LONDON (CelebrityAccess) Edward “Fast Eddie” Clarke, 67, longtime guitarist for Motorhead, died Jan. 10 while in a hospital while being treated for pneumonia.
Clarke was the last surviving member of the band’s famous lineup of Lemmy Kilmister and Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor, both of whom died in 2015.
Clarke left Motorhead in 1982 and later formed his own band, Fastway. He was known for producing some of Motorhead’s biggest hits including its staple, “Ace of Spades.”
