Headmaster Emyr Williams of Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones in Amlwch said, "I was in the deputy's office and a gentleman came to the door. He explained he was a film producer and was very confident, as Americans are."

"I was a little doubtful to begin with, because we do have a security door on reception and I don't know how he got past it, but then realised there was a camera crew outside."

Lemmy - real name an Fraser Willis - had attended the Anglesey school in the 1950s. He was always really into music and we used to play a bit in Benllech," said school friend, Bill Murrell. "We used to go and watch the Anglesey Stranglers, a group from our school who played in Benllech Memorial Hall."

Williams added, "I believe that he was expelled from here. There was something in the newspaper about a teacher trying to give him the cane. I don't know if it's true, but I don't think he left on the best of terms."
