Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister was a unique Rock and Roll figure known for his strong personality and in one of his final interviews back in 2015 he talked with German TV Channel ZDF about death. The musician even joked that he could comeback to haunt musicians.
“What, after death? No! I’ll have to stop then – I think. But you never know, I could haunt somewhere, mess up somebody else’s gig.” The musician also suggested that could be a Tears For Fears concert.
On the same interview he talked about his lifestyle, saying: “I don’t really recommend the lifestyle because most people die of it. A lot of my friends are dead who shouldn’t be. But if it’s the luck of the draw. It’s random. You can’t plan your life. It doesn’t work.”
Many fans said that he also could haunt the Los Angeles famous Rainbow Bar & Grill, where he loved to hang out.
Lemmy Kilmister unfortunately died in 2015 at his home in Los Angeles, California, on December 28, at the age of 70, due to aggressive prostate cancer, cardiac arrhythmia and heart failure. The vocalist had been suffering from diabetes and other health problems for several years.
“Towards the last couple of years, Lem wasn’t quite himself. He just wanted to carry on. You could see Lemmy aging a little bit more, ’cause he was a fair amount older than the rest of us.
“But he was doing fine – he was playing fine. We just carried on. We kind of slowed it down a little bit, but it was still full-on touring compared to what other bands do. Us slowing down was just like full-on touring for many other bands.
