Motörhead legend Lemmy Kilmister is having his funeral today after he passed away on December 28th just days after turning 70 — and it’s a private event with a public live stream. The Youtube link below will be carrying the festivities beginning at 5:30 EST (2:30 CST) from the Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Los Angeles.
We were going to suggest that this would also be a good time to hit the Sunset Strip’s Rainbow Bar & Grill, since we didn’t think that place would be very crowded today. Instead, though, the Rainbow is just one of many bars all over the world that will be screening the funeral. Damn, now we wish that we were drinking in England.
Anyway, the clock’s ticking down and we’ll start drinking now. And don’t worry if you’re just now reading this and missed out on the action. We’re pretty sure this link will become the permanent home for video of Lemmy’s final bow. If not, you’ll probably find it somewhere else at the Motörhead Official channel.
We also suspect that there’ll be lots of video of drunken metalheads in bars watching Lemmy’s funeral. That’ll probably make some of us happy that we stayed home to see it…
