The son of Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister has made a touching tribute to his father as a spiritual man with a great sense of humour at his funeral.
Rock fans around the world clubbed together on Sunday morning AEDT to watch the Los Angeles farewell for the Motorhead founder and frontman.
With such limited space available at the service, held on Saturday morning local time at the Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Hollywood, band members made the funeral available for fans to watch online via Motorhead's official YouTube channel.
Lemmy was diagnosed with an extremely aggressive form of cancer on Boxing Day and died just two days later at his home in Los Angeles, shortly after celebrating his 70th birthday.
His son Paul Kilmister spoke of his father's insufferable sense of humour - which he had until the end.
Lemmy checked into the hospital as "Justin Case" and asked his pallbearers to be three giants on one side and three dwarfs on the other - stumbling along to the sound of Laurel & Hardy, he said.
He was also obsessed with music - and "never tolerated anyone talking over music, especially his", Paul said.
"Music wasn't a background sound, he would say."
Paul also revealed that Lemmy, a fan of Abba and the Bee Gees, found it difficult to perform in the sessions for the band's new album Bad Magic, but was determined the show must go on.
"Bad Magic was a struggle but Lemmy revealed no sign of his frail health," he said.
He added that Lemmy wasn't a religious man and believed there was no point praying for a miracle, but said he was spiritual.
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl described Lemmy as "my musical hero" with "such a big heart because he was so kind to everyone".
