Foo Fighters Motorhead Lemmy Dave Grohl

The heavy metal star died in December (15) after a short battle with cancer, with the Foo Fighters singer attending his funeral in Los Angeles and getting an Ace of Spades tattoo in honour of his longtime friend.

Grohl also ensured that Lemmy received a proper musical tribute at the Grammys, where the Hollywood Vampires, a supergroup comprised of Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper and Aerosmith's Joe Perry, with Guns N' Roses stars Duff MCKagan and Matt Sorum, collectively gave a rendition of Motorhead classic Ace of Spades.

Grohl introduced the performance with a dedication to Lemmy, in which he said, "He was a legend and I was proud to call him my friend. I have an Ace Of Spades tattoo, but the truth is that Lemmy left his mark on me a long, long time ago."

Lemmy Statue Gets Underway


Lemmy Motorhead

The Motorhead frontman was a regular at the Rainbow Bar & Grill in Los Angeles and owners of the venue celebrated his life by holding a memorial event in January (16), weeks after his death in December (15).

Lemmy is set to be immortalised as a life-size bronze statue, in the patio area near the bar, by sculptor Travis Moore, who has waived his usual fee.

A crowdfunding page was created on Youcaring.com to raise money for the materials and has since raised more than $20,000 (£13,800), so Moore began working on the piece on Wednesday (10Feb16).

"Lemmy recently passed away. People around the world would like a life size statue to immortalize this rock n roll icon - legend," a message posted on the fundraising page reads. "The Rainbow Bar & Grill is 100 per cent on board! The sculptor is Travis Moore who will create the best bronze Lemmy sculpture on the planet!!"

The Pantera legend was shot and killed by a crazed fan at a show in Ohio on 8 December, 2004 and his surviving bandmates and famous friends have gathered for the so-called Dimebash event in Los Angeles each year to honour his memory.

Guests at this year's (16) get-together also had another heavy rocker, Lemmy, in their thoughts, following his unexpected death in December (15), and Foo Fighters star Grohl decided to pay tribute to the late Brit with a cover of Motorhead classic Ace of Spades.

Jumping on guitar, he joined forces with Pantera's former frontman Phil Anselmo on vocals, Metallica's Robert Trujillo on bass, and ex-Slayer percussionist Dave Lombardo on drums.

Michael Schenker Motorhead Lemmy

The UFO star claims the late heavy rocker invited him to become the band's first guitarist but Schenker declined the opportunity.

"It was many years ago," he tells Metal Talk. "We toured together when he was in Hawkwind and I was with UFO. We toured the States together, and I saw Lemmy every day, but later when he started to put Motorhead together, he approached me to be his lead guitarist but I wasn't interested.

"I couldn't see that it would be something for me. I declined. I just couldn't see how it would work."
