TMZ reports that original Motorhead guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clark has passed away at the age of 67 after a battle with pnuemonia. He reportedly died peacefully. He was the last of the original band members after the passing of Lemmy Kilmister and Phil Taylor died two years ago.

Drummer Mikkey Dee wrote in a post on Facebook: “OH MY FUCKING GOD, this is terrible news, the last of The Three Amigos. I saw Eddie not too long ago and he was in great shape. So this is a complete shock. Me and Eddie always hit it off great. I was looking forward to seeing him in the UK this summer when we around with the Scorps…Now Lem and Philthy can jam with Eddie again, and if you listen carefully I’m sure you´ll hear them, so watch out!!! My thoughts go out to Eddie´s family and close ones.

Motorhead formed in 1975 and Clarke stayed with the group until 1982, when he formed the band Fastway.

411 would like to give our condolences to his family, friends and fans.
