“My dream was to get to know Motörhead, my worst nightmare was to follow them…” Pep Bonet


Motörhead Röadkill is a unique visual journey into the life and the hard work of one of the best rock and roll bands in the world.


In the multimedia, photographer Pep Bonet, recounts step by step his first hand experience with “the dirtiest rock n’ roll band in the world” – in the words of founder, bassist and singer Lemmy Kilmister.


Bonet, who has been fan of Motörhead for most of his life, has first met the band in the European tour of 2008, and has being documenting their lives throughout Europe and South America ever since. He also photographed local trial sessions at the recording studio in Los Angeles, as well as spending more personal moments with the band members, underlining their relationships and their different characters.


Through Bonet’s striking images, and accompanied by the photographer’s own voice, we are given an unprecedented insight in every aspect of the production, the performance and the life of this tireless and everlasting rock and roll band.

“There are people who have known Motörhead for decades who have never seen them as intimately as this. Consider yourselves privileged.” Steffan Chirazi


The multimedia was produced in collaboration with José Bautista of Kansei Sounds, and coincides with the recent publication of the book Röadkill in December 2012.
