Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister recently gave an update on his health, confirming he is feeling much better, although "not good yet."

Chatting with Full Metal Jackie (via Loudwire), Lemmy was instantly asked about his health following a series of recent scares.

"I have been ill for about a year but I am pulling out of it. I am getting better now," the frontman said. Asked on whether he's feeling good, he added, "Not good yet, but I am feeling a lot better than I did, which was terrible."

Seeing that the mentioned health scares caused several concert and tour delays, Kilmister admitted missing the road and the fans. "I am looking forward to the smell of the crowd again, you know?" he said.

Focusing on the band's upcoming MotorBoat cruise featuring the likes of Megadeth, Anthrax, Zakk Wylde and the hard rock icons themselves, Lemmy explained, "It is something we haven't done. We have played in places where there is a truck door to get off the stage, we've played in jail, we've played a lot of weird places but we have never been on a boat.

"I used to go when I went up to Liverpool to go see the Beatles, they used to have rock 'n' roll cruises on these two old ferry boats. You get five bands and you go out for three or four hours and they do a stage and come back in. I used to go on those so I got the idea. I just said the people who run it put their heads together and know what they are doing. Otherwise it would be a terrible fiasco, you know?" Kilmister concluded.

    Lemmy please don't push your limits too much. We rockers, punks, metalheads and others need you.
    This is where UG plays the cruellest of pranks and tomorrow reveals the "real" news in which Lemmy is dead. I could barely bring myself to even type that... jeezus...
    Silly boy, Lemmy can't die until the Armageddon is upon us! Dont you know he is the herald of the apocalypse? His death causes the end of times. . . which he'll survive.
    "'I'm Looking Forward to the Smell of Crowd'" Sometimes, taking words like "the" out of the article title works, but sometimes, UG, it doesn't. In this instance it just sounds like broken English and nothing more.
