Motorhead mainman Lemmy Kilmister has nearly completed work on his solo record.
And even if his recent health woes mean his days on tour are numbered, he has a stack of studio projects he wants to get done, including with his rockabilly outfit Head Cat.
The band recently rescheduled their winter UK and Europen tour dates for early spring next year when it became clear Kilmister hadn't fully recovered from the illnesses that put him in hospital for three weeks during the summer.
The solo record features two tracks with the Reverend Horton Heat, two with The Damned, a track with Dave Grohl and a track with Joan Jett.
Lemmy’s aiming to record with Skunk Anansie vocalist Skin before the project, which was begun as far back as 2004, is complete.
The 67-year-old confirms he’s given up smoking and now only drinks wine, and he’s bought an exercise bike in a bid to stay keep fit.
