A bronze statue of Lemmy has been unveiled at his favourite bar, the Rainbow Bar and Grill in West Hollywood.

The fan-funded campaign raised nearly $23,000, reports Consequence Of Sound.

The life-sized bronze statue was sculpted by Los Angeles artist Travis Moore and was based on a photograph taken by photographer Robert John.

According to LA Weekly, Todd Singerman insists Motörhead‘s management never interfered in Moore’s design process. “This is for the fans. Nothing corporate,” he says. “Not the label, nothing. This is a fan thing and we tried to stay out of the way.”
