MotÃ¶rhead Say New Box Set Is Waste of Money, Even for Completists
Following in the footsteps of Trent Reznor, who told fans last year not to buy the reissued version of Nine Inch Nails‘ debut, ‘Pretty Hate Machine,’ Lemmy Kilmister is urging the Motörhead faithful to steer clear of a new box set priced at more than $600.
“Unfortunately greed once again rears its yapping head,” said Lemmy, according to CNN. “I would advise against it even for the most rabid completists!”
The collection in question, “The Complete Early Years Box Set,” includes all eight of the iconic group’s early albums, as well as handful of singles and other goodies, such as posters and a photo book.
“Motörhead have no control over what’s done with these early songs, and don’t want fans to think that the band is involved in putting out such a costly box set,” the band said, washing its hands of the matter.
