Lemmy is probably one of the most awesome people to have ever lived. He’s seriously fucking awesome. Having him in Brutal Legend instantly makes the game more awesome to the power of ten. But what, Tim-Schafer-talking-to-VG247-at-E3, was Lemmy like to work with?

“Lemmy was a really mellow guy, a really quiet guy,” Schafer told us. “He was really friendly, actually. He invited me to his house. I got to see his collection of knives.

“He’s a really friendly guy. He lives in West Hollywood. He likes to go to the Rainbow Rooms and chat to his fans, stuff like that. He’s a very down to earth guy.

And Lemmy has stories. Stories of ultimate rock.

“He’s got all these great stories,” Schafer added. “You know, he used to be a roadie himself, for Jimi Hendrix. He’s really lived life, you know what I’m saying?”

We do, Tim. We know what you’re saying. Brutal Legend, officially now the most awesome videogame this year, releases this October.
