LEMMY AT FIFTY

AGING GRACELESSLY WITH LEMMY KILMISTER, THE MAN BEHIND MOTORHEAD.

Has Lemmy made any concessions to age? Only one, he says. "I do exactly what I always did--except for the LSD," he concedes. "I gave that up in 1975.

"Still, I can't believe I'm foooking fifty. I never even considered that I'd make it this far. I mean, when you're 25, everyone who's 35 is your enemy. Then you get to 35 and"--he cackles--"you have to make some quick decisions."

Leaving music behind isn't one of them: Although his head is still ringing from the previous night's indulgences, Lemmy insists that he has no interest in retirement.

"How could I stop when I've got people in audiences coming up to me and saying things like, `Lemmy, can I shake your hand? You changed my life'?" he recounts. "So foook it. No one can fight us. We are Motorhead, and we don't care."

Motorhead, with Belladonna and Speedball. 8 p.m. Wednesday, February 7, Ogden Theatre, 935 East Colfax, $16.50, 830-2525.
