It’s no secret that legendary Motorhead front man Lemmy Kilmister has been dealing with some health issues these days. After being forced to cut their set at this year’s Wacken festival due to Lemmy’s health, it now seems that the stage isn’t the only place he is vacating these days. A West Coast correspondent for Over The Top Metal News reports that Lemmy has decided to take some time off from his regular stint at the Rainbow Bar & Grill’s patio bar video poker machine. Taking his place until he gets better is going to be none other than Poison guitarist CC Deville.
When asked about his new gig CC had this to say:
“When the kind people of the Rainbow Bar & Grill contacted me about filling in for Lemmy at the patio bar video poker machine, I mean, I was speechless. Lemmy is a rock n’ roll icon and he holds the coveted high score on that machine. I will drink Jack and Coke and even snort coke for hours while trying to beat Lemmy’s high score. I’ll be there telling stories of touring with David Lee Roth, selling out arenas, and fucking tons of broads over the years. I will also be more than happy to sign copies of all the Poison CDs except for Native Tongue. Did you hear that album? I still can’t believe they put that guy in there. What a crap disc. Did you hear the Samantha 7 album? Now THAT’S rock n’ roll baby!”
CC proceeded to talk for another 45 minutes but we just decided to give up trying to transcribe what he was saying. DeVille will be at the Rainbow Bar & Grill Patio Bar video poker machine until Lemmy is feeling well enough to return.
