One of musics most notorious frontmen leads a headbanging, voyeuristic odyssey into sex, drugs, and rock n roll that rivals Motley Crues The Dirt and Aerosmiths Walk This Way. He made Keith Richards look like a choirboy and Mick Jagger look like a nun. And as the head of the legendary band Motorhead, he ploughed his way through so many drugs, so many women, and so much alcohol, that he gave a whole new meaning to the term Debauchery.

Lemmy would also cheat death on more than one occasion, most notoriously in 1980, when his doctor told him, "I cannot give you a blood transfusion because normal blood will kill you...and your blood would kill another human being, because youre so toxic."
