Lemmy lends a hand to Jetboy

The band Jetboy have been around for decades. Their career has seen its highs and lows, and over the years, they’ve been quite open about their influences. One of those influences was Lemmy Kilmister, leader of Motorhead. The band have offered a tribute to Lemmy by including him in a spoken-word piece in their new song, “Beating the Odds.” The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album Born to Fly.

Kilmister, who passed away in 2015, co-wrote a song,  titled “The Reading,” with Jetboy vocalist Mickey Finn in the early ‘90s. One of the key lines in the song is, “From our childhood homes they take us; in our innocence they make us to march, to fight, to hate; to believe in them, their games, their priceless murderous toys.”
