There was nothing more METAL happening in the world on Saturday than Lemmy’s memorial service at Forest Lawn cemetery in Hollywood. Speakers included Slash, Dave Grohl, Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo from Metallica, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford,Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee, Scott Ian from Anthrax, and WWE superstar Triple H.
Grohl closed out the ceremony, and broke down while he read a psalm from a pamphlet given to him by Little Richard, of whom both he and Lemmy were fans. He also said the first thing Lemmy ever said to him was, “Sorry about your friend Kurt.” Slash said Lemmy, quote, “had more integrity in one finger than a room full of rock n’ rollers, and straight up honest and 100-percent loyal.
