Motorhead star Lemmy has no regrets about missing out on his son's early years - because the kid wasn't "real" until he turned six.
The rocker has been absent for much of his now-40-year-old son Paul's life, but admits his offspring is "all right" and doesn't think Lemmy's a bad dad.
And the unsentimental Ace of Spades hitmaker has no qualms about not meeting his son for the first six years of his life.
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "They're not real people before that (six), anyway. I mean, you can form a weird bond with them, but they're babies.
"They all look the same. You could swap them in the night, and no one would know."
