27th February 2017

Last summer at Wacken, Motörhead's unique and iconic Bomber lighting rig took what was said to be it's final flight.

In an emotional tribute to Lemmy at the world's biggest Metal festival, Mikkey Dee announced from the stage:

"We want to talk to you a little bit here. Do you guys realise that this was the last time you see the Bomber flying. I know. It's so sad. But to tell you the truth... let's celebrate Lemmy and let's celebrate Motörhead... as good as we can... and keep the memory going."

But...

The Bomber has re-appeared in the rock'n'roll skies and it's all for rock'n'roll...

The new single from Aussie rockers Airbourne is an anthemic tribute to Lemmy, a man the band looked up to and loved, both as a friend who featured in their debut video driving a HGV with the band playing away in the back, and as a genuine legend of the rock'n'roll world.

And for Airbourne's new video, the boat had to be pushed out, or in this case, the Bomber flown, and you can enjoy this great video on Vevo right here.

Airbourne frontman Joel O'Keeffe stated:

"When Motörhead played, it didn't matter what was happening in the world at that point – Motörhead was onstage, that was it. Everything was dialled in and the crowd were there and lovin' it – all for rock'n'roll!

"Whenever we were on tour, we looked forward to seeing the festival posters with the big Motörhead logo on there, and now there's just a big black hole. 'We are Motörhead, and we play rock'n'roll' - we were so used to hearing that, and when it's not there anymore, it hits you hard...

"Lemmy meant so much to us, and so much to rock'n'roll itself..."

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
