A statute of the one and only Lemmy was unveiled last night at Rainbow Bar & Grill in West Hollywood.
Fans of the late Motörhead frontman Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister raised over $22,000 for a life-size statue at his favorite bar. It wasn’t unusual to see him sitting at the end of the bar playing his favorite video game. The Rainbow was Lemmy’s home.
Todd Singerman, Motörhead’s long-time manager said, “One of Lemmy’s worst fears was that when he died, the world would forget about him. He’s now immortal. No one ever will forget about him because he was a god. He was a man, but he was a god.”
The statue was created by artist Travis Moore with the help of 20 people and took about five months to build.
Lemmy passed away on December 28, 2015, only few days after his 70th birthday.
He was one of our favorite people to have at Riot Fest and he is missed every day. He definitely won’t be forgotten. Long Live Lemmy.
