Dave Grohl’s eulogy

As Motörhead’s frontman Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister was laid to rest on Saturday, his friend David Grohl honored him with an emotional eulogy.

In his tribute, Grohl recalled the first time he ever met Lemmy, about 20 years ago at a strip club called Crazy Girls. “I was walking back to the men’s room,” he says. “On the way back, I looked to my left and I saw Lemmy by himself in the corner on a video game. And it blew my mind. I knew that I couldn’t just go say something because he was on his own in the corner. On the way out I thought, ‘I have to say something. He’s my hero. He’s the one true rock’n’roller that bridged my love of ACDC and Sabbath and Zeppelin with my love of GBH and the Ramones and Black Flag.’
