Lemmy's funeral will be held this Saturday, January 9th 2016, at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Los Angelas at 3.00pm LA time.

The plan is to arrange a worldwide event and the London event will be held at The Wig And Gown, 99 Holloway Road, London N7 8LT. It has been suggested by Suzanne Baker-Downes, who is organising the event, that people show up for around 9.00pm as the service will be simocast at 11.00pm UK time. The bar closes at 1.00am.

The Rainbow Bar and Grill on Los Angeles' Sunset Strip announced that, fittingly, it will be the site of a memorial service for the departed Motörhead frontman on Saturday.

The club made the following statement on their Facebook page: "Join us Saturday, January 9th as we say goodbye a dear friend and loved one. We will open our doors at 2pm."

This was accompanied by a picture of him in front of a video game, accompanied by the words: "Memorial services to be held at the Rainbow Bar and Grill. 2pm till 2am Saturday, January 9th. Come celebrate the life of Lemmy Kilmister. Legends never die".

The band's official statement of Lemmy's passing said that he was at home playing a video game that had been delivered from the Rainbow on the day he died.

Following Lemmy's death on December 28th, the Rainbow wrote on their Facebook page: "It's hard to believe that we will never again see your smiling face at the end of the bar. You've been a wonderful friend to us all. You will forever live on in our hearts. And hold court at the Rainbow Bar And Grill."

We'll be at The Wig And Gown on Saturday night and a full report will follow next week.

At the time of writing, many other tributes are being planned globally.
