A former management assistant to MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister has been charged with ripping off the rock'n'roll legend, according to Allstar.
Alex Guerrero is facing multiple counts of forgery and grand theft to the tune of just over $30,000. He's been released on a $15,000 bond and has his first court appearance set for October 9th.
Guerrero had previously worked as contracted assistant in Singerman Entertainment, with a roster including MOTÖRHEAD, ZEBRAHEAD, MISFITS, and SLAVES ON DOPE. Guerrero worked at the company for four or five years before leaving in 2001, according to company head Todd Singerman.
"He watered my plants when I was on tour," Kilmister told Allstar of Guerrero, who currently represents MUSHROOMHEAD, BOY SETS FIRE, and Maverick's newly-signed STAGE, under the Spivak Entertainment umbrella. Lemmy also alleges that while Guerrero had access to his house he "got his hands on a checkbook and just wrote checks out to himself." It took a year for the infractions to come to light, and another year to investigate.
Kilmister will be unveiling his new autobiography, White Line Fever, at several book signing events in Europe, while MOTÖRHEAD tours the continent with ANTHRAX starting on October 13th in Manchester, England. The 320-page book, published by Simon & Schuster, is due out in November and promises a "warts and all" telling of Kilmister's high-octane life and career.
