It's been 34 years since Motorhead was born, and in that time Lemmy Kilmister and company have been on a lot of tours. This tour coming up is no different from most - beginning in just a few days and snaking around the U.S. and Canada through October, then picking up again over in Europe until practically the end of 2009 - and with few days off in between.

""Yeah, well, days off cripple you on tour," says 63-year old, Motorhead front man Lemmy Kilmister in the frank manner in which he says most things, "But it's what I do. It's what I'm supposed to do, I feel."

Each and every musical road warrior has to somewhat adjust to the wear and tear that touring does to you physically - and that too is something that the iconic Kilmister takes in stride. Not only is he used to it after so many years, but he really couldn't imagine it any other way.

"Everything seems ok so far. I've got type 2 diabetes but I've had it for years, you know? It's not going to change anything about my lifestyle; I just take the pills and hope for the best. You can't stop everything you do, you know, because that's just a different life then and I'm not interested in that.
