We’re not saying that Motörhead is underplaying the health conditions of frontman Lemmy Kilmister, and we’re really hoping he recovers soon from his “medical maintenance.” However, the last time there was a post on his Facebook regarding his health, it was ensuring fans that he was “alive, breathing, talking, f**king, drinking eating, reading,” and was closely followed by the band cancelling the remainder of their tour. Earlier today, another update was issued via the frontman’s Facebook page that admits that Lemmy might have ignored doctor’s orders:
As you may have heard, earlier this Spring, Lemmy had some medical maintenance for the long-term good, He was, at that time, advised to rest, but once feeling better, he of course resumed his life as usual. He has since been advised that he should immediately take some more time to rest.
Lemmy says: I’d like to thank everyone who wish me well, 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. But sometimes you can’t do anything else than following doctor’s orders, but be sure we will be back and kick everybody’s ass.
Hopefully, Lemmy is actually taking advice, and he’ll be back to normal in time for Aftershock to come out later this year and the touring that will support it. He’d allegedly been outfitted with a defibrillator, and had a haematoma last week that forced him to cancel the rest of their European tour dates.
