Motorhead recently canceled live shows due to Lemmy Kilmister experiencing a health issue.

According to Lemmy's official Facebook profile, the iconic front man is fine and tour dates will resume later this summer, with the following message being posted online:

"We are happy to announce that despite rumors to the contrary, Lemmy is alive, breathing, talking, fucking, drinking, eating, reading and will be back to playing shows shortly.

"As reported, he did undergo a Motor-pit-stop for some medical maintenance this past spring, and the timing of his recent illness was unfortunate in that it came so soon after that.

"Lemmy & Co believe in the 'keep calm and carry on' way of thinking. Fans can anticipate more Motörhead live action this summer, as well as the most exciting Motörhead in years, Aftershock, this Fall."

If Lemmy takes it easy and goes from a bottle of JD a day to a half bottle and from 2 packs of Reds to one, nah, he should be just fine again.

Was it a hematoma, or just a new mole?
