Lemmy’s Funeral To Be Live Streamed

The world of rock ‘n roll is still reeling from the tragic passing of Motörhead‘s Lemmy Kilmister, who passed away on December 28 at age 70.

The band have now revealed the details for Lemmy’s funeral. Motorhead, who have also announced they’ll be officially disbanding without Lemmy at the helm, have said that family and friends of the late rock star will attend the funeral service at the Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Hollywood, California.

Following the actual funeral, a memorial service will also be held on the famous Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. Although the service was initially supposed to take place at Lemmy’s beloved venue Rainbow Bar & Grill, the response from fans was so overwhelming that the service will be taking over the entire Strip.

For those who cannot attend the actual memorial, the band have gone on to announce that they will be live streaming the entire event on their official YouTube page.

Motörhead posted a message to their Facebook, inviting fans to head to a bar, a club or just meet with some mates to pay tribute to the legendary musician. “Wherever you are, PLEASE get together and watch the service with fellow Motörheadbangers and friends,” they wrote in a Facebook post. “Go to your favorite bar, or your favorite club, make sure they have access to an internet connection and toast along with us. Or simply invite your pals around and celebrate Lemmy’s life at home. Whatever your venue, and however you can, let’s be sure to gather globally and celebrate the life of our dear friend and irreplaceable icon.”
