Lemmy’s funeral will be streamed live on YouTube this weekend, the Motörhead frontman’s family has announced.
Ian Kilmister passed away from cancer at the age of 70 just after Christmas. He will be remembered in a service at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Hollywood, Los Angeles, this Saturday (9th January).
Rather than visit the cemetery, the family have invited fans to watch online instead, with the service available to stream live on YouTube.
The unprecedented arrangement will allow people in the UK to tune in and watch the funeral from 11pm GMT on Saturday to 12.30am GMT.
“We want you ALL to be a part of this memorial service,” wrote the family on YouTube.
“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.”
Donations are being accepted under Lemmy’s name by the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund at www.diocancerfund.org.
