Fast Eddie Clarke, Lemmy’s man for five Motorhead albums, died yesterday (January 10) at the age of 67. He’d been ill with pneumonia.
Eddie was part of Motorhead from 1976 until 1982, including albums like “Overkill,” “Bomber”–and which means that he’s the guy playing here.
Later as part of Fastway, Eddie had a sizeable rock radio hit with this track.
The entire now classic Motorhead lineup is gone. Lemmy left us in December 2015 as the result of cancel. Drummer Philthy “Animal” Taylor died a month earlier as a result of liver failure.
