Lemmy’s ashes to be enshrined at Wacken

as the legend continues to cement his global immortality

ON AUGUST 2nd 2023, the legendary, immortal Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister will be honored with an unforgettable symbolic act at the famous Wacken Festival in Wacken, Germany, as part of Lemmy Forever, a weekend celebration of his life, legacy, and his continuing indomitable presence as one the world’s most important artistic cultural figures. Motörhead’s Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee will lead the festivities.


The Lemmy Forever celebration will further cement Lemmy’s place as the ultimate man of the people, a man who refused to live life on any other terms than his own, who welcomed all, who didn’t tolerate idiocy, and who lived with courage, conviction, and a damn fine sense of humour (as well as being one of the greatest bassists to grace the globe).


Throughout the festival, there will also be numerous opportunities to raise a toast to Lemmy with fellow friends and bands on the bill.

“Wacken was one of Lemmy’s dearest homes and we’re delighted he has a place here forever,” says manager Todd Singerman. “He was a man of the people, and as such, he ‘lived’ in many places worldwide. It’s our aim to allow him to rest permanently in all his ‘homes’ globally, and allow his fans worldwide to have a place close to them where they can both pay respects and celebrate his enormous continuing legacy and influence.”

Chris Ianuzzi: Distant Suns/Wide Side two-sided single

Story: Ralph Greco, Jr. Spacey blips flow into a synth-led danceable beat, with vocals making more music than they do an actual statement on the first tune of NYC-composer Chris Ianuzzi’s new double single. This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
