Lemmy Ready For Motorhead's Return To The Stage
"I think it's going to be really a joy, once I get back into it," he tells Rolling Stone. "Then it will be OK." Motorhead were forced to postpone the fall European trek – now set to start February 13 in Glasgow, Scotland – 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 and he continues to deal with diabetes.
"There is nothing weirder than having everything you are taken from you in one day – bingo," according to Lemmy. Rolling Stone reports he now rides an exercise bike every day at his new condo in Los Angeles; his drinking has slowed to a trickle, and the two packs of Marlboro Reds he used to smoke each day are down to one or two cigarettes a day. "Let's face it – it isn't as much fun," he says. "But it can't be as much fun if I die. I don't believe that's much fun, either." more on this story
