In the summer of 2000, I got a call from Todd Singerman, Motorhead's manager.He
told me that the band was planning to celebrate its 25th Anniversary by staging a killer bash in London.He
was calling to invite me to attend.
I checked in with Todd Singerman
long time manager and one of the best people that I have met in Los Angeles.He
explained that the band was about to go to a rehearsal and I was welcome to attend.He
also said that it would last only an hour or so and suggested that I get some sleep so that the activities that will transpire later in the evening could include me. Having gone more then 30 hours without sleep, exhaustion got the better of me and I decided to take a quick nap to prepare for the evening.
A few hours later I got a call from Todd
telling me that Lemmy was planning to hit one of London's renowned strip clubs, Stringfellows.He
also said that Mikkey was going to get some rest and that Phil was interested in hitting the bar in the hotel.I was still pretty tired and decided that a night in the hotel bar with Phil was probably the best choice for me. So, I called Phil in his
room and we made plans to hook up a little later.I took that opportunity to get a little more sleep.A few hours later I called Phil only to find out that he
had echoed my activities and had fallen asleep.He
was quite wiped out and we decided that the fun could wait until the next day.
