Lemmy Said Soon Before His Death That He Would Haunt Tears For Fears

Rock legend Lemmy could show up in spirit at a gig in 2016 if his eerie warning in a final interview is realised.

The Motorhead frontman lost a brief battle with cancer on Monday (28Dec15) – four days after turning 70 years old. One of his last interviews with a German TV network has surfaced and the information he shared during the discussion is more than a little jarring for people who believe in the paranormal.

The Ace of Spades singer acknowledged he had lived a busy, lucky life, and insisted only death would prevent him from hitting the stage.

“I’ll have to stop then, I think,” he joked, before adding, “But you never know, I could haunt somewhere, mess up somebody else’s gig.”

He then singled out 80s act Tears For Fears as the band he’d most like to haunt onstage after death.

Many fans will be flocking to Los Angeles’ Rainbow bar in January (16) to toast Lemmy in his favourite Hollywood hang-out. Locals expect to see the rocker’s ghost there.

Lemmy concluded the German interview by urging young rockers not to follow his lifestyle example, adding, “I don’t really recommend the lifestyle because most people die of it. A lot of my friends are dead who shouldn’t be.”
