The last breathing member of Motörhead’s most famous lineup, guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke, died Wednesday, Jan. 10, after being hospitalized for pneumonia, according to the band’s official Facebook page.
“Fast Eddie…keep roaring, rockin’ and rollin’ up there as goddamit man, your Motörfamily would expect nothing less!!” the band demanded from Clarke – in the exclamatory, thrashing Motörhead spirit, obviously.
Born Edward Allan Clarke, the 67-year-old joined the hard rock hand in 1976 and helped create some of the band’s best-selling records, like ‘Bomber,” ‘Overkill’ and Motörhead’s self-titled debut album from 1977.
Clarke’s former bandmates Lemmy Kilmister and Phil Taylor – who also belonged to the ‘Ace of Spaces’ lineup – both died in 2015, from prostate cancer and liver failure, respectively.
