In a new interview with Revolver magazine, Lemmy has revealed that his solo album is nearly finished.

Speaking in the Dec 13/Jan 14 issue, he said "After I get get better we're going to try to tour again. If I can't do that full-on, I want to do another album with Head Cat. And, of course, I want to do a couple more Motorhead records. "But the next thing I’ve got coming out is my solo album, which is almost done. I still want to do a track with [Skunk Anasie vocalist] Skin before I put it out.. There are two tracks with the Reverend Horton Heat, two with The Damned, a track with Dave Grohl and a track with Joan Jett."
The incident which led to the shortened festival date was also discussed, with Lemmy commenting:
"It was strange. The Wacken date was going really good and it sounded really good, too. And then I got this pain in my back that came out of nowhere and it was crippling. When you get to this age, stuff starts going on, y'know? There's nothing you can do about it. At this stage, things would be going wrong anyway, even without my history."
It appears that retirement is still nowhere in sight for the iconic bassist and vocalist. Rumours that the Jack and Cokes have been knocked on the head and replaced by wine are currently unconfirmed...
