Motorhead Cancel Remaining European Dates
Lemmy's health issues have forced the band to pull more dates.Following reports last week that the band had to cancel two dates due to Lemmy's ill health, Motorhead have now cancelled all remaining European appearances for the summer.
Drummer Mikkey Dee informed Aftonbladet that:
"It all started when he received a nasty blow to the hip. Then in the Royal Kensington in London a fire alarm went off - he had to go eight floors at night. It was hopeless. He needs to drain fluid from the body, and it can't be done too quickly. While you're lying down and can't move you can easily get pneumonia."
He also added: "He's so sad - it has a greater effect on him than it would have on someone else. It's like chopping the hands off a pianist. He's on the mend; however, it takes longer for him."
Here at Planet Rock, we're sure you'll join us in wishing Lemmy a speedy recovery and a return to the stage soon!
