76: The other one with Pink Fairies' Lucas Fox

76: The other one with Pink Fairies' Lucas Fox

In this second tale of a two-part series, I chat more to founding member of Motorhead and current Pink Fairy, Lucas Fox. 

We chat about how Lucas cheated death and why he has no fear of the afterlife, how Warsaw Pakt paved the way for Jack White and ended up in the Guinness Book of Records, and how Lucas worked with Ray Charles. 

We also talk the early years of Motorhead, what it was like to leave the band and what it was really like to work with Lemmy. There’s no doubt that, after hearing Lucas’ tales, you will be queueing up to read his autobiography!

To Cat 0’nine Tails Thomas, short and long and to whom it may concern…

No time to waste time (as Ray Charles said to me, as I sat by his side on his piano seat, the second time we worked together)… the electricity was there in the interview from the off, fuelled by Cat’s curiosity, always aposite and to the point. In my lair here in Paris, suitably shirted and booted with the same black belt I wore in Motörhead slung over my bootcut jeaned snakehips, Cat’s questions came in thick and fast, more than willing to reveal all, knowing instinctively that this was going to be one of those iconic interviews that musicians crave for when being bombarded by badly researched and assinine questions in so many other cases. But none of it I was to be happily hook line and sinkered to bear all for a fun time which, I would hazard a guess would come out on radio as a classic Cat (o’nine) Tail from this feisty intelligent semient and empathic being… her listeners are lucky to have such a gem on their radio dial…

In my humble opinion Cat should have her own radio or visual show, podcast to a quality starved and thirsty for real and exciting content World…
