Following the death of Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister, Los Angeles’ Rainbow Bar and Grill announced Saturday that it will host a memorial service for the rocker on Jan. 9.

The popular Sunset Strip location was a favorite of many musicians, including Lemmy, who died of cancer on Dec. 28 at the age of 70. He had only learned of his diagnosis on Dec. 26.

According to an announcement on its Facebook page, the Rainbow Bar and Grill will open its doors at 2 p.m. this Saturday to “say goodbye to a dear friend and loved one.” The memorial service is just the latest in an outpouring of sentiment by the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, and Dave Grohl for the influential rocker.
