Motorhead Address Lemmy Kilmister’s Health + Commitment to Touring
Motorhead were forced to cancel some European dates at festivals this summer due to Lemmy Kilmister‘s health. The frontman and bassist, who is stronger than most mere mortals, had suffered from a hematoma, which is the collection of blood outside of a vessel. Additionally, he had been outfitted with a defibrillator to help manage his heart problems. Guitarist Phil Campbell offered a fresh update about his frontman’s health and his side project.
Below is his posting:
Hey everyone out there. Better prepare yourselves big time, cos our mindblowing new record “Afterschock” will be coming out! Lemmy is on the mend and we are gonna be touring our asses off!!! Business as usual real soon!- Phil
That’s all good news. Lemmy is getting better, which we never doubted, since he is made of iron. The new album ‘Aftershock’ is on its way this September, along with lots of touring to follow, proving that nothing can sideline Lemmy for too long.
Campbell also has a side project — the Phil Campbell All Star Band, which will perform at Bloodstock Open Air in August in England. The band features members of Straight Lines, The People The Poet, Dopamine and Attack Attack. That’s an interesting amalgamation of bands to pull from to say the least. We’ll look forward to YouTube footage from their performance, set for Aug. 11, to pop up online.
