MOTÖRHEAD frontman Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister recently spoke to Canada's Chart Attack about the group's current tour and his upcoming solo album, among other topics. A couple of excerpts from the interview follow:
On the tour:
"We've changed the set list altogether, more or less. There are a few surprises, including a couple off 'Another Perfect Day'. Three songs off the new album, 'Tragedy', 'Whorehouse Blues' and... I can't fucking remember, 'Killers', right. We were doing 'Life's A Bitch'. For the next album, we’re looking at probably January or February next year. We never discuss what it’s going to be like though. 'Whorehouse Blues' was spur of the moment. It's just like, if it's fun, we do it. If it isn't, we stop (laughs). That's what rock 'n' roll is supposed to be, you know?"
On his upcoming solo album:
"I've got eight songs right now, but they're not all mixed yet, and I've got to find a few more people to play on it. All but one are originals so far. I might do a couple of covers later on. I've already got THE DAMNED's 'Neat Neat Neat'. But it's all different styles, stuff I can't do in MOTÖRHEAD, mostly. There's bits of everything, really. I'm probably going to use Phil [Campbell, guitars] and Mikkey [Dee, drums] on two different tracks, you know, Phil on one and Mikkey on one. It’s probably another year away."
