Rob Halford (Judas Priest) Reveals He Received One Of The Bullets Containing The Ashes Of The Late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead)

As previously reported, the ashes of the late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) were placed inside bullets and given out to his closest friends. Now, it has been confirmed that Rob Halford (Judas Priest) was one of those recipients.

Halford told “SpeedFreaks” the following:

“When Lemmy passed away, I had this beautiful opportunity to speak at his memorial. We had a great get-together; all of us musicians from all over the world, we met in Hollywood and we talked about Lemmy and his great life and the things that he’s left us. And then, not too far back, I get something in the mail from the Lemmy people; Lemmy’s office, his manager and everybody still work tirelessly to keep his name with us, as he always will be. They sent me — it’s a bullet [laughs], it’s a bullet with some of Lemmy’s ashes inside of it.”

“This is nuts. This is the kind of thing that Lemmy would have loved to have done. However you choose to interpret what I’ve just said, that’s entirely up to you. But to be thought of, to be brought into this small circle of friends where you actually own a little bit of Lemmy’s ashes and you wear it around your neck on a pendant and he’s close to your heart in the truest sense in terms of his mortal remains, that’s just mind-blowingly powerful. To use an object like that to carry his remains is just so Lemmy — it’s provocative, it makes you think, it makes you talk. But as far as having a beautiful part of Lemmy physically with me right now in my house, that’s just magical.”

The Ashes Of The Late Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) Were Put Into Bullets And Given To His Closest Friends

According to Loudwire, the ashes of the late great Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) have been placed inside bullets and given out to his closest friends. Two of the recipients have been identified and they include Riki Rachtman (“Headbangers Ball”) and Whitfield Crane (Ugly Kid Joe). Rachtman shared a photo of his bullet earlier today (March 22), while former tennis star Pat Cash shared a photo of Crane’s bullet last year. Crane also received the following message:

“Whitfield, We all know Lemmy knew many people, but he had few that he considered friends and even fewer that he considered family. Being that you are one those people he considered family, we would like to share a little piece of him with you. Lemmy touched all our lives in a way we don’t think any of us could ever forget, but with these ashes you not only keep the memories you have, you keep Lemmy with you forever. He was Lemmy. He played Rock ‘n’ Roll Don’t Forget Him”
