Lemmy Kilmister had been leading Motörhead for 16 years by the time 1916 was recorded in 1991.

    Sorry...

    ...but this is not so good. The truth must be told! The tracks are too simple except from "One to Sing the Blues", "I'm So Bad" and "No Voices in the Sky". The slow track "Love me forever" is a classic too but Lemmy's voice isn't good enough for it. I'd like to hear it sang by a woman.
