MOTÖRHEAD Mainman Hopes To Die On Stage 'Like TOMMY COOPER'

James McCarthy of Wales On Sunday reports that MOTÖRHEAD legend Lemmy Kilmister has professed he hopes to die onstage like Welsh prop comedian and magician Welsh prop comedian and magician Tommy Cooper.

But the 62-year-old Anglesey-born rocker, whose songs include "Killed By Death", is sure however he goes, he's going to hell.

The one-time Jimi Hendrix roadie said: "Hopefully I'll die onstage like Tommy Cooper. I always thought he went out really well — to the sound of laughter. I want people clapping and laughing and shouting hooray.

"It would be awful to go off down the tunnel with 'boo' ringing in your ears. I am going to hell though. That is where all the pool tables are."

The singer also revealed he is a big fan of THE BEATLES, ZZ TOP and '90s funk metallers LIVING COLOUR.

He hopes to one day make a record as good as "Tres Hombres" or "Tejas" by ZZ TOP. He said: "I haven't come close yet, but we're working on it."
