I’m a little behind the times as I only just found out that Lemmy had a defibrillator fitted in his chest recently. For those who don’t know, this little bit of kit helps “convince” an erratic heartbeat to act a little more regularly.
However, yesterday the band announced the cancellation of two dates owing to Lemmy’s ill health, specifically an “unspecified haematoma” (or blood clot).
The dates cancelled were June 22 in Austria and tonight’s show in Milan.
The man is a legend, but I’m much rather he was – specifically – a living one. Get well soon, you mad, mad bastard.
