Lemmy Kilmister may have passed away in 2015, but it looks like the Motörhead bassist and frontman has one last surprise in store for fans—a Lemmy solo album.
In a March 29 interview with Total Rock, Jim Voxx, guitarist of the German hard rock band Skew Siskin said he was in the final stages of finishing the project, which is expected to come out later this year.
“The songs are composed by Lemmy and when he started with me doing this, that was back in 2003,” he said. “I was able to provide him the studio time he needed because as you know, always during summer Motörhead was doing festivals here in Europe and he used Berlin as a springboard so he had the time in the summer to be here and work on further tracks.”
“He also recorded some tracks in America with Dave Grohl or Reverend Horton Heat, and in London he was working with The Damned, and all these tracks came to me to Berlin,” Voxx added, “because I am the producer of the album, and we continued working on this.”
Skew Siskin toured with Motörhead in 2010. And Voxx and the group’s singer Nina C. Alice have recorded with Lemmy in the past too (SEE VIDEO BELOW). Voxx had planned on finishing the project earlier, but it was delayed due to the bassist’s health issues.
Lemmy also contributed his bass playing to an upcoming Skew Siskin album.
