Lemmy will be remembered on Saturday (January 9) with a 12-hour memorial at his local watering hole, the Rainbow Bar and Grill in West Hollywood, California. The celebration of the Motörhead singer's life gets under way at 2 p.m. and runs until 2 in the morning.
Lemmy, who lived down the street, was often seen sitting at the bar playing his favorite video trivia game. He died on December 28, less than a week after his 70th birthday.
Though Motorhead is now history, someone forgot to tell one ticket company in England, which sent out an e-mail last week advertising this year's Download festival. It said, "Make sure you don't miss Ozzy, Lemmy, Dave Mustaine and Bruce Dickinson when they return to the home of rock this June."
A spokesman later apologized, saying, "We sincerely apologize for our e-mail advertising Lemmy at Download. It was sent in error. We can only say sorry for any upset we caused fans."
