Story of Lemmy statue captured in new documentary

A new short documentary about the statue of Lemmy that now stands outside the Rainbow bar in LA has been posted on YouTube.

Titled ‘Live To Win: The Statue Of Lemmy Kilmister’, the film was created by Rocio Romero and speaks to various people involved in the project throughout the process. The Motorhead frontman, of course, died last December, and the statue was unveiled in August this year.

“When Lemmy died, I woke up that day … [and] I wrote [on Facebook], ‘There should be a statue of Lemmy outside the Rainbow Bar & Grill'”, says Hirax frontman Katon De Pena, who ended up raising $23,000 through crowdfunding for the project.

“People started saying, ‘that’s a great idea’, so by noon that day there were so many people that had left comments, I was like, ‘screw it, we’ll start a petition'”.
