OBEY Giant “Lemmy Damaged Case” Screen Print by Shepard Fairey

OBEY Giant “Lemmy Damaged Case” Screen Print by Shepard Fairey

Tomorrow, OBEY Giant will be releasing this fantastic portrait print of Motörhead’s iconic lead singer Lemmy by Shepard Fairey! As Fairey explained, “I saw Motörhead several times over the years, and they ALWAYS crushed it and were the loudest band I’ve ever seen! The band recorded and toured for 40 years, and I can’t think of a more consistent and reliable musical institution than Motörhead. Motörhead’s founder, singer, bassist, and songwriter, Lemmy Kilmister, is himself as iconic as Motörhead’s “snaggletooth” logo. Lemmy stayed true to the hard-rocking, hard-living lifestyle with a handlebar mustache, cowboy boots, denim, and leather as his perpetual battle uniform to the bitter end. Even though Lemmy looked 50 when he was 30, he never seemed to age a day after that.”

“It was a shock when Lemmy unexpectedly died of cancer… I was convinced that hard rock as a devout religion had made Lemmy immortal! Lemmy may be gone, but the songs and the iconic Motörhead logo live on.” – Shepard
