Motorhead Address Lemmy's Health Issues
The legendary frontman recently suffered a hematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel), which caused Motorhead to pull out of three earlier dates; this came on the heels of news that the bassist had been fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems.
"Regretfully, Motorhead announces it has had to cancel its remaining six summer festival appearances," said the group. "The band hate to let their fans down by missing any shows, but they expect to be back in full force this Fall."
"As you may have heard, earlier this Spring Lemmy had some medical maintenance for the long-term good," continued the band. "He was, at that time, advised to rest, but once feeling better, he of course resumed his life as usual. He has since been advised that he should immediately take some more time to rest."
