Suicidal Tendencies' Mike Muir: "Lemmy Kilmister shouldn't have been on the road weeks prior to his death"


Suicidal Tendencies' Mike Muir was recently interviewed by Kaaos TV, you can read some excerpts below.

About late Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, Muir said: "Well, we just did… Motorhead did that Motörboat cruise last September/October, and we were just on it, and Lemmy didn't look good.
A lot of people will sit there and say, 'Oh, I love this person.' I wasn't a big metal person, and so I wasn't really familiar… I was like a lot of people, I knew 'Ace Of Spades', but I wasn't really into a lot of those music. I got into music through punk rock, and that motivated me, because there was a couple of punk rock bands I liked and a whole bunch I did not like."

He continued: "When someone dies, you're supposed to say good things, but it was sad on Motörboat, 'cause Lemmy shouldn't have been there. And I think there's people that… There's something to be said going out the way you want, but you know what? He wasn't healthy, hadn't been for a while; they'd been canceling shows. And as a person, that's not how someone that was in family I'd want them to be treated. So… People won't like it, but I shouldn't say anything, but that's what I feel like, you know…"

Muir added: "I appreciate anybody, on the good side, that spent so much of their time and their life to do music and do good things for other people. But I think there's also, as I was saying earlier [in the interview] about Slipknot and their crew and all the other stuff around, I think there's people that around Lemmy that probably should feel pretty bad, 'cause they didn't handle it right."
