Legendary guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke, one third of the classic line-up of MOTÖRHEAD, has sadly passed away.

According to former manager Doug Smith, he died in hospital last night where he was being treated for pneumonia. He was 67.

Clarke, who had previously played with Harlem R&B legend Curtis Knight – a role once held by Jimi Hendrix – He joined Motörhead back in 1976, initially as second guitarist to Larry Wallis.

Over six years and as many albums, they gradually become one of the biggest, and best loved heavy rock bands to emerge from the UK.

After Motörhead, Clarke formed the band FASTWAY, who’d enjoyed a resurgence in recent years and was the last surviving member of the classic Motörhead line-up.
