Lemmy statue to be unveiled in public event next month
Full-size statue of late Motorhead icon Lemmy will be installed in LA’s Rainbow Bar & Grill at public ceremony in August
A full-size statue of late Motorhead icon Lemmy will be unveiled in his favourite haunt, the Rainbow Bar & Grill in Los Angeles, next month.
The bronze sculpture was created by artist Travis Moore after fans and friends contributed to a fundraising campaign following Lemmy’s death in December.
It’s to be installed as the centrepiece of a shrine in the venue’s patio bar area on August 24, with members of the public welcome to attend.
Campaign organiser Katon De Pena said in January: “Lemmy was dedicated to us – now is our chance to say ‘thank you.’ Travis will create the best Lemmy sculpture on the planet.”
He later described the statue as “fucking amazing,” adding: “Wait until you see it!”
Moore – who’s called it “the best project I’ve had the chance to be part of” – worked for free, with the money spent on covering costs of materials and production. Remaining funds will be donated to cancer research.
