He tells Iron City Rocks: "We hit it off as people really well, and Lemmy was impressed with me." Lips says Motorhead's management approached him to replace Eddie Clark on tour in 1982.

He adds: "I couldn't be in two places at once. It wasn't possible to do it. I don't regret the decision and at the end of the day, Lemmy really respected the fact that I stuck to my guns, which was his main philosophy. He just thought, 'You'd fit in with me no problem, because we're from the same tree, the same branch.'" Read more here.
