This sneak peek of Motörhead on Classic Albums starts with an archived interview clip with the band, filmed around the time of their Ace of Spades album release, as they’re questioned about why they chose the album title that they did. In a cool and calm demeanor, Lemmy quickly responds to the reporter, “Because it’s bad luck. Ace of Spades is bad luck, ain’t it? We figured if we used bad luck as our saying, then it couldn’t get any worse.”
Then, jumping to over twenty years later, in the interview filmed for this episode, we hear from Lemmy’s bandmate Phil Taylor as he gives his own explanation for the album title. Taylor says, “Ace of Spades, How could anybody forget that? Even if they didn’t like the song.”
Hear from all of Motörhead’s classic lineup, including Lemmy, Phil Taylor, and Eddie Clarke, as they talk about what made Ace of Spades such an important album in rock history. Watch the network premiere of Classic Albums: Motörhead – Ace of Spades on Wednesday, March 7th at 9/8c on AXS TV.
