Gimme a Lemmy

by Jeff Cornell

Following the news that a Motorhead fan started a petition to have an element named after the band’s legendary frontman, a new petition has begun: it’s goal is to have the world recognize the metal icon’s favorite cocktail, Jack Daniels Whiskey and Coca-Cola, as a “Lemmy.”

The petition was started under the name @gimmealemmy states: “A Jack Daniels and Coke will forever be associated with Ian Fraser ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister, the iconic founder of Motorhead. To celebrate and remember one of Rock and Roll’s true legends, I petition everyone to henceforth and hereafter refer to the combination of Jack Daniels Whiskey and Coca-Cola as a ‘Lemmy.'”

It should be an easy change to rename the famous Jack and Coke in places like The Rainbow in West Hollywood, which was Lemmy’s frequent haunt, but it will be interesting to see if it catches on around the world.

As of press time the petition has over 14,000 signatures and counting.
