British rock legend Lemmy might not have the right to vote in the Presidential election today, but he's made a plea to his US fans not to vote for the "fking monster" Mitt Romney.
Lemmy was speaking to Rolling Stone about Chuck Berry, who once teared up because he always dreamed of seeing a black President, when he went into a political tirade:
"I would have said America wasn't ready for [a black President]," Lemmy said. "And I don't think they were, because they're trying to drag him down now. I mean, the poor f-ker's only just gotten rid of all that George Bush sh-t that he left, or is trying to. And he's being stonewalled by the fking Congress all the time. I don't know how he's gotten anything done.
"I mean the alternative is Mitt Romney. Please, please don't vote for Mitt Romney. F-ck him. Repeal abortion law is the first thing he'll do. F-king monster."
Lemmy went on to say that Motorhead plans to write new material in January and February, after touring Europe in the run up to the Christmas period. They'll have a break from touring the US after two runs this year, but expect to hit the North American road again at some point in 2013.
Does Lemmy have the wrong impression of Mitt Romney, or will he really do something as drastic as repeal abortion law? Let us know your last-minute views in the comments.
