74: The one with Motörhead and Pink Fairies' Lucas Fox

74: The one with Motörhead and Pink Fairies' Lucas Fox

Motörhead ~ Pink Fairies ~ Warsaw Pakt ~ WH Pierce Band

I call Paris and spend a very entertaining evening in the delightful company of Lucas Fox, co-founder of Motorhead, drummer with Warsaw Pakt and now member of Pink Fairies. He recounts lots of fascinating stories, divulges a few secrets and reveals all about some risky, as well as risqué, moments in his life.
 
In this first tale in a two-part series, Lucas tells me about his early days, his big break into the music industry, a chance encounter with Keith Moon, Ringo Starr and Charlie Watts, and how his band, the WH Pierce band, were recorded by Roger Waters.
 
And, of course, we chat about his first meeting with Lemmy and how Motorhead was born, but also about his obsession with ladies lingerie and why he is spilling the beans of all the sex and drugs in his forthcoming autobiography.
