RIP ‘Fast Eddie’ Clarke of Motörhead

Eddie Clarke, nicknamed ‘Fast Eddie’, of legendary rock band Motörhead, has died at the age of 67, as reported on the band’s Facebook page.

The three Motörhead band members, Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister vocal and bass, Eddie ‘Fast Eddie’ Clarke guitar, and Phil ‘Philthy Animal’ Taylor drums, now sadly all gone, play one of my favourite rock anthems, in Ace of Spades. I wrote this, about the song, a while ago HERE,

Released in 1980, Ace of Spades is the definitive Motörhead anthem. It’s brash, fast, loud, and raucous. A true classic heavy metal style rock song. The three bands members, Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister vocal and bass,  Eddie ‘Fast Eddie’ Clarke guitar, and Phil ‘Philthy Animal’ Taylor drums, make one helluva noise. Again this YouTube video, while not up to the quality or the popularity of later versions, has the necessary raw energy.

In 2007 I wrote here about Fast Eddie being mentioned in a parliamentary debate, and Lemmy is wont to relate the importance of the West Midlands in heavy metal rock history.
