Watch Dave Grohl’s Eulogy At Lemmy’s Memorial Service

Yesterday, Motörhead held and livestreamed a memorial service for frontman Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, who passed away in December. His friends gathered at LA’s Forest Lawn Memorial Park to pay their respects, with rockers including Motörhead’s Mikkey Dee, Guns N’ Roses’ Slash and Matt Sorum, Anthrax’s Scott Ian, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, Metallica’s Robert Trujillo and Lars Ulrich, and Alice In Chains’ Mike Inez all sharing fond memories of Lemmy. The service was closed out with a heartfelt, emotional eulogy from Dave Grohl, who recounted the story of meeting his hero for the first time at a strip club in LA. (Unfortunately, the stream glitches out just as Grohl relates the first words that Lemmy ever said to him, but according to those in attendance, they were “Sorry about your friend Kurt [Cobain].”) Fittingly, the evening concluded with a drone of bass feedback as Motörhead’s manager announced “Lemmy has left the building.” Watch Grohl’s speech and the rest of the service below.
