New Motorhead biography due next week

The nearly forty-year career of heavy metal legends Motorhead is chronicled in a new collectable book, "Motorhead: Live To Win," by Alan Burridge, to be released on August 28 via Cleopatra.

"Live To Win" is the full, in-depth Motorhead story, with previously unpublished, revealing facts, rare and early photos, and is fully approved and endorsed by frontman Lemmy Kilmister (who also contributes to the introduction).

Official book description:

“The book starts in those early days in the 1970s, when the rocky start and personal struggles of the band threatened to keep it on the ground. But with Lemmy’s focus and gutsy determination, the late part of the decade showed success in the UK.

The Motörhead world domination of the 1980s and 1990s, including the release of Aces Of Spades, Bastards and more, is chronicled with stories from nearly twenty years of heavy touring with everyone from DIO to OZZY.

The book concludes present day, with Lemmy cemented as a rock icon beside long-time bandmates Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, and still driving that Motörhead train in music history.”

"Motorhead: Live To Win" is 220 full-color glossy pages with shiny silver trim, and includes a collectible full-color bookmark. The cover features a red and silver foil logo on black leatherette.
