27th February 2017

Last summer at Wacken, Motörhead's unique and iconic Boomber 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..."
