Lemmy Talks Jeff Hanneman and New Album
The iconic Motorhead's bassist Lemmy has recently chatted with Artisan News at this year's Golden Gods Awards ceremony. During the interview, Lemmy spoke about the recent death of Slayer's Jeff Hanneman: "Obviously it's terrible. I don't know how you could say anything else. It's just awful. We toured with him a couple of times ... I knew him. He was a friend of mine." He was also asked about the band's upcoming recording and touring plans: "We're half way through a new album right now, and we're going to Europe for some festivals, to do the usual European thing later in the year. I dunno about the summer yet. We're trying to get some American shows in the summer." The frontman was also asked why he thought Motorhead connected with so many fans. His response was simply: "because they like us." Motorhead recently had to cancel shows in Austria and Italy due to Lemmy suffering an unspecified hematoma. It is not the first health problem for the frontman in recent times. It was revealed that he has been fitted with a defibrillator because of an irregular heart beat.
