Bravo, Valio—the dairy company turned an advertisement into a tribute to the 'Lemm:
Tomorrow is Lemmy's funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Los Angeles. It will stream everywhere on YouTube. Here's a statement issued by Motörhead:
“We want you ALL to be a part of this memorial service,” wrote the band. “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.”
Here in Seattle, one place to watch a live stream of the ceremony on a great big screen is the Den at Chop Suey:
We're opening our doors at 2 pm on Saturday, January 9th. Bartender Joe Grindo will serving whiskey specials, and you can show us your Motörhead tattoo for a $2 shot. The broadcast runs from 3-4:30 pm. Let's celebrate Lemmy's incredible life and contributions to music together.
Here is a picture and interview with bartender Joe Grindo. I expect many, many more Seattle metalheads to come and represent.
