Last week, it was revealed that Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister isn’t superhuman after all when guitarist Phil Campbell revealed that Lemmy had been outfitted with a defibrillator. Those health fears escalated earlier this week after Motörhead were forced to pull out of two European shows earlier this week due to his health issues. And while nobody was ready to pronounce him dead, there was definitely quite a bit of concern about how healthy the 68 year-old was. Thankfully, his management updated his Facebook page with an update:
We are happy to announce that despite rumors to the contrary, Lemmy is alive, breathing, talking, f**king, drinking, eating, reading and will be back to playing shows shortly. As reported, he did undergo a Motor-pit-stop for some medical maintenance this past spring, and the timing of his recent illness was unfortunate in that it came so soon after that. Lemmy & Co believe in the ‘keep calm and carry on’ way of thinking. Fans can anticipate more Motörhead live action this summer, as well as the most exciting Motörhead in years, Aftershock, this Fall.
Notice the update didn’t say “snorting,” which is good. It’s also good to know that Lemmy is “f**king” a lot, presumably from a hospital bed. If there’s anyone that can weather a health issue or two, it’s Lemmy.
