Last week it was reported that Motorhead bassist Lemmy Kilmister had been fitted with a defibrillator for undisclosed heart trouble, now Lemmy has suffered a hematoma that has forced the band to cancel  two European tour dates.

Motorhead had to cancel last Saturday's Austria's See-Rock Festival and Tuesday's (6/25) in Milan, Italy.

This bad news follows the band accepting Metal Hammers "Golden Gods" Award on June 18th.

The release of the Motorhead's new record After Shock is still scheduled for a September release date.

After forty years of true rock n' roll decadence, here's to a speedy recovery.
