Hollywood Motel 4/8/22


In April, British Rock heavyweights, Leader of Down, who were the final band of Motörhead's late great Würzel, unleashed their second album, 'The Screwtape Letters', to amazing reviews, consisting of 10 blockbusting tracks which took no prisoners with their own brand of heavy Rock ‘n’ Roll, that consequently hit the top ten in the UK Amazon Heavy Rock Charts, including today's Video Of The Day, 'Hollywood Motel', that was filmed on location in LA (home of The Hollywood Motel) and in the UK. 'Holloway Motel' is inspired by the motel of the same name that is situated on the West Hollywood stretch of Route 66, almost opposite the iconic bar Barneys Beanery, which was the regular drinking haunt of legends such as Jim Morrison. It was at the Holloway Motel that bass player Tim Atkinson and original Leader of Down drummer Steve Clarke used to stay whilst visiting Lemmy for the recording of 'Paradise Turned Into Dust', which was the first single from their critically acclaimed 2018 debut album, 'Cascade Into Chaos'.
