Motorhead's Lemmy Vows To Continue Music If His Health Falters
(hennemusic) As Motorhead prepare to release their 21st album, "Aftershock", later this month and launch a fall tour early next month to promote it, frontman Lemmy Kilmister tells Classic Rock that he's leaving his summer health scare behind him. "It was nothing; I'm over it," says Lemmy of his hospital stint.
The band canceled a series of shows on their summer European festival tour following doctor's orders after Lemmy suffered a haematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel) and needed to address the issue; the bassist had previously been fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems. "I can still stand at that mic every night and play my songs," explains Lemmy. "I'm getting better. By the time the tour comes around I'll be ready."
If it comes to the point that he can no longer tour, Lemmy vows: "We plan to go on. Maybe we'll just make albums – we'll be like The Beatles after 1966." more on this story
