LEMMY BLASTS RETIREMENT SUGGESTIONS
Veteran MOTORHEAD rocker LEMMY has slammed suggestions he should retire to make way for younger bands, because he’s adamant his group is still at the top of its game.
The 61-year-old sees no reason for Motorhead to quit, especially as the heavy rockers have always remained true to their roots.
In an interview with website Snuff.co.nz, Lemmy says, "Somebody said to me recently that I should retire and make room for some young ones and I said: ‘F**k you! I haven’t seen anyone better than me, so why should I jack it in?’ "People think rock ‘n’ roll is all about teenage rebellion, but why can’t there be old rebels as well? "If people find the sight of an older guy playing rock ‘n’ roll distressing to their eyes, they can just not watch
. Some people get better as they get older, if they really care about what they’re doing, which I do.
"Certainly, I’ve never done this for the money, because we’ve never sold many records
. A lot of crap bands are millionaires, but not us."
