From the ashes of Kurt Cobain, scattered between a Buddhist temple and the Wishkah River, near Seattle, to those of Keith Richards’s father, who the guitarist once confessed to having inhaled, although he later relativized, there are many stories written with the remains of famous musicians or around them. And that of Lemmy Kilmister, creator and leader of Motörhead is no exception.
But unlike other cases, in which there is talk of ashes thrown into the sea, kept in chests or deposited behind the arch of a famous stadium or thrown into the wind from a mountain, in the case of the bass player, the chosen destiny is marked by the friendships that he knew how to achieve.
Is that Lemmy’s ashes have been used to create tattoos for Motörhead’s tour director and production assistant. The leader of the iconic heavy metal band died in December 2015, at the age of 70, shortly after being diagnosed with cancer.

A request to repeat
And the hitman ‘Ace of Spades’ request before his death was that his ashes were placed inside the bullets and sent to his loved ones. And now, team members Eddie Rocha and Emma Cederblad have shared a video of them receiving the permanent tribute to their late friend.
The clip begins with the caption: “Some of Lemmy’s ashes were shared with close friends and family.” The bullet is then displayed before the dusty residue is seen to slide into the ink to create a portrait of the musician for Eddie’s leg, and the band’s iconic shovel emblem for Emma.
Riki Rachtman, former MTV host Headbangers Ball was the first to share the golden bullet he received engraved with Lemmy’s name earlier this year. He captioned his Twitter post: “Before his death #Lemmy asked that his ashes be put in some bullets and they were given to his closest friends Today I took a bullet and it literally made me cry Thank you @myMotorhead. “
Lemmy Kilmister passed through Argentina several times, to appear at Luna Park, among other venues.
The biopic is coming
Meanwhile, a biopic about the latest rocker is in the works. Lemmy focuses on the life of the heavy metal icon before joining Motörhead and is directed by Greg Olliver, who directed the 2010 documentary of the same name.
The aim of the film is to show the “convincing, complicated, lion-hearted man” Lemmy was behind the “rock ‘n’ roll facade.” It will also detail his early life, working as a Jimi Hendrix roadie, and his stint at Hawkwind.
In a statement issued last summer, the filmmaker said: “Everything you’ve heard about Lemmy is probably true … Not because he was embracing rock and roll cliches, but because he was creating them. “
Original Motörhead members Larry Wallis, Lemmy Kilmister and Lucas Fox; the biopic will inquire into the previous creation of the group. .
“Marlboro Reds and Jack Daniel’s for breakfast, speed for dinner – all true. But behind that steel rock ‘n’ roll facade there was also a convincing, complicated and lion-hearted man that he stayed on course and never gave up playing the music that made him happy. “
“We have been carefully developing this biopic since 2013, making sure to stay true to Lemmy, the Motörhead band members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, and all the other people who played important roles in Lemmy’s life. This will be a movie to be proud of“, He said.
The biopic, which has been in pre-production for several years, will be produced by Andre Relis and Damon Lane. Meanwhile, Motörhead manager Todd Singerman appears as executive producer, along with Steffan Chirazi; and Medeni Griffiths is said to be writing the script with the help of Greg.
