Motorhead Reveal Cause Of Lemmy's Health Problems

(hennemusic) Motorhead have issued an update on the health status of frontman Lemmy Kilmister, revealing the nature of his illness, following a recent series of shortened and cancelled shows.

"The wait is over and the Doc has spoken," says the band "Lemmy had a lung infection (exacerbated by that Denver altitude) which has now been taken care of. Subsequently, Lemmy's ready to give it a go in St. Louis at The Pageant Theater on Tuesday, Sept 8th where Motörhead will continue the 40th Anniversary tour in support of their new album 'Bad Magic'.

"Amidst all the wonderful support Lemmy has received, many have rightfully said he owes us nothing as he has given us everything," they added. "We, however, owe Lemmy something…our total respect for his fierce, single-minded and beautifully stubborn determination to continue burning asphalt, playing rock'n'roll and live where he has always been most comfortable - on the road! Thanks again for all your support and see you soon!"

Lemmy first showed signs of trouble at an August 27 show in Salt Lake City when he shut down the performance after four songs after experiencing difficulty with his breathing due to the altitude. Read more here.
