Ian "Lemmy"Kilmister was a dude that did whatever the hell he wanted always, and with the utmost style. While the legendary Motörhead frontman, who died on 28 December 2015, his funeral, which will take place in Hollywood, will be live streamed on YouTube on Saturday 9 January.
According to a Facebook statement from the band, friends and family are invited to attend a ceremony at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Hollywood, Los Angeles. But the band have asked fans to refrain from visiting – instead they have arranged for YouTube to show the ceremony via a live stream (which can be accessed here). The stream will run from 3pm PST to 4.30pm PST.
Fans in Los Angeles will also be able to commemorate Lemmy at either The Roxy or the Whisky a Go Go, which will be open to fans for a 12-hour long memorial service starting that day at 2pm PT. Originally, the service was set to be held at Lemmy’s favorite bar, the Rainbow, but demand was so high it had to be moved. Instead, the Rainbow will now host a private memorial later that evening.
