Lemmy Kilmister Urges Motorhead Fans Not To Buy Band’s New Retrospective Collection

Motorhead_Complete Early Years collectionPackaged in a skull with eyes that light up in red, the new 15-disc Motorhead collection certainly grabs your attention. So does the retail price — and that has prompted frontman Lemmy Kilmister to urge his fans to steer clear of the ‘Complete Early Years Box Set,’ now in stores.

“Unfortunately, greed once again rears its yapping head,” Kilmister said in reference to the sticker price, which is in the $600 range. “I would advise against it, even for the most rabid completists!”

The band members further distanced themselves from the project by releasing a statement that said Motorhead had “no control over what’s done with these early songs,” adding they “don’t want fans to think that the band is involved in putting out such a costly box set.”

Meanwhile, Motorhead’s tour in support of an album they’d like their fans to buy, 2011′s ‘The World Is Yours,’ continues tonight (Feb. 21) in Kent, Wash., and run through a Feb. 28 gig in Denver. Check out their complete itinerary here.
