Lemmy will be 70 on Dec 24th!

Quote
Lemmy has dealt with some serious health issues recently, forcing the indulgent rock legend to scale back on alcohol and kick his cigarette habit. Though Lemmy has made some positive steps forward, he has been struggling with poor health in recent months, leading to MOTÖRHEAD's touring schedule being disrupted.

But the rock icon claims that he is doing just fine and was people to stop asking about his health.

He told Classic Rock: "I'm sick of the fucking, 'Are you going to die?' line of questioning. It's getting really old, that question. I’m alright. I'm going out there and doing my best.

"I have good days and bad days but mostly I've been doing alright. The last tour of the States was very good."

Lemmy, who will be 70 years old this month, told Classic Rock he has no intention of retiring.
He said: "It's when you get to 60 when everything starts to go pear-shaped. Everyone thinks that becoming an older guy is easy, but you never consider it fully. It comes as quite a shock. But the thing is, I don't want to give in to it."

"I don't do regrets," he said. "Regrets are pointless. It's too late for regrets. You've already done it, haven't you? You've lived your life. No point wishing you could change it.

"There are a couple of things I might have done differently, but nothing major; nothing that would have made that much of a difference.

"I'm pretty happy with the way things have turned out. I like to think I've brought a lot of joy to a lot of people all over the world. I'm true to myself and I'm straight with people."

Thousands call for new element to be named after Lemmy:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03dp344

The heaviest of heavy metals - Lemmium? Except that Lemmy always said that Motorhead weren't a heavy metal band and that he felt that he had more in common with the punks!

Anyway, I'm sure it would have made him laugh:

I thought that was rather a nice tribute.

He's done it before of course:

Not so sure about this petition though:

I see that the other one is now over 111,000 signatures!
