Lemmy claims to have discovered the secret to longevity, and it doesn't come in pill form.

Motörhead frontman and bad ass du jour, Ian Kilmister (better known as Lemmy), has always thought of himself as indestructible. The rough n' tough metal god lives hard and fast, and has done so for the majority of his storied career. But now that his age is finally catching up to him, he has decided that some changes are in order.

After being forced to cancel a handful of shows earlier this year due to health reasons, Lemmy now uses a cane because, as he put it, "my legs are fucked up." He also suffers from diabetes, but he's not letting that pesky little disease slow him down.

In an attempt to get his health problems under control, Lemmy sought the advice of...absolutely no one, as far as we can tell, based on his new diet of vodka and orange juice. While his signature drink used to be whiskey and coke, he is now convinced that switching to clear liquor and a sugary juice will do the trick. He recently told the Guardian:

“I like orange juice better. So, Coca-Cola can fuck off."

There you have it ladies and gentlemen. Sound medical advice from heavy metal's own version of a cockroach; unable to be destroyed under any circumstances, up to and including a nuclear blast. He has also cut his cigarette habit down to one pack a week, and remains confident that these drastic life changes will allow him to live forever:

“Apparently I am still indestructible. As long as I can walk the few yards from the back to the front of the stage without a stick. Or even if I do have to use a stick.”

And that, boys and girls, is how you do metal.
