Olliver: There's clusters of hoarding going on there. The tidy areas are where the collectibles are. He pristinely mounts things on the wall, daggers and Zippo lighters in cases. The rest, stuff is piled. It's a fun place.

When you shot the interview with Lemmy and his son, did you have that little light go off in your head like, "This is the good stuff!"? Could you feel that moment in the room?

Olliver: Oh, yeah. That scene was funny: We finally had Lemmy's attention for a while, and he seemed to be into the conversation we were having. Then the buzzer rang; his son came over. He was early. I was irritated that it was going to mess up the vibe we had. We were filming Lemmy, and I had no idea he was going to say his son was the most valuable thing in the room. I had to pan over quickly. It was a total surprise.

Lemmy: 49% Motherfucker, 51% Son of a Bitch, 100% rock god.

What do you think it's like in the mind of Lemmy?

Olliver: I don't know. That's what we try to get at in our film. It remains somewhat of a mystery.

Orshoski: It's like any other man's mind: He's thinking about girls. He's thinking about fun.

Does anybody not call him "Lemmy"?

Orshoski: People who know him best call him Lem.

Did anybody have anything bad to say about the guy? Nobody said, "Lemmy? Meh."?

Orshoski: No one.
