Rock icons Motorhead are officially streaming their new record "Aftershock" in full prior to October 21 release through UDR Gmbh Records. Featuring 14 new tunes, the album clocks in at just over 45 minutes of the band's staple gritty groove. Check out the stream below, courtesy of Yahoo Music. In a recent Classic Rock Magazine interview, frontman Lemmy Kilmister discussed his recent health decline, saying that he' prepared for death, but doesn't intend on slowing down or showing regret. "I don't mind you asking about my health," he kicked off. "I've been poorly. There's no point lying about it or trying to deny it. I've never done that." Lemmy continued, "It was the same when people were telling me to stop smoking. 'You've got to stop smoking, Lem,' they kept saying. F--k you. I don't like people telling me what to do, even if they might be right." The singer/bassist also noted that he stopped drinking Jack and Coke due to his diabetes, saying that he doesn't drink that much anymore. He takes two daily pills for diabetes that have affected his leg circulation, stiffening them and causing him back ache if standing too long. "But I can still stand at that mic every night and play my songs," he stressed (via Blabbermouth). "I wouldn't know about the defibrillator if it wasn't for that f--king lump in my chest. I'm getting better. By the time this article is out, and the tour comes around, I'll be all right. I'll be ready." Lemmy also looked back on his life, saying that he quite happy with the way things turned out. "I don't do regrets," he said. "Regrets are pointless. It's too late for regrets. You've already done it, haven't you? You've lived your life. No point wishing you could change it." Finally, Kilmister was asked on whether the latest health scare made him more conscious of his mortality. "Death is an inevitability, isn't it?" he replied. "You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don't worry about it. I'm ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn't complain. It's been good." "Aftershock" track listing: 01. Heartbreaker 02. Coup De Grace 03. Lost Woman Blues 04. End of Time 05. Do You Believe 06. Death Machin 07. Dust and Glass 08. Going to Mexico 09.

    From Wikipedia: it was claimed that Lemmy had "bedded" in excess of 2,000 women, of course he will not regret anything in his life
    I think he corrected that himself, something closer to 100/150. Still a pretty good ****in innings though!
    Nope, he said 1000, he also did some quick maths to prove that it's not such a brilliant number all things considered.
    Two things will survive the apocalypse. Cockroaches & Lemmy.
    Lemmy does not die, death does Lemmy
    I just pictured a Grim Reaper boning Lemmy...
    Lemmy wouldn't get boned by Grim. Lemmy would make Grim his bitch in his winter home in hell where he reigns as supreme Rock God.
    I assume Grim is a man, and I don't think Lemmy is gay. So we can conclude that he would bone Mrs. Grim in front of Grim in his supreme winter home of hell..where hell has frozen over by his presence.
    Lemmy will probably live longer than any of us Haha
    It's been said that if a nuclear armageddon ever happened, the only things left alive will be cockroaches, Keith Richards and Lemmy.
    If Lemmy did die, its cuz the Grim Reaper offered him an unlimited supply of virgins, speed and Jack Daniels in hell, where Lemmy would've taken over as king simply because he's Lemmy. Rock on you legend \m/
    So....according to the Blabbermouth article, Lemmy has cut way back on his drinking and completely quit smoking. I'm not sure how to feel about this.
    Lemmy will never die, cause he's Rock 'n' Roll himself, and obviously rock 'n' roll will never die.
    When I read the title I was like "WHAT!?" and half a second later "wait a second..."
    Lemmy almost dies, the band faces a terrifying situation.. And after it's all over, they release an album called "Aftershock".. Am I the only one who see's the coincidence here?
    Good stuff Poirot!
    Why thank you! Stating obvious jokes and facts for a laugh, and to point out the irony, is one of my deepest lifelong desires! And with your positive support, I'm sure I'll go a long way! Doucebag..
    look at the pot calling the kettle black.... you sound like a completely unlikeable person. And if you have to tell people youre funny.... guess what that means
