    Hope the Kilmister is feeling better soon. Bugger’s tough as nails but, sometimes ya gotta put the Jack down.

    I would like to see that Priest setlist to check out what they added to the set. Get well soon, Lemmy.

    Smoking and boozing, Just like a scratched record constantly repeating itself. I’m surprised Lemmy is still alive. Time to hang it up already.

    Lemmy turns 70 this year. How many 70 year-old people live his lifestyle? He’s a legend, a rock icon, a badass among badasses but at the end of the day he’s also human. And he’s also diabetic. He’s put a LOT of miles on his body and the older he gets, the more it’s going to show. But that’s true for us all, isn’t it? No one is indestructible, not even Lemmy.

    Get well soon Lemmy!

    “That’s the way I like it baby, I don’t wanna live forever!”

    Lemmy…he will not retire. He will croak on the stage. If he stops, he will die. He is a flesh and blood locomotive that keeps the rock rolling. The shepard of all things loud, of all things monsterous, of all things that are good ol’ rock n’ roll. Here’s to a speedy recovery, Lem!
