Motorhead’s Campbell: We’re like 3 spring chickens
Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell says band mainman Lemmy is “feeling a lot better” and will be back on top form for the band’s tour of Europe in November and December.
Speaking to Kylie Ollson of TeamRock Radio, Campbell added: “We’ve got everything booked, rehearsals booked, so it’s going to be killer.”
The conversation in full is below:
Kylie: Now you mentioned Lemmy – I have to ask, how’s he doing?
Phil: He’s doing really good, actually, yeah. I spoke to him the day before yesterday, he’s just moved into his new house, which is not far from his other place, and he’s feeling a lot better. And we’re looking forward to doing the November/December tour as normal. We’ll be like three spring chickens, you watch. He’s been through a lot with his surgery and stuff. The Wacken festival [where Motorhead were forced to cut short their set]… It was so hot that day, it was so hot everyone was just dying there, like, you know?
Kylie: He’s a trouper, isn’t he?
Phil: Yeah, yeah. The six songs we did play, we played really fucking tight, it was amazing, it was great. But yeah, he’s fine, Lemmy’s fine. It’s all good. So we’ve got everything booked, rehearsals booked, so it’s going to be killer.
