Iconic Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister died at the age of 70 on December 28, and tributes from famous fans — and science geeks — have been pouring in since.
 
Now, everyone will get a final chance to pay their respects to the late rocker by attending his funeral — sort of. Scheduled to take place in Hollywood this Saturday (January 9), the ceremony will be livestreamed on YouTube. 
 
In a Facebook post, the band explained that there would be limited space at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery, and "respectfully ask that you don't attend the cemetery." Rather, they are encouraging fans to celebrate the life of Lemmy with their own gatherings while streaming the service online.
 
"So wherever you are, PLEASE get together and watch the service with fellow Motörheadbangers and friends," the message reads. "GO to your favorite bar, or your favorite club, make sure they have access to an internet connection and toast along with us."
