Dave Grohl remembered going to Lemmy’s apartment for the first time ever, telling Lars Ulrich on his It’s Electric show (via Alternative Nation):
“I was flipping out. Once you get to the building, it’s like that weird ‘Pulp Fiction’ scene, I don’t know, f*ck dude.
“So I’m walking in like, ‘Am I about to get assassinated right now?’ Then I look up on the balcony and there’s a guy who works for him [saying], ‘Up here!’
“So I go up and I walk into the apartment, it was just like a hoarder maze of p*rn, magazines, f*cking N*zi stuff all over the place. God bless him, he wasn’t a N*zi, but he collected that sh*t.
“I come around the corner and he’s sitting there on the couch in his f*cking g-string underwear that I’ll never forget, it had a black widow right on the dick.
“It was black, his black widow, and f*cking nothing else on; he’d just dyed his hair black.
“He’s on the phone doing a [phone interview], and there’s a f*cking video game on pause on the TV. He’s [mumbling], I sit down on the couch like, ‘What is going on right now?’
“He goes, ‘Want a drink?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah.’ The way he did it was so cool, this dude in the kitchen had the ice and Coke, but Lemmy kept the bottle right next to him.”
Saying how the drink Lemmy poured was mostly liquor, Dave added:
“There’s a 1/3 of an inch left for Coke.”
Grohl then said Lemmy started playing him a new Motorhead album, but he had to pee. However, he held it in for awhile out of fear of what the bathroom would look like. Explaining how he ultimately went in, Dave continued:
“I walk into the bathroom, and I think he had just dyed his hair, because it looked like someone had just blown their head off in the f*cking sink.
“I’m peeing and I go to wash my hands, and I’m like, ‘Oh sh*t, where’s the towel?’ I’m like no no no, there’s dirty robes hanging on this thing, and I’m like f*ck!
“I go to barely touch one, and they all fall to the ground. There’s cologne everywhere, it was the greatest day of my entire life.
“In every room there was a video game on a TV paused.”
