Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister: Grammy Nomination Nice ‘Middle Finger’ to Doubters
He tells 'One on One With Mitch Lafon' that he views the nomination as validation for those who felt he would fade with age and health woes. "It's always nice to stick your middle finger up and say, 'Ha, ha you bastards, six months to live eh?" He adds, "I don't see why you should stop when it gives you so much pleasure."
Motorhead released their 'Aftershock' album in late 2013, but touring promotion of the disc was delayed a bit while Lemmy dealt with a number of health issues. After recovering, the iconic rocker returned to the stage in 2014 for more extensive promotion of the album and he has no intent on slowing down. The band is already in the midst of working on their next album.
This year Motorhead are up for Best Metal Performance for 'Heartbreaker' off the 'Aftershock' disc. They'll square off against Anthrax, Mastodon, Slipknot and Tenacious D for the honor this year. Motorhead already claims one Grammy statue to their credit, taking home a statue at the 2005 ceremony for their cover of Metallica's 'Whiplash.' The 57th Annual Grammy Awards will take place Sunday, Feb. 8 at 8PM ET/PT on CBS.
