Motorhead has announced that the funeral of Lemmy Kilmister, scheduled for Saturday at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood, will be streamed over the internet.
The details were revealed on the group’s Facebook page:
SATURDAY JANUARY 9th THE WORLD CELEBRATES LEMMY
On SATURDAY JANUARY 9th, the world will come together and celebrate the life of our friend, and legend, Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister.
Family and close friends will observe a service at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery, Hollywood, commencing at 3pm PST and ending at 4.30pm. With such limited space available on-site, we respectfully ask that you don’t attend the cemetery… but we want you ALL to be a part of this, so we are setting up a live feed of the service via the internet on Motörhead’s official You Tube channel:
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.
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.
NOTE: For anyone wishing to send flowers, please contact Karen Brando at
If you’d like to make a charitable donation under Lemmy’s name, please go to:

A 12-hour memorial is also being held the same day on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Originally just planned for the Rainbow Bar and Grill, it will now include most clubs on the famous section of road.
