Lemmy needs to heal
Motorhead’s European tour has been postponed as front man Lemmy Killmiester’s health comes into the equation. The front man took to Facebook and said he’s not quite back to what he says is “full fitness and rude health.” This coming from the guy who, in his lifetime, has probably drank more liquor than the volume of Lake Springfield. Lemmy says he’s not about to turn soft and start promoting veganism and alcohol-free drinks, yet, but he is reconfiguring some areas of his life so he can be stronger than ever. Not sure what that means, but more power to ya, Lemmy! Dude’s got diabetes, had a recent meatoma and has some heart issues.
Mars says he's fine
Forget everything you’ve heard or read … Mick Mars’ health is not the reason for a possible final farewell tour from Motley Crue. The guitarist has taken to Twitter to dispel those rumors saying “I am doing fine, my AS has never kept me from touring.” Last week a video of Crue drummer Tommy Lee put out the idea that a farewell tour is just around the corner and may be the last thing from the band on the road. Lee cited Mars’ health condition as a reason, something that front man Vince Neil has hinted at in the past as well. Lee replied to Mars on Twitter and said “it’s probably not so much about your physical health it’s more about our mental health as a band! Haha!” Nice cover, Tommy. Not!
