Motorhead‘s surviving members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee have enshrined late frontman Lemmy Kilmister‘s ashes at the Lemmy’s Bar in the German village of Wacken.
They also displayed a surprise performance at the Wacken Open Air Festival.
Speaking about the memorial in a video, Dee said, “We’d like to spread it around the whole world [at whatever big festivals that we enjoyed, or Lemmy enjoyed. His spirit has always been here, or at these festivals, and now we have a little bit of a physical deal here as well.”
“People come and pay their respects for a long, long time to come,” Campbell said.
Earlier, Campbell and Dee led a parade featuring floats from the festival site that ended at Lemmy’s Bar.
The Motorhead guitarist and drummer then placed Kilmister’s ashes in a display case next to his hat, boots, bass guitar, and Marshall stack.
