Late 2015 I worked couple of days with Lemmy to open a project helping people insured in war. Lemmy's last gig was in Helsinki the next day, and Lemmy and telecommuted this project beginnings. The original idea came from aid.co.operation with Status Quo's Aid record In the Army Now that was released as EP some years ago.
Signed by Lemmy Project's idea was creating a musical record that would include 10-14 rock songs. Great Rock Album, that every music fan really wants to own. We decided that we split the work so that Lemmy is the Art Director who choose the final songs to this project, and how the album is constructed. My job was only to help contact major artists in World so that this set would be include the best rock songs that "gets you out of the bed".
With help of Lemmy friends fe. Ozzie Osbourne and excellent contacts there is great names coming..
Lemmy liked very much about the idea that he would be the Art Director of project. He liked the idea that all rock and roll family members would get together and fire great rock album. Then sit together and having dinner with friends. We decided, that this album will have no slow songs, no sad songs. It is only rock'n'roll. And it will get you out the bed. Keep on Rockin'. We also dreamed a movie of some kind from the set taken of the record.
I presented to Lemmy that Deep Purple's song Gupsy's kiss is kind of World we are looking. Lemmy called me many times and said only Gypsy's Kiss. He was really on the good mood for this project..Suddenly, he did telecommute me anymore. Silence for a week..then.. What a sad moment that he needed to leave before work was finished.
When someone losts in war her husband, or the husband comes back without all limbs, you need good rock and roll spirit to get out of bed. Profits of the record the go to help these families that contribute so much. and maybe the should be Lemmy Foundation of some kind to help kids with musical studies / and w. instruments too ?
The Original Song List Signed by Lemmy has been found from Lemmys desk said his son yesterday.
To my knowledge the Art Directors from now on to this project are Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr (please confirm with somehow other than telecommuning).
