Between May 17 and June 17, Germany’s official post office Deutsche Post is honouring the late Motörhead legend Lemmy through a set of 10 stamps. In order to make this happen, Deutsche Post teamed up with the newspaper Bild. The newspaper released an official statement that said:
“The German official post office Deutsche Post together with Bild are honoring our beloved late Lemmy Kilmister with an official set of German postage stamps for standard size letters. One stamp package contains 10 stamps, five Lemmy motifs altogether and everyone can compile the stamps the way they like. These stamps are limited to 7777 – Lemmy’s lucky seven – and will be available for four weeks only, between May 17 and June 17”.
The stamps will be available for purchase at the Bild website. However, they’re unfortunately limited to Germany only.
Since the rocker’s passing, there has been a torrent of tributes across the globe. There’s a petition to change the name of Jack and Coke, the late icon’s favourite drink, to simply “The Lemmy”. Also, a Swedish Thunder Car Race has been renamed the “Lemmy 500” and the band Saxon will play with the surviving Motörhead members for the fans.
