Lost Lemmy Country duet is rediscovered
A lost Country duet from legendary Motorhead bassist and frontman Lemmy Kilminster has resurfaced. The lead single from singer Lynda Kay’s forthcoming album Black & Gold, The Mask was recorded in 2009 and shows off the full range of Lemmy’s voice outside of the usual, aggressive growl he’s synonymous with. The recording was thought to have been lost, but has since been rediscovered and has been released today, August 23rd.
Lemmy began working on The Mask back in 1979, coincidentially the same year the seminal Motorhead albums Overkill and Bomber were released, but chose not finish the track until a few dacades later.

The boxset will also include Motorhead b-sides and rarities.
Lemmy Kilminster passed away in 2015 from heart failure and cancer, the latter of which was only diagnosed two days before his death. Regarded as a pioneer in Rock, his impact and presence still resonates today.
