Hell-raising bassist and Motorhead front man, Lemmy, is today recovering from his world record breaking attempt for the longest bass solo ever.
The marathon slapathon started on Saturday at the band's gig in London's Albert Hall, during the second encore; the iconic Ace of Spades.
Guitarist "Filthy" Phil Campbell takes up the tale:
"We were just getting ready to finish the number when suddenly Lemmy started to improvise a bit. We stuck with him for half and hour or so but in the end we couldn't hack it.
We just finished the gig and left Lem to it. The roadies started to break down the gear and lights and the audience all got fed up and left but Lemmy kept at it"
The Spoof can reveal that the bonkers bassist finally packed it in at 1.30 pm on Sunday afternoon. He told us:
"I was sorta in the zone guys. To tell the truth when I finished I was surprised that 14 hours had passed. But I've had it confirmed that it's a new world record so that's brilliant"
Albert Bilko, caretaker of the Albert Hall commented:
"It's a good job he stopped when he did 'cos Elton John's crowd wanted to get in and set up and it looked as if it was all gonna kick off at one point"
Lemmy's record of 14 hours, 20 minutes and 12 seconds beats the previous holder, Mark King, from pop-funksters level forty two by a full minute
