(Newser) – Motörhead fans, you can attend Lemmy Kilmister's memorial service. Sort of. It's happening at Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Hollywood on Saturday, but space is limited, so the band is asking that only friends and family actually attend in person, Rolling Stone reports. However, the service will be live-streamed on the band's YouTube page between 3pm and 4:30pm Pacific time, the band announced on Facebook. "So wherever you are, PLEASE get together and watch the service with fellow Motörheadbangers and friends," reads the post. "GO to your favorite bar, or your favorite club, make sure they have access to an internet connection and toast along with us. Or simply invite your pals around and celebrate Lemm’s life at home."

Or you can head to the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles—the Rainbow Bar and Grill, Kilmister's favorite bar, is starting its own 12-hour memorial service at 2pm Saturday, and so many people are interested that "we are now using the entire Strip to compensate for overflow," says a post on the bar's Facebook page, noting that the Roxy and the Whisky in particular will be taking part. For fans wanting to get even more involved, Motörhead included instructions on its Facebook post for how to send flowers to the memorial service and how to make a donation in Kilmister's memory.
