Lemmy Forced To Leave Stage Three Songs Into Motorhead Show

(Classic Rock) Motorhead icon Lemmy Kilmister stopped the band's show in Texas last night and admitted: "I can't do it." They managed to deliver three tracks before the 69-year-old introduced their track Metropolis, but then told the crowd he couldn't continue, and led his bandmates off stage at Emo's in Austin.

It follows his walk-off last week in Salt Lake City, where the band cited the high altitude as the reason behind Lemmy's inability to breathe. They cancelled the following night's show in Denver, at an even higher altitude.
