Memorial Service for Lemmy of Motorhead to Be Live-Streamed

The memorial service of late Motorhead frontman Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister will broadcast live on YouTube Saturday from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. PST, the band announced on Facebook Wednesday.

Family and close friends will honor Kilmister’s life at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Hollywood Saturday. The band asks that fans refrain from attending the service due to limited space, but emphasized they want everyone to remember Kilmister and celebrate his memory.

Motorhead announced the live-stream on their Facebook page. “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.”

The post continued, “Whatever your venue, and however you can, let’s be sure to gather globally on Saturday 9th and celebrate the life of our dear friend and irreplaceable icon.”

Motorhead also included information about sending flowers or making a donation in honor of Kilmister through the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.

Kilmister died of cancer on Monday Dec. 28 shortly after turning 70. Since his death, fans have started a change.org petition to make “Lemmium” the new chemical name for one of the four recently discovered heavy metals in the Periodic table of elements. As of Wednesday, the petition had over 60,000 signatures — just 15,000 shy of the goal.
