Lemmy’s ashes sent inside bullets to his ‘closest friends’ – Music News



Lemmy’s ashes were placed inside bullets and sent to his close friends.

The Motörhead legend passed away in December 2015, at the age of 70, a short while after being diagnosed with cancer, and his request before his death has been granted.

Former MTV ‘Headbangers Ball’ host Riki Rachtman has taken to social media to share a picture of the golden bullet he received engraved with the ‘Ace of Spades’ hitmaker’s name.

He captioned his Twitter post: “Before his death #Lemmy asked for his ashes to be  put in some bullets & handed out to his closest friends Today I received a bullet & was literally brought to tears Thank you @myMotorhead.”

Meanwhile, a biopic about the late rocker is in the works.

‘Lemmy’ is set to focus on the heavy metal icon’s life before he joined Motörhead and is being directed by Greg Olliver, who helmed the 2010 documentary of the same name.

The film aims to show the “compelling, complicated and lion-hearted man” Lemmy was behind the “rock ‘n’ roll façade”.

It will also detail his early life, working as Jimi Hendrix’s roadie, and his stint in 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 n’ roll clichés, but because he was creating them.

“Marlboro Reds and Jack Daniel’s for breakfast, speed for dinner — all true.

“But behind that steely-eyed façade of rock ‘n’ roll was also a compelling, complicated and lion-hearted man who stayed the course and never gave up playing the music that made him happy.

“We’ve been carefully developing this biopic since 2013, making sure to stay true to Lemmy, Motörhead band members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee, and all the other folks that played important roles in Lemmy’s life. This will be a film they’ll be proud of.”

The biopic – which has been in the work for several years – will be produced by Andre Relis and Damon Lane. Whilst Motörhead’s manager, Todd Singerman, is listed as an executive producer with Steffan Chirazi.

Medeni Griffiths is said to be penning the script with the help of Greg.
