Lemmy Kilmister, badass bassist and singer for Motörhead, one of the most iconic rock bands of the British Empire, has sadly had to admit that he is not immortal. Following health issues for diabetes, Lemmy, 68, has had to back down from touring this Spring as doctors have advised him not to return to such a punishing lifestyle so soon after his treatment. Even Rock Gods, it seems, need to heed some Hippocratic wisdom every now and again, especially those who have partied as hard as hard as Mr Kilmister. One urban legend goes that doctors told him he needed to keep drinking whiskey by the barrel, keep taking shit tons of speed and keep sniffing miles of lines of cocaine, because if he didn’t his body would go into shock and he would die. Maybe he is immortal after all.
