MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy was interviewed this past week by “ZDF Aspekte” (Aspects), a popular German cultural show for the younger generation. You can now watch the chat at A few excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).

On the Paris terrorist attacks of November 13:

Lemmy: “We were looking at the TV as it happened and they were filming it. You could still hear gunshots. It’s so dumb. Those people are so dumb. What for? Do you think it’s gonna be a heroic thing to kill innocent people? Assholes. Cowards.”

On whether the thought crossed his mind that this could have happened at a MOTÖRHEAD show:

Lemmy: “Yeah, sure, of course. I mean, we played the Bataclan many times — about ten times. It was a regular show for us in Paris. But, thankfully, [nothing happened to us] that night.”

On whether it was clear to him that MOTÖRHEAD wouldn’t be able to play in France immediately after the Paris terrorist attacks, like the band was scheduled to:

Lemmy: “Well, I didn’t think they’d let us play. I mean, it was the day after.”

On whether the terrorist attack at the EAGLES OF DEATH METAL concert changed anything for him in terms of the way he approaches performing:

Lemmy: “No. I would have gone on the day after. If they [the terrorists] stop you, then they win. And they’re not gonna beat me. I mean, I do what I’m supposed to do. If the police cancel [the show for us], I can’t do [anything] about that. But we didn’t cancel it.”

On whether he thinks people are more vulnerable now because of what happened in Paris:

Lemmy: “We’ve always been vulnerable. Every day you go out the house, you’re vulnerable. You’re inches from diving under a bus or somebody hitting you over the head for your money. Nothing is safe. Everybody seems to be obsessed with safety. Well, nothing is safe, okay? Nothing! Make the most of it while you’re safe now. You won’t be tomorrow, maybe.”

On how the Paris attacks caused the French president to declare his nation at war with Islamic State extremists:

Lemmy: “Well, you’ve gotta see his point. I mean, he just had Pearl Harbor in his capital city. I mean, they declared war on him, not him on them.”

On whether he would characterize the current situation as “war”:

Lemmy: “Well, it’s difficult to think of another description. A bunch of guys running around in the capital city with automatic weapons. They killed 137 people. What do you call it?”

On the recent passing of former MOTÖRHEAD drummer Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor, who died on November 11 at the age of 61:

Lemmy: “Yeah, he’s the second [ex-MOTÖRHEAD member to die]. First Würzel [ex-MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Michael Burston] and now Phil. I’ve known Phil, it feels like, all my life. He was a real character, he was a real nutcase, and I do admire that in a person. But I think he lost his will to live, ’cause he was doing a lot of the wrong drugs and living with the wrong people, and it finally caught up.”

On whether he would say he (Lemmy) always used the “right” drugs:

Lemmy: “No. But it was too much for his constitution. So far I’ve survived it.”

On whether he is sometimes surprised that he is still able to perform considering the amount of drugs and alcohol he consumed in his life:

Lemmy: “No, I’m just lucky. I don’t really recommend the lifestyle, ’cause most people die of it. I mean, a lot of my friends are dead who shouldn’t be, who had a lot more music in them. But that’s the way life is: the luck of the draw. You can’t plan your life; it doesn’t work. If you’re confronted by a situation that you didn’t plan for, and then you’re lost… baffled. So you might as well be ready for everything. And to do that, you have to take all the drugs you possibly can.” 8XBET KUBET 188BET kubet kubet88 kubet77 kubet11 kubet casino tải kubet kubet đăng nhập đăng nhập kubet kubet mobile kubet79 kubet86 kubet win kubet kim kubet888 đăng ký kubet dang nhap kubet link kubet kubet 11 thabet và kubet dang ky kubet kubet 77 kubet 88 game kubet trang chủ kubet link vào kubet kubet thien ha kubet ku casino kubet online kubet 86 kubet99 tại kubet kubet3 kubet789 kubet 69 kubet thiên hạ tải kubet ios kubet 868 kubet 89 kubet79 me kubet ac kubet 79 kubet official kubet365 kubet link kubet 24h kubet 777 kubet 18 kubet 711 kubet lừa đảo kubet bet thienhabet kubet kubet 365 kubet999 kubet88 đăng nhập casino kubet trang kubet kubet 888 kubet 111 tải kubet casino kubet7 download kubet kubet vip kubet tải kubet casino nét kubet bị bắt kubet dang nhap kubet tha tha kubet kubet download kubet apk tải game kubet link đăng nhập kubet nha cai kubet ku casino kubet kubet nét tải kubet vip kubet khuyến mãi vao kubet kubet88 casino kubet88 win tại kubet 88 hỗ trợ kubet kubet viêt kubet pro link đăng ký kubet kubet online nét đại lý kubet bị bắt kubet android chơi kubet link tải kubet kubet7777 vào kubet thien ha kubet kubet24 kubet 68 kubet dv vnkubet kubet cho iphone ku777 kubet
