Motorhead's Eddie Clarke a famed guitarist

Former Motörhead guitarist Eddie Clarke, the last surviving member of the band's iconic Seventies and early Eighties line-up, has died aged 67. "RIP Fast Eddie Clarke - 5th October 1950 - 10th January 2018".

The rock band announced the news on Wednesday on their official Facebook page, sharing that Clarke - who was known as "Fast" Eddie Clarke - died in the hospital, where he was being treated for pneumonia.

"Fast Eddie... keep roaring, rockin' and rollin' up there as goddamit man, your Motörfamily would expect nothing less!"

The English heavy metal band has released 22 studio albums over a career spanning 40 years. He departed the trio after the release of 1982's Iron Fist.

Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell had this tribute, "Just heard the sad news that Fast Eddie Clarke has passed away".

Member Mikkey Dee, another Motorhead member, said on Facebook it was "terrible" news after learning of Clarke's death. So this is a complete shock. Clarke was the last surviving member of Motorhead's so-called classic lineup, which included frontman Lemmy Kilmister and drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor, who died a month apart from each other in 2015. Such a shock, he will be remembered for his iconic riffs and was a true rock n roller. I was looking forward to seeing him in the United Kingdom this summer ... Now Lem and Philthy can jam with Eddie again, and if you listen carefully I'm sure you'll hear them, so watch out! After leaving the group, Clarke formed his own band called Fastway with the bassist from UFO, Pete Way.

"My thoughts go out to Eddie's family and close ones".
