MOTÖRHEAD's LEMMY Talks About Legalizing Heroin, Internet Rumors And Using Viagra

J. Bennett of Decibel magazine (web site) recently conducted an interview with MOTÖRHEAD mainman Lemmy Kilmister. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow:

Decibel: In November, you spoke before the Welsh Assembly about legalizing heroin. How did that happen?

Lemmy: "I don't know — some dummy conservative trying to get the youth on his side, you know? [Laughs] Like he gives a fuck. I just spoke about what I thought they should know about the heroin problem. I figure they've been throwing police at it, right, for the last 30 years, and it's worse than ever. So that hasn't worked, has it? The only thing they haven't tried is legalizing it and controlling it. Which, I mean, I hate the idea, but it's the only one I can think of. I've never done anything like that before, but it's just like any other audience, I suppose. And quite a few of the English papers reported it very favorably."

Decibel: Speaking of papers, you also recently called up a journalist who wrote a story claiming you were bisexual.

Lemmy: "[Laughs] I called him up, alright, yeah."

Decibel: You threatened to put a screwdriver through his kneecaps.

Lemmy: "I didn't threaten him. I just said it would be difficult for him to kneel down and get his floppy disk with a screwdriver through both knees. He said, yeah, he could really see that problem, and he hoped it wouldn't arise. [Laughs] The next day there was an apology on the Internet. I'll tell you what, though, man — if it was somebody who couldn't have fought back, that bastard could've ruined somebody's life forever. They could've lost their job, their wife — the whole fuckin' movie, you know? Seeing as how I've got no family ax to grind — I'm not married or nothing — it didn't hurt me, but he could've fucked somebody's life completely just for being a smart cunt on the Internet. I should've done his knees anyway — even after the apology."

Decibel: Do you use Viagra?

Lemmy: "Of course I do — I'm 60, man. What the fuck's up with you?"

Decibel: I'm not 60.

Lemmy: "Well, you wait. You've got a whole lot of pleasure to come yet."

Decibel: Has it ever lasted too long? There's always stories going around about dudes taking handfuls of Viagra and ending up in the emergency room with ten-hour erections.

Lemmy: "What's the problem? There is no 'lasts too long.' [Laughs] I can stand it if they can."

Decibel: Do you still have three girlfriends?

Lemmy: "No, it's down to two now. One of them moved in with someone else. If you don't commit, they get pissed off, you see. But I don't wanna be committed. I'm not crazy enough yet."
