Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Etc. Donate Items For “#ILoveMetal” Charity Raffle

A new “#ILoveMetal” charity raffle has been launched in an effort to raise money for Stagehand, a charity that benefits stage and road crew workers. Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Motörhead, My Dying Bride, Nuclear Blast Records, and more have donated bundles for the raffle. Each prize has a different drawing and you can enter by donating HERE.

The following was said about the initiative:

“UK Metal Merger is raising money for stage crew charity Stagehand’s #ILoveLive campaign, which is providing financial help for all UK stage crew who are in the greatest need. Stage crew seem to be the forgotten ones in the current pandemic. They’re the unsung heroes of the live entertainment world. Without them shows just couldn’t happen.

The impact of Covid-19 has been devastating for the whole music industry but particularly for the stage techs, sound engineers, guitar techs, keyboard techs, drum techs, stage managers, production managers, tour managers and other live support personnel who make shows possible.

With no shows since March 2020, crew’s income has been slashed with many finding that they are ineligible for any kind of government financial aid. Many are in desperate need and most are sitting with mental health issues.”

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”
