Food & Beverage Magazine has officially renamed Jack & Coke as “The Lemmy” in honor of late Motorhead legend Lemmy Kilmister.
The rocker – who died from cancer at his Los Angeles home on December 28 – joins the ranks of Arnold Palmer, Bellini, Shirley Temple and Tom Collins as a name brand for his favorite drink.
“We are honored to represent the industry and bring the moniker, “The Lemmy” to every bar in the world!”, says Food and Beverage Magazine Publisher Michael Politz. “Owning a rock club with Anthrax’s Scott Ian and Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell gave me the chance to meet Lemmy and experience his legend myself.”
Motorhead fans recently launched a petition to have the drink renamed to The Lemmy, with more than 40,000 signatures on board.
Family, friends and fellow rockers paid tribute to Lemmy at a memorial service in Hollywood on Saturday that was streamed live to more than 250,000 viewers worldwide via the band’s YouTube channel.
Motorhead’s 1980 classic, “Ace Of Spades”, returned to the UK charts this week.
The track reached a new all-time peak at No. 13 on the UK singles chart; it originally hit No. 15 upon its release, and last entered the Top 40 22 years ago, hitting Number 23 when it was re-issued in September 1993.
