MOTORHEAD's Lemmy: Stop Asking Me When I'm Going To Die!
The last few years haven't been too kind to Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister's health. Just earlier this year, he stopped a show mid-way because he was too sick to perform. Lemmy has changed his habits up a bit, but a life of partying is starting to catch up with him.
But Lemmy is still alive and kicking. And you know what he's really sick of? He's sick of people asking him about when he's going to die. Speaking to Classic Rock, the 69-year-old rock legend said:
"I'm sick of the fucking, 'Are you going to die?' line of questioning. It's getting really old, that question. I’m alright. I'm going out there and doing my best. "I have good days and bad days but mostly I've been doing alright. The last tour of the States was very good."
Lemmy turns 70 this month and has no intention of retiring:
"It's when you get to 60 when everything starts to go pear-shaped. Everyone thinks that becoming an older guy is easy, but you never consider it fully. It comes as quite a shock. But the thing is, I don't want to give in to it."
When asked if these health issues forced Lemmy to confront his own mortality, Lemmy was like ok, whatever:
"Death is an inevitability, isn't it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don't worry about it. I'm ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn't complain. It's been good."
Lemmy will always be Lemmy and we will always love him for it!
