LEMMY: 'Nothing Kills A Relationship Like Commitment'
In a recent interview with SPIN.com, MOTÖRHEAD mainman Lemmy Kilmister spoke about what it's like still being a bachelor at the age of 66. "I don't miss anything by being a bachelor," he said. "I don't know any happily married couples, not even my parents."
He continued, "There was a magazine in England who said I screwed 2,000 women and I didn't, I said 1,000. When you think about it, it isn't that unreasonable. I'm not even married, and I've been doing this since I was 16. And I'm now 66, so that's like 50 years. I could've done more if I've tried, I guess. I didn't even fool myself with that.
"My father was a stranger to me, and I learned that my stepfather was fighting a losing battle with my mother. Almost everyone is unhappy with themselves when they realize what they've done. And the lot of them get married because of the kids and that's a really bad idea. People just rip each other to shreds over the years.
"Nothing kills a relationship like commitment."
Lemmy has a son named Paul Inder who plays guitar and reportedly has his own band.
