That is it . The original lineup is all gone now.

Former MOTÖRHEAD and FASTWAY guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke passed away yesterday (January 10) after a battle with pneumonia. He was 67 years old.

Though that lineup hasn't played together for years it still feels like an end of an era.

"Fast" Eddie died way too fast; 67 is pretty young.

I just heard this on the news!

First Lemmy and now Eddy. So very sad.

They say he died from complications of pneumonia. RIP Eddy.

I'd be willing to bet there were plenty of hard years in that 67!
True but he ended up quitting smoking and drinking in the later years.

Shame he went early. Was an integral part of what made the early years of MH great

RIP Eddie.

Unfortunately, you are right. Rock bands were and are popular but lives were wrecked along the way with the lifestyle.

Actually first was Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor. That whole lineup gone in a span of three years.
