MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister performed the official coin toss at LA KISS' first-ever home game yesterday (Saturday, April 5) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Check out video footage of his appearance below.STEEL PANTHER, widely considered one of the hottest heavy-metal bands out of Hollywood since MÖTLEY CRÜE, GUNS N' ROSES and POISON ruled the Sunset Strip, put on a special halftime performance in front of 12,045 fans at last night's event. "We wanted a football team, but this is a different type of football," 47-year-old KISS fan John Richards told the Los Angeles Times at last night's game. "This is KISS football." He added: "I think 95% are KISS fans and 5% know something about arena football. If it would have been L.A. anything else, I wouldn't have been here. I wouldn't have known anything was going on." MOTÖRHEAD canceled a handful of shows on its European festival tour in August 2013 after Lemmy suffered a haematoma (where blood collects outside of a blood vessel). The news of Lemmy's latest medical issue followed reports that he was also fitted with a defibrillator because of heart problems. The band also postponed a European headlining tour which was scheduled to kick off in November.
