Lemmy Kilmister is a bad-ass mothahumper, who tells it like it is, lives hard, and loves harder.
The Motörhead frontman has been sick as of late, and says in a new statement it was a “tough decision” to cancel the remaining eight shows of the group’s European festival trek.
But Lemmy’s in good spirits, it seems.
“I’d like to thank everyone who wish me well,” says Lemmy.
“It was a tough decision for me as I don’t like to disappoint the fans, especially in times where economy is bad and people spent their money to see us,” he adds. “But sometimes you can’t do anything else than following doctor’s order, but be sure we will be back and kick everybody’s ass.”
I hope that’s true.
I somehow feel like Lemmy’s condition is a lot worse than the band’s letting on.
Lemmy suffered a haematoma last month, and has been recently fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems.
The band says in a statement that “doctors strongly advised that Lemmy needs to take his time to get his body back in balance. To achieve this, the doctor and Lemmy agreed that it would be best to take it easy for a while. While saying this, we can assure that the fall tour will be as explosive, loud and incredible as ever.”
I hope Lemmy’s gonna be alright.
