The HOH mourns the death of “Fast” Eddie Clarke, the last remaining member of Motörhead’s classic lineup.
The official Motörhead Facebook page posted, “We are devastated to pass on the news we only just heard ourselves earlier tonight…Edward Allan Clarke – or as we all know and love him Fast Eddie Clarke – passed away peacefully yesterday,” the band wrote. “Ted Carroll (who formed Chiswick Records) made the sad announcement via his FB page, having heard from Doug Smith that Fast Eddie passed peacefully in hospital where he was being treated for pneumonia…”
Clarke was the last surviving member of the “classic” Motörhead lineup. Phil Taylor died of liver failure in November 2015, and Lemmy succumbed to cancer the following month.
