I quickly got sick of them.  When Motorhead hit the stage, it was pretty intense.  Mikkey brings a high level of energy to any band he is in.  Since this show, I haven’t missed a chance to see them live.  Mainly because of the drums but over time I became a fan of the band as well.   I’ve met Mikkey a few times since then and he’s always a class act.
