Lemmy Kilmister of the legendary heavy metal band Motörhead recently announced that he’s abandoned his beloved whisky in favor of vodka. He’s been suffering lately from gastric distress and dehydration, and gigs have been cancelled as a result.
Instead of instead of his customary Jack Daniels and coke, Lemmy now quaffs vodka and orange juice to help keep his diabetes in check.
Personally, for me that would be too high a price to pay. But that’s just my opinion.
As usual, Lemmy’s quotes on the subject were pretty choice.
“I like orange juice better,” he told The Guardian. “So, Coca-Cola can fuck off.”
He also said, “Apparently I am still indestructible.” To which we all say, Amen!
