Do you remember the Clutch set

I was going to do a review of this show anyway, so here goes:

First off, I'll tell you I won't be posting any setlists since I don't go to shows with a notepad... I go with money for beer! passty was nice enough to post the Motorhead setlist anyway, and I'll be able to tell you some Clutch songs that they definitely did play.

First of all, my buddy and I got to the Kool Haus (worst venue name ever) just as Valient Thorr were taking the stage. Since I'm not familiar with the band at all, I can't tell you what they played, but their set had great energy and they seemed to play well. At one point the singer went down into the audience. I think he was trying to get a wall of death going but I don't think it worked. I couldn't really see from where we were standing. We spent part of their set buying beer and t-shirts (I got a Clutch one, he got a Motorhead one).

So Clutch takes the stage, and let me say... FUCKING AWESOME. There aren't many bands who have the same kind of talent as Clutch. They absolutely stole the show from Motorhead. They played the following songs, plus a few more from albums that I'm not very familiar with:

The Mob Goes Wild
Cypress Grove
Promoter
La Curandera
Open Up the Border
Immortal
Abraham Lincoln

The set was fantastic and reminded me of why, 9 years ago when I first saw them I was totally blown away since I had never even heard them before that.

Now, I know I said Clutch stole the show, but that's not to say that Motorhead were bad in any way. In fact, that was THE LOUDEST set EVER. I've never been so deaf after a show and left wishing I had brought earplugs. The band played perfectly, but the only problem with Motorhead is that they really only have two speeds -- fast and mid-paced, so all their songs kind of run together. Neil from Clutch came out for Killed By Death which was cool. Lemmy's a fucking machine. That is all.

Was Lemmy hating on other bands all night? Just watched a 30 min show on palladia and he said Kiss sucks and isn't rock n roll. Then they broke into Going to Brazil which is total generic blues ripoff song.

Lol no Lemmy was total class. Exactly what I expected. And Kiss does fucking suck, so who cares?

If Lemmy were a true legend he wouldn't have to keep hating on bands that play bigger arenas, write better and heavier music and blow him off the stage live. Just sayin'

Genuinely, if anyone has the right to call these bands out, its Lemmy. He is the epitomy of Rock n Roll. I would imagine it annoys him to see KISS out there, being the biggest sell outs the rock world have EVER seen, and he has the right to say he thinks they suck.

Fixed. Also, the band in question features Gene Simmons. However, this is the last I'm saying about Kiss. I'd rather that this thread house discussions about Motorhead, Clutch and Valient Thorr's performances, and not about whether Lemmy, one of the true pioneers of the heavy metal genre may or may not be a dick.

Never EVER say that to him. He despises being regarded as a heavy metal influence, despite his influence being obvious throughout the musical movement. Its sorta funny really!

Yeah I know, he regards heavy metal as slow and boring.

I wish I could agree with ya but this guy talks out of his ass and his hater tactics are becoming annoying. Can't think of anything more sellout than this:

I always thought Lemmy was cool but never thought their music was great outside of 4 or 5 songs. 24 years and 5 great songs isn't an impressive ratio. I'd take God of Thunder, She & Black Diamond over any 3 Motorhead songs personally. Ace of Spades, Iron Fist & Killed by Death are great songs but I have a hard time picking 4 and 5.

Agreed, add Overkill to that list...and yeah Kiss has 8-10 classics while Motorhead has a couple. Just being honest.

You saved me the trouble of doing this. I was wondering what Clutchs set was, since I didn't hear a lot of songs I knew, which was disappointing.

He might not like the moniker "Heavy Metal" for Motörhead, but do you honestly think that he doesn't know that 99% of the metalbands out there where influenced by his little band?

Actually, Motörhead was founded at the end of the seventies.
