Some more material since my last digest:
“We have honestly been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for
Lemmy from everyone everywhere. Sadly, we have also been upset
to see bootleggers wasting no time getting in on the act and
exploiting the situation. We have subsequently realised that you
want to commemorate him by getting something, so we are going
to do our best to supply that officially. Here is a shirt to start with,
we hope you like it, and we will endeavour to offer more in the
future, and please let us know what you would like to see.”
You can buy the t-shirt from the official Motörhead merchandise stores (US, ROW).

John Wright from York has created the above petition. Now I know Lemmy played rock’n’roll, but think what would have been had he not caused the creation of metal. No Lemmy, no big four and many more!
Dedicated page for the stream
Motörhead issued the following statement:
On Saturday January 9th, the world will come together and celebrate the life of our friend, and legend, Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister.
Family and close friends will observe a service at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery, Hollywood, commencing at 3pm PST and ending at 4.30pm.
With such limited space available on-site, we respectfully ask that you may not attend… but we want you ALL to be a part of this, so we are setting up a live feed of the service via the internet on Motörhead’s official You Tube channel (stay tuned for specific link details before the service).
So wherever you are, PLEASE get together and watch the service with fellow Motörheadbangers and friends. GO to your favourite bar, or your favourite club, make sure they have access to an internet connection and toast along with us.
Or simply invite your pals around and celebrate Lemmy’s life at home.
Whatever your venue, and however you can, let’s be sure to gather globally on Saturday 9th and celebrate the life of our dear friend and irreplaceable icon.
