Dizzy Reed Reveals How He Ended Up Playing on Lemmy’s 2002 Motorhead Album “Hammered”
Earlier this week Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed discussed how he ended up playing on Lemmy’s 2002 Motorhead album “Hammered” in a new interview with Mitch Lafon. The exchange went as follows:
There’s one guest appearance you made years ago on the Motorhead album called ‘Hammered’ . Talk to me about having a track [‘Mine All Mine’] with Lemmy and the guys.
“You know, it was one of those things. I was sitting at home watching something on TV, I don’t remember – it was later, it was 9 o’clock in the evening – I got a phone call, they asked me if I can come to track some stuff for Motorhead.
“And I said, ‘Yes, I’ll drop whatever I’m doing and I’ll come to do it right now,’ and I ended going up to a house up at Hollywood Hill and laid it down with Lemmy. We hung out in the kitchen, drank some Jack for about two hours afterward and just talked.
“It was a great experience, and I was kind of pinching myself, really, because it really came out of the left field, but it was great to be a part of that, Lemmy was so cool.
“He’s very missed, he definitely left his mark on music and certainly on this town, so he’s missed. But that was a great experience, I’m so lucky that things like that can happen.”

Dizzy Reed Praises Richard Fortus
Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed appeared on Mitch Lafon’s podcast to discuss the band, his side project H&B and other things. He was asked about guitarist Richard Fortus and said the following:
Richard Fortus, I don’t think people give him enough credit…
“He’s probably the most versatile guitar player, most versatile musician that I know. He can do it all, and he does it all.
“He works really hard too, man, and it works. Everything sort of gels together. We got Frank [Ferrer] on drums who’s amazing, and Melissa [Reese, keyboards] who’s also incredible. It’s a blast, man. “
Motley Crue Fans Blast the Band Over “Ridiculous” Meet and Greet Packages!
Motley Crue fans have accused promoters of trying to take advantage of fans with their ridiculous VIP Meet & Greet packages for the band’s summer 2020 stadium tour with Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett. They also discussed past meet and greets and hteir experiences.
Stacebabe posted on Reddit, “Wild side is $4.5k!!! No way in hell!!” Jedifire wrote, “I didn’t pay, I was the plus one for a friend of mine who bought Nikki’s stage played bass. I don’t know what the price was, and my understanding was there were only two per show in the tour, but we got to spend about 10-15 minutes alone talking with Nikki (and photographer and assistant).
This was done I believe after the whole band meet and greet but I will say that it was nice to have an I rushed conversation with Nikki. That might be a better option for some of he is offering something similar in this tour. Sorry about rambling, I’ve had a few beers.”
Androidcoma gave his two cents “It’s not worth the $1500+, just from experience seeing other bands do it, it’s super quick, super impersonal, and the price this time around is flat out absurd vs if it was a few hundred bucks.It’s definitely priced for the older crowd or anyone that’s well off that can afford it, ’cause it’s straight up luxury to pay that much just to get a quick photo and some things signed.”
