Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister was the lead singer of legendary heavy metal band Motörhead. He passed away last month at 70 years old, but fans have another chance to celebrate his life with his memorial service at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Hollywood — streaming live online.
The stream is set to begin at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, with the service happening from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Watch the service here:
Fans have been asked not to show up at the cemetery due to limited space, but they are being asked to remember Lemmy together.
One place paying tribute: the Rainbow Bar and Grill on the Sunset Strip, where Lemmy was a fixture. They planned a 12-hour celebration, from 2 p.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. that night. They plan to stream the service on behalf of the band before closing their doors from 5 to 9 for a private service, at which point fans are told to go to the Roxy next door. There's also a Motörhead tribute show being held at the nearby Whisky A Go Go, with doors opening at 6 p.m.
"So wherever you are, PLEASE get together and watch the service with fellow Motörheadbangers and friends. 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 Lemm’s life at home," a statement on the band's website said.
One tribute that fans are trying to put together: A statue of Lemmy at the Rainbow. They've raised $3,000 so far of the $30,000 they're seeking to build the statue; the Rainbow is encouraging the statue themselves, linking to the effort on their Facebook statue.
The band also asked fans to leave tributes to Lemmy on a Facebook page.
Fans who wanted to make a charitable donation under Lemmy's name were encouraged on the band's website to give to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.
