Slowing Down But Still Going!

Found this artical this morning.
Hell of a icon and still going!

M

MOTÖRHEAD was forced to postpone its previously announced fall 2013 European tour until early next year. Lemmy explained in a statement: "We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don't worry — I'm not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever.
"It disappointed me tremendously to have to say I wasn't quite ready to hit the road yet, but not nearly as much as it would've disappointed me to go out, play some average shows and watch my health give way long before the tour was over! When people come to see a MOTÖRHEAD tour, they expect a MOTÖRHEAD show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble."
Lemmy recently spoke to U.K.'s Classic Rock magazine about his health issues that have caused the band to cancel a number of European festival appearances this past summer — including shows in France, Germany and Russia. The dates were called off when doctors discovered an unspecified haematoma, a pool of leaked blood gathered in Lemmy's muscles. The legendary rocker is also suffering from Type 2 diabetes, diagnosed more than a decade ago, and has had a defibrillator fitted earlier this year to iron out the uneven bumps in his heart.
Lemmy takes two pills every day for his diabetes, which has affected the circulation in his legs. As a result, his legs stiffen and ache if he walks too far and his back hurts if he stands for too long. "But I can still stand at that mic every night and play my songs," he said. "I wouldn't know about the defibrillator if it wasn't for that fucking lump in my chest," he said. "I'm getting better."
Lemmy, who turns 68 years old in December, told Classic Rock he didn't expect to still be here at 30,
"I don't do regrets," he said. "Regrets are pointless. It's too late for regrets. You've already
done it, haven't you? You've lived your life. No point wishing you could change it.
"There are a couple of things I might have done differently, but nothing major; nothing that would have made that much of a difference.
"I'm pretty happy with the way things have turned out. I like to think I've brought a lot
of joy to a lor of people all over the world. I'm true to myself and I'm straight with people."
Asked if his illness this year has made him more aware of his own mortality, Lemmy said: "Death is an inevitability, isn't it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don't worry about it. I'm ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn't complain. It's been good."

Old School New Music Tuesday!!

It seems like everyone kicking new stuff out today is a throwback to the 80's and before!!

**Of course there's MOTORHEAD'S new disc "Aftershock" out today. As mentioned before, LEMMY says he's good and over being sick. Hopefully we'll see a tour!! 

**That sexy old school vixen known as LITA FORD is back today with an album that personifies her return, "The Bitch is Back...Live"! From THE RUNAWAYS to her solo career she's certainly a princess of rock-n-roll!! The disc was recorded at the Canyon Club in Agoura, CA!

**Kicking out their 10th studio album is METAL CHURCH with "Generation Nothing". 

**The Product Description says it all for "Live at the Greek" - "In the Summer and Fall of 1999, one of the best live rock 'n' roll bands and rock's greatest guitarist united for a tour across the States, performing the best songs from the band that virtually invented Rock! Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page joined Chris and Rich Robinson and the rest of The Black Crowes to perform ''Whole Lotta Love,'' ''Heartbreaker,'' ''What Is and What Should Never Be,' ''Hey Hey What Can I Do'' and many more Zep favorites. The band also ripped into blues classics like ''Mellow Down Easy,'' ''Woke Up This Morning,'' the Yardbirds' classic ''Shapes of Things'' and the early Fleetwood Mac number ''Oh Well.'' Now, over a decade later from the original release, this classic collaboration is available for the first time on vinyl. Spanning three discs on white vinyl, ''Live at the Greek'' is a sterling recording of a legendary concert on the nights of October 18 and 19, 1999. This classic live collaboration is available for the first time on a Triple LP set pressed on white vinyl." Yeah... that sounds absolutely sick!! 

**And how about this?! "Thriller: A Metal Tribute to Michael Jackson". With appearences by CHUCK BILLY, CHRIS JERICHO of Fozzy, COREY GLOVER of Living Colour, LAJON WITHERSPOON of SEVENDUST, BUMBLEFOOT & more! 

Here's what I've got coming up, as always, what am I missing?

Manson Branching Out!

Can't Say I did not see this coming and I kind of like the idea of these guys expanding into more mainstream media.
Some may call it a sell-out but I think it is just good business!

Check it out!

M

Marilyn Manson is joining the cast of the hit ABC TV series "Once Upon A Time"Manson will provide the voice for The Shadow, a being which was first seen at the end of the show's second season and has already appeared in the recently started third year. Manson will make his debut on the season's eighth episode, scheduled to air in mid-November.

Show creators and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz said in a statement, "We've always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson. We wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl."
The show takes place in the fictional town of Storybrooke, Maine, in which its residents are actually characters from various fairy tales that were transported to the "real world" town and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse.
The Shadow is a mysterious being that kidnaps young children from their beds to take them back to the fantasy realm of Neverland and steal their souls.
The main storyline of the third season involves the cast traveling to Neverland to search for the character of Henry Mills, who has been snatched by an evil version of Peter Pan.
Manson has appeared in a handful of movies and TV shows before, most recently on the Showtime series "Californication" — where he played himself — and the Sundance Channel program "Wrong Cops".
He has spent most of the past year touring behind his 2012 album, "Born Villain".
