When you think of the 60s, 70s, and 80s - one of the first things that comes to mind is how groovy everyone looked. During this era, you had some crazy great fashion styles such as hot pants, knee high leather boots, and feathered hair.

There's nothing cooler than Lemmy from Motorhead. So how did these two become friends?

At the time Samantha Fox was not yet regarded as an 80s pop star - she was more known for going topless on Page 3 of the British tabloid, The Sun. Lemmy met Fox when she was 17-years old. She told him how much she loved Motorhead, AC/DC, Van Halen, and Kiss. Lemmy was surprised at her musical tastes and said they should do a song together. They wrote a song called, Beauty and the Beast - which never ended up getting released.

The unlikely duo stayed friends over the years - and the rest is rock history.

First of all, pretty great cast for this movie that I knew very little about: Bill Paxton, Liam Neeson and Patrick Swayze, as well as Ben Stiller and Helen Hunt in smaller roles. Simple movie fish-out-of-water premise: A Chicago cop, originally from some hillbilly town sets out to find the killer of his brother. Meanwhile, his other hillbilly brothers decides to find the killer himself. Action ensues.

Alec Baldwin, Robert De Niro, Michael Keaton, Ray Liotta, John Malkovich, Jack Nicholson, Sean Penn, Ron Perlman, and Tim Robbins were considered for roles in this forgettable movie. .
