During a recent interview with the German metal hammer magazine, SABATON a singer Joakim Broden showed covers of several back issues of metal hammer and was invited to comment on each of them. When he saw a cover featuring the iconic MOTORHEAD leader Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, Joakim said: “I met him the first time [in] 2005 or ’03 to Swedish rock festival. I saw it coming. I was standing in the backstage bar. He arrived and was about to order a drink. And I knew he liked Maker’s Mark whiskey. I mean, he likes Jack Daniel’s, and that’s what he usually drinks, but he also liked Maker’s Mark. So I ordered him a double from the other bar, and when he got it, the bartender kind of showed [to Lemmy], ‘It’s from him.’ So he came over and we talked for a while. And he taught me a lesson about being an artist. It was being very nice and polite even if you don’t know the person. And we spent the time drinking. I was like, ‘You don’t have to stay here and hang out with me all the time.’ And he was, like, ‘I think that’s a good thing. You bought me a good whiskey. And I’m having fun. So I asked him, kind of, ‘What do you mean?’ [He said], ‘Yeah, I can pass the time drinking the whiskey you bought me with you. Or I can say no. That was a pretty nice thing to say. Then I asked, ‘What would have happened if I had been an asshole?’ And he was, like, ‘I can drink whiskey really fast.’ [Laughs]”
