Lemmy From Motorhead Calls Mitt Romney a ‘Monster’
As the election approaches, more and more classic rockers are endorsing presidential candidates. Lemmy Kilmister didn't say he's voting for Barack Obama in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, but the Motorhead singer did beg readers not to vote for Mitt Romney before calling the former Massachusetts Governor a "f---ing monster."
"Please, please don't vote for Mitt Romney. F--k him," Lemmy says. "Repeal abortion law is the first thing he'll do. F---ing monster."
The conversation steered toward politics before the Chuck Berry all-star tribute show last week. Rolling Stone writer Patrick Doyle mentions how important seeing an African-American president was to Berry, and Lemmy picks it up from there.
"I would have said America wasn't ready for it. And I don't think they were, because they're trying to drag him down now. I mean, the poor f---er's only just gotten rid of all that George Bush s--t that he left, or is trying to. And he's being stonewalled by the f---ing Congress all the time. I don't know how he's gotten anything done."
Motorhead's founding member is a big fan of Berry's, for reasons musical and non. "He was always sort of a Lothario, you know. He always had that innuendo in the vocals too when he's talking about chicks. He was always a horndog, basically, and so was I."
Fan excited about the band's new music reported to be released in 2013 will be excited to hear they're returning to the studio this winter. It's there they'll write new songs to finish the new project.
