"Fast Eddie" Clarke of Motorhead and Fastway fame has passed away at the age of 67. R.I.P., sir.

From Motorhead's official FB:

We are devastated to pass on the news we only just heard ourselves earlier tonight...Edward Allan Clarke - or as we all know and love him Fast Eddie Clarke - passed away peacefully yesterday. Ted Carroll (who formed Chiswick Records) made the sad announcement via his FB page, having heard from Doug Smith that Fast Eddie passed peacefully in hospital where he was being treated for pneumonia...

Phil Campbell said, "JUST HEARD THE SAD NEWS THAT FAST EDDIE CLARK HAS PASSED AWAY. SUCH A SHOCK, HE WILL BE REMEMBERED FOR HIS ICONIC RIFFS AND WAS A TRUE ROCK N ROLLER. RIP EDDIE."

Mikkey Dee said, "“OH MY f*cking 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 COME 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."

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

RIP FAST EDDIE CLARKE 5th October 1950 - 10th January 2018

F**K. I didn't even finish my coffee this morning and I have to read this!?! What a punch in the gut.

Lem, Philthy, and now Fast Eddie. Together again. Thanks for the music, Mr. Clarke.

Very early on I saw FASTWAY in concert. " Say What You Will" tour.
They were openers for someone big. Maybe Dio.
That particular album came out in 1983.
It was an instant heavy metal radio show hit. Like "Balls to the Wall".
So many songs were hitting the big time " Metal Health" was one.
"Looks that Kill" - and here was the Fastway song.
They must of played it, because Eddie was originally from Motorhead.
Loved Fastway's material too.
Waiting for the Roar - is my favorite release. Great guy.

Damn dude. That's harsh. Although I seem to recall a similar one with the first Ramones album after Tommy passed. Crying or Very sad
