Motörhead Resume Touring With Guitarist Phil Campbell After Bout With Illness


After recently being hospitalized for an undisclosed ailment while on tour overseas that forced the cancellation of a handful of shows, Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell returned to the stage last night in Gothenburg, Sweden. The internet being the internet, amid Campbell‘s time away a false rumor of his death circulated. The group commented on both Campbell‘s return and said rumor below:

“Gothenburg rocked it, Motörhead rocked it, Philip Anthony Campbell double rocked it and the tour is alive and kicking teeth and ears in again! Photos to follow soon…
For ALL members of the media who engage in the modern-age bloodsport of celebrity death-watch-by-internet-rumour-spreading, we hope you feel the shame and shoddiness of your “work”.”

And just for the record, no, I did not report on said rumor.
