Motörhead ‘s “Fast” Eddie Clarke has died

Today is another day of mourning for rock and heavy metal fans alike. Eddie Clarke, the last remaining member of the original Motörhead has passed away. The news broke via Ted Carroll’s Facebook page where he confirms Eddie died in hospital whilst being treated for pneumonia.

“Just got the sad news from Doug Smith that ‘Fast’ Eddie Clark the great guitarist who played on all of MOTORHEAD’S biggest hits passed away peacefully last night. He died in hospital where he was being treated for pneumonia. R. I P.”

It is safe to say that the influence Clarke had on the world of rock music was just as important as his noisy chums Lemmy Kilmister and Phil Taylor. Together they created one of the most recognisable sounds we’ve ever heard in music and for that, we salute you.

R.I.P. Eddie Clarke, he was 67.
