Motorhead frontman Lemmy has been paid a fitting tribute this week through his immortalization at Hollywood's Rainbow bar and grill, the rockstar's favourite haunt.

The bassist/vocalist of notorious hell raisers Motorhead, has been sculpted into a life size bronze sculpture that was commissioned after both fans and friends contributed to a fundraising campaign following his untimely death last December.

Attending the unveiling of the statue was Motorohead's long time manager Todd Singerman and his girlfriend Cheryl Keuleman who stood alongside a number of rock and metal fans. Referencing the 6ft statue Singerman told the Press Association that " I look at him no differently that Johnny Cash, the Beatles and so on. He was real."

Before the official unveiling of the statue a tribute was held for Lemmy at the Whiskey A Go Go where members of Quiet Riot, Pantera, LA Guns , King's X, Butcher Babies and more played more than 20 tracks by artists including Motorhead, Saxon, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden.

Lemmy's girlfriend Cheryl went on to state, " One of Lemmy's worst fears was that when he died the world would forget about him. He's now immortal. "
