The Rainbow Bar & Grill is a fixture on the Sunset strip. And up until a few days ago, on any given night, you could walk in and find Lemmy sitting at the corner of their outside bar playing the poker machine all night long. The first time you see it, you think… holy shit, it's Lemmy. But, the more times you go back, the more commonplace it became, because Lemmy never left. Hell, the seat even has a plaque that says the stool is reserved for the late Motorhead frontman.
So, it only makes sense that Lemmy's public memorial be held at his favorite watering hole. The Rainbow made the announcement earlier this weekend:
A twelve hour rager on a Saturday at the Rainbow? I cannot even imagine the debauchery that will go down.
Lemmy died this past Monday, Dec. 28th from an aggressive form of cancer. He learned of his cancer prognosis only two days before his death, and in the wake of his death many notable metal musicians posted touching tributes to the Motorhead frontman.
