MOTÖRHEAD's LEMMY On Relationships: 'I Like To Be Surprised'

December 29, 2002

A lifelong bachelor, MOTÖRHEAD legend Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister revealed during a recent interview with Britain's Observer that he has been involved in a serious relationship with a Los Angeles-based woman for the past several years. However, don't expect the singer to tie the knot anytime soon.

"I've been going out with this one girl for six years," Lemmy said. "Am I in love? I'm in serious like, you know what I mean? I don't know if love exists, not the kind that keeps. I think love's an infatuation that turns into a habit, because you can't keep that passion going. You get used to people, and that's death for me — I like to be surprised. Like that song of mine, 'The Chase is Better Than the Catch', right? Always.

"If you take a girl to a party at least five other women — absolutely wonderful - will be looking at you across the room and brushing by you. Go on your own, there's 26 geezers, three ugly birds and no booze."
