That’s how Lemmy Kilmister rolls. He’s candid. So when you ask the living legend, whose cock has been sipped by more harlots than than you can even imagine, a question, expect an honest response.
Speaking to Guitar International recently, Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister says he’s never thought of following trends and thinks it’s ridic that some bands embark on a gazillion farewell tours. He’s like me — he thinks one farewell tour should suffice.
“We’re not ready to do a farewell yet,” says Lemmy. “I don’t know if we will do it eventually, ’cause we never felt like we should say farewell, ’cause we’re still going. It’s pathetic for bands to be announcing a third and fourth farewell tour.”
And no, don’t expect the band to change its style for the sake of making moolah.
“We’ve done some different stuff in our time but always framed it within Motörhead. Like what we did on 1916 where we used cellos, violins and pianos. The songs sound like Motörhead because that’s who we are. It’d be stupid to say, let’s make major changes ’cause we don’t want to. We’re Motörhead and we play Motörhead music and why would we want to play anything else?”
I don’t know, Lemmy. I don’t know why you would want to.
