NEWS: Lemmy's funeral to be webcast

THE funeral and memorial service for Lemmy is to be webcast worldwide live on Motorhead's Youtube channel on Saturday from 11pm to 12:30pm.

In a statement issued by the remainder of the band they are encouraging fans to watch and raise a toast to Lemmy.

Wherever you are, please get together and watch the service with fellow Motorheadbangers and friends. Go to your favourite bar or club, make sure they have access to an internet connection, and toast along with us," the statement reads

“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, January 9, and celebrate the life of our dear friend and irreplaceable icon.”

If fans want to send flowers they have been asked to contact Karen Brando at Flowers By Michael.  Alternatively they can make a charitable donation to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund in Lemmy’s name.

Meanwhile, the campaign to get 'Ace of Spades' to Number One in the UK charts is making progress, with the song already hitting the Top 10. Those behind the campaign said today: “Please don't just like the page – we're all here to do a job. Buy a download or two. It’s only a quid.”

They have posted a list of legitimate sites where you can download the song. You can read my obituary of the great man here.
