How Lemmy put Liam off his drink
Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher swore off his standard loudmouth behaviour when he sat down on a plane and realised Lemmy was on board too.
He decided to keep quiet in case he landed in trouble with the Motorhead icon – but Lemmy had different ideas.
Gallagher tells GQ: “I met Lemmy once on a plane. I thought, ‘I’m not going to drink on this flight – I’m going to wind my neck in.’ Can I get a water please?
“Next minute a pair of cowboy boots get put down beside me. He looked at me and said, ‘What the fuck are you doing drinking water?’”
Meanwhile, Lemmy has admitted his estimate of having slept with 1000 women is probably too low – but even though he’s doubled the figure he insists it’s “not that impressive.”
“It’s probably more like 2000 now,” he says. “That might seem like a lot; but I’ve never been married and I’ve been fucking women since I was 16. That’s less than one a week.”
Motorhead – who will receive a Golden God award from Classic Rock‘s sister title Metal Hammer on Monday – play the Download main stage today at 5.10pm.
