In a recent interview with Classic Rock, MOTÖRHEAD frontmann Lemmy said he is ‘sick’ of being asked when he’s going to die.
Lemmy has struggled with ill health in recent years, and a number of shows on the band’s recent US tour were cancelled or stopped early as he suffered with a lung infection, exacerbated by high altitude.
He tells Classic Rock: “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 adds that, even though he’s approaching 70, he has no intention of retiring.
He says: “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.”
