Hellraising rocker Lemmy was expelled from school at the age of 15 after attacking the headmaster with his own cane.

The singer, whose real name is Ian Kilmister, snapped when the cruel teacher insisted on administering corporal punishment on his already hurt hand.

Lemmy explains, "I had cut my finger and it was taking ages to heal. I was up for two strokes of the cane from the headmaster. One on each hand. I said, 'Can I have them both on the right?' But he went straight for the left and whacked it. The whole thing burst open, blood everywhere. So I grabbed the cane off him and smacked him round the head with it. That showed the b**tard."
