Fans of Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister will be able to pay tribute to the late rocker with a toast at his favourite pub where his ashes will be on display. 

after a series of issues including prostate and congestive heart failure. 

His remains were turned into ashes and have since been scattered at places he loved while also being and production assistant, and even bullets. 

However, fans will now be able to visit Lemmy’s ashes at the legendary rock n’ roll bar Rainbow Bar and Grill, where they’ll be put on display inside an urn. 

Announcing the news, a message on the bar’s Instagram account said: ‘Please join us as we enshrine Lemmy’s ashes at the Rainbow Bar and Grill. We also invite you to raise a very unique toast to Lemmy and Motorhead with the unveiling of brand new Motorhead Whiskey.’ 

The special event will be taking place at the West Hollywood, California bar on April 12 at 9pm. 

Fans in the UK will have the chance to visit Lemmy’s ashes more locally with Bloodstock festival organisers announcing they will be on display at Catton Park, Derbyshire this summer before heading to Nottingham’s Rock City. 

Some of his remains were also scattered at the Wacken Open Air Festival in northern Germany where the band played many times over the years – with organisers putting on a special Lemmy Forever memorial in his honour.

Festival co-organiser Thomas Jensen said: ‘Lemmy coming back to Wacken is an enormous honour for us – words can hardly express how enormous. We will create a place of remembrance for him that does justice to his significance for an entire genre and beyond.

‘There has always been a special connection between Motörhead and Wacken Open Air; hardly any band has played here more often. The fact that his journey also ends here will forever hold a special meaning.’

Before his death, Lemmy made it known that it was his wish to have his ashes placed inside bullets and sent to his loved ones as gifts. 

To mark the sixth anniversary of his death in 2021, Motörhead’s tour manager and production assistant Eddie Rocha and Emma Cederblad paid tribute to the star by quite literally including him in their tattoos. 

Clips showed one of the bullets on a table before the ashes were slipped into pots of ink which would be used for the tattoos. In his permanent tribute to Lemmy, Eddie had the artist’s portrait inked onto his leg, while Emma opted for Motörhead’s iconic space emblem. 

The metal and rock pioneer died just two days after he was told he had cancer, and was laid to rest in early 2016.
