Motörhead frontman Lemmy brands terrorists behind Paris attacks 'assholes and cowards'

Motörhead frontman Lemmy has spoken out about the recent attacks in Paris dubbing the perpetrators "assholes and cowards".

The frontman said he would have played at the Bataclan concert hall the day after 89 people were killed during an Eagles Of Death Metal gig in the French capital as a show of defiance.

The singer told ZDF Aspekte:"We were looking at the TV as it happened and they were filming it. You could still hear gunshots. It's so dumb. Those people are so dumb. What for? Do you think it's gonna be a heroic thing to kill innocent people? Assholes. Cowards.

"I would have gone on the day after. If they (the terrorists) stop you, then they win. And they're not going to beat me. I mean, I do what I'm supposed to do. If the police cancel the show for us, I can't do anything about that. But we didn't cancel it."

Survivor's Frankie Sullivan sues Huckabee for using "Eye of the Tiger" at Kim Davis rally

Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is facing a lawsuit stemming from a September rally where the former Arkansas governor used Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" without permission. Survivor's Frankie Sullivan, who co-wrote the 1982 single, is suing Huckabee for unspecified damages after the candidate used the Rocky III theme at the high-profile rally for Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, The Associated Press reports.

Sullivan, through his company Rude Music, filed the lawsuit at a Chicago federal court Wednesday, three months after Huckabee played the song to celebrate Davis' release from prison, according to the Associated Press. In the suit, Sullivan claims that, as co-writer of the track, he holds the copyright on "Eye of the Tiger," and Huckabee did not seek permission to use the song at the rally. The lawsuit also demanded that Huckabee refrain from using the single at future rallies.

Speaking to Rolling Stone days after Huckabee used "Eye of the Tiger," Sullivan admitted he was upset by the situation, especially since he's been down this road with politicians before. In 2012, Sullivan sued Newt Gingrich after the then-Republican presidential candidate played "Eye of the Tiger" at his rallies. "I do not like mixing rock and roll with politics; they do not go hand in hand," Sullivan said. "What upset me most [about Huckabee's use] was that, once again, my song was being used to further a political agenda – and no one even bothered to ask for permission."

At the time, Sullivan said he was undecided about whether he wanted to pursue further legal action against Huckabee. However, the guitarist did admit that, unlike Davis, he supports gay marriage. "I do not agree with Kim Davis' stance and do not believe in denying gay rights and the freedom for all individuals to choose the lifestyle they want to live," Sullivan says. "Our Constitution, and the words of our Founding Fathers, stand tall for freedom, which is what America is all about. I find it ridiculous in this day and age that this fight against gay marriage has gone on, even after the Supreme Court's ruling. Let's stop!"

MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) A restaurant that opened its doors in Mobile three years ago has abruptly closed.

Employees tell Local 15 News everything seemed normal Sunday night at work, but Monday morning they got an email from corporate saying that effective immediately, Cheddar's is ceasing its operations at the Mobile location.

Tina Austin was one of many hungry lunch goers on Monday shocked to be greeted with locked doors and a sign that read "Cheddar's doors are closing, but we appreciate your support through the years."
