August 3rd, 2017

Hard rock group Motörhead have released a music video for their cover of David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’, which can be viewed below.

“It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be,” says guitarist Phil Campbell, “and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”

“He was very, very proud of it,” says drummer Mikkey Dee, “not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be — fun!”
