Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister Is ‘Alive and Kicking’ After Shortened Germany Set
The band performed a six-song set with Lemmy, who has been dealing with health issues, exiting the stage early and an announcement being made to the crowd that the show was over. Rumors started circulating about the frontman's health and what had happened, which Phil Campbell swiftly put to rest.
In his latest posting, Campbell states:
Contrary to some reports, Lem is alive and kicking so take no notice of these rumours from a--hole tweeters- Phil Campbell (@MotorheadPhil)
In addition, the Official Motorhead Facebook page offered this update:
The show had to go on because that's how Lemmy rolls. Even though he was not 100% fit, he refused to feel he was letting the 85,000 Wacken fans down. They kicked ass in the 100+degree heat for a shortened, but powerful, set before, Lemmy finally realized he might have bitten off a little more than he could chew. Thus he will embark upon the recuperation recommended. We know that rumors are flying around, but once he fully recharges, Motörhead will be back, don't you worry!
Motorhead are expected to return to the road this fall, supporting the upcoming release of their 'Aftershock' album.
