Late Motorhead icon Lemmy is featured in a TV public service announcement that aims to raise awareness of human trafficking.

He delivers part of Rockers United’s message alongside a team including Nikki Sixx, who warns: “One million children a year in the US are kidnapped and forced into a life of sex slavery.”

The charity was created by rock photographer Kevin Estrada. He recently said: “Human trafficking is the second largest criminal industry in the world today, second to drug activity. This is tragically happening to nearly two million girls worldwide every year.”

Motorhead release live album Clean Your Clock – recorded during Lemmy’s final tour last year – on May 27. The icon’s life will be celebrated at this year’s Metal Hammer Golden Gods in London on June 13. Tickets are on sale now, priced just £6.66 (opens in new tab), while voting for the annual awards is currently open.

Martin Kielty

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
