Lemmy’s funeral is held in Los Angeles with family and colleagues. The funeral features tributes by such luminaries as Slash, Dave Grohl, and Rob Halford. Fans were asked not to attend; a live stream was put on YouTube. A photograph of Motorhead was on display at the service chapel, together with a bank of speakers, Lemmy’s boots and an urn shaped like the singer’s trademark black brimmed hat. The band’s manager:
We all know he would not have stood for anything formal or sombre.
He wasn’t a religious man and praying for a miracle was something he would have viewed as a delusional act, but he was profoundly spiritual. Travel well, my dear father. You are back out on the road for a longest tour to the great gig in the sky.
Lemmy was somebody I just feel so honored to have been friends with. He lived his life the way he wanted to… his music and personality will last forever.
[He was] my hero… the one true rock ‘n’ roller…[He] set such a great example because he was so kind to everyone.
At the end of the service Lemmy’s bass guitar is plugged in to a stack of amplifiers and the volume turned up, with the congregation applauding as feedback from the speakers fills the chapel.
