Vintage Lemmy

Just a day after reporting Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley revealed their latest joint venture KISS wine and KISS beer, comes word that Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has just launched a line of wines. The Ace of Spades crooner launched a Shiraz in Sweden last year, selling over 120,000 bottles of the fermented grape. The wine will soon be available in his native UK. Kilmister claims the wine has been, "hitting Scandinavia like a Lancaster bomber," and goes on to warn potential sommoliers: "approach it with caution. I mean, wine is deceptive, anything could happen." In addition to KISS, you can add Lemmy to a list of rockers come wine producers including Whitesnake, AC/DC and Queensrÿche's Geoff Tate.
