HE might be best known for fronting rock legends Motorhead, but Lemmy has revealed his pride at his Scots roots.

The rocker - real name Ian Fraser Kilmister - revealed in a BBC Four programme that he keeps a framed Fraser clan crest in his house in Los Angeles.

The bassist, 69, keeps the crest next to his collection of gold discs, won for a variety of achievements including one for the band’s biggest hit Ace of Spades.

Lemmy has lived in the relatively modest two-bedroom flat since 1990, and has crammed it full of memorabilia.

He has said in the past that he bought the flat due to its proximity to his favourite Hollywood bar.

A spokesperson for Clan Fraser of Lovat said: “We are delighted to hear Lemmy is a member of the Fraser clan.”
