Motorhead rocker Lemmy has vowed never to marry and have children - because he has a better life unattached.

The 59-year-old claims to have slept with more than 2,000 women in his life and insists he's had a close enough glimpse of married life to realise it's not for him.

Lemmy says, "I've never met a girl who could stop me looking at all the others. If I did I'd marry her. I'm not going to get married and play around. That's bulls**t."

Neither does Lemmy - who has two grown up children - yearn for family life.

He adds, "I went out with a couple of girls with young babies. I can give a baby a bottle with one hand and roll a joint with the other, but I never wanted that.

"Changing nappies is horrible. Kids are generally rotten until the age of about six, when they become people."
