Rest in Peace Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister 1945-2015

When the above video of Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister memorial service took place, fans worldwide of the beloved Motorhead front-man made a final toast to the ultimate rock and roller whose life was a constant reminder to fully embrace and live life to the fullest -- and fastest.  Guinness World Records ranked Motorhead the fastest and loudest band of all time. Live Fast, Die Old is the aptly titled documentary below on the rock icon who died December 28th at age 70 from an aggressive form of cancer. 

Part of the reason for today's funeral being streamed live is out of concern for crowd control. There's justified fear that too many Lemmy fans might plan to descend upon on the Hollywood cemetery today.

Fans were also invited to make a charitable donation under Lemmy’s name to Ronnie James Dio's Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.

"Watch with fellow Motorheadbangers 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.”

Lemmy at Amoeba Hollywood

One of the last great charismatic and hard-living frontmen, Lemmy Kilmister, passed away today at the age of 70 "after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer," as just confirmed on the Motorhead Twitter feed.

Let us remember this giant of hard rawk with an iconic song from each of Lemmy's iconic bands: Motorhead's "Ace of Spades" and his early '70's space rock venture Hawkwind's "Silver Machine." Plus, scroll down for the "What's In My Bag?" video Amoeba shot with his supergroup HeadCat (with Danny B. Harvey of Rockats and Slim Jim Phantom of Stray Cats).
