Lemmy’s family wants you to have a drink and celebrate the legendary Motörhead frontman’s life — online.

The family of Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister said in a statement this week that Forest Hills cemetery, which will hold his memorial service at 3 p.m. PT today, can’t possibly accommodate all of the fans who would like to say goodbye. So they’re respectfully asking:

PLEASE get together and watch the service with fellow Motörheadbangers and friends. GO to your favorite bar, or your favorite club, make sure they have access to an internet connection and toast along with us.
Or simply invite your pals around and celebrate Lemmy’s life at home.”

Los Angeles-area fans can visit the clubs near Lemmy’s Sunset Strip hangout, the Rainbow Bar and Grill, to mourn the gravelly voiced icon. The Los Angeles Times reports that the Rainbow will be closed for a private memorial from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday night, but nearby clubs the Roxy and the Whiskey A Go Go will welcome fans looking to drown their sorrows.
