Lemmy has complained about his health regime after he was forced to cut down drinking and smoking – and was then even told to get over his craving for blueberries.
The frontman is still recovering from a series of problems that nearly ended his career – and says one of the tests he underwent revealed the fruit was playing havoc with his health.
Lemmy tells Yahoo Music: “I would get these cravings. They found out there’s something in blueberries that isn’t good for me, so I stopped and got better.
“It’s crazy – you can’t drink anything but water and can’t eat anything but fibrous bread. Getting old is a lot of fun.”
Motorhead start work on their 22nd album in January. Lemmy observes: “Our record company is always asking for more stuff. They want to get the most out of me as possible before I die.”
The band return to the UK next month:
Nov 04: Manchester O2 Apollo
Nov 05: Birmingham NIA
Nov 08: London Wembley SSE Arena
