As the music world prepares to say a final farewell to Motorhead’s Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister, the band are allowing fans the chance to say their own goodbye to the music legend by live-streaming the funeral service live on their official YouTube page.
The description for the live-stream reads:
“We want you ALL to be a part of this memorial service.
So wherever you are, PLEASE get together and watch 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.
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.”
The send-off, a family and friends affair taking place in Hollywood, will give everyone one final chance to express their condolences and to share their memories of one of the most iconic front-men ever known.
The service is also being screened in some of Lemmy’s favourite bars on the Sunset Strip, including The Rainbow. In London, fans have gathered at The Wig and Gown in Holloway to watch the live stream, with Motorhead music being the only stuff played all night in tribute.
The service is due to begin shortly and can be viewed below.
