The video of the funeral service for late Motorhead frontman Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister, held Saturday January 9, can be seen online.
Saturday’s two-hour service in Hollywood, Los Angeles, was streamed live and can now be seen above.
Rock and metal stars including bandmate Mikkey Dee, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Metallica duo Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo and Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, spoke at the Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery service in honor of Lemmy. Other speakers included Anthrax’s Scott Ian, Alice In Chains bassist Mike Inez, Lemmy’s son Paul Inder and his manager Todd Singerman.
An emotional Mikkey Dee said: “I miss you already, Lemmy. I miss our arguments and our hard work in the studio and on the road. It was so much fun, and I will miss it forever. Try to take it a little easier on the other side. Rest in peace. See you soon.”
The GNR man said: “Lemmy was somebody that I feel blessed to be friends with. He was such a great example of what my peers wanted to be. More integrity than anybody, 100% loyal. All these fine attributes.”
The service ended with a bass guitar being laid against an amplifier and left to feedback – the same way Lemmy ended Motörhead live shows.
Kilmister died on December 28th at age 70.
