MotorHead's now Truly dead, last original trio member Fast Eddie Clarke, has passed away @ the age of 67. 

The band's Facebook page announced that the guitarist died in hospital after being admitted with pneumonia.

Clarke, whose nickname was Fast Eddie, played with Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister and Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor in the heavy metal band between 1976-82.

He played on the first six Motorhead albums, later going on to form Fastway with UFO bassist Peter Way.

The social media statement also contained tributes from later band members including guitarist Phil Campbell.

He said: "Just heard the sad news that Fast Eddie Clarke has passed away. He will be remembered for his iconic riffs and was a true rock and roller, RIP Eddie."

The band's ex-drummer Mikkey Dee added: "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. I was looking forward to seeing him in the UK this summer.

"Now Lem and Philthy can jam with Eddie again and if you listen carefully I'm sure you'll hear them, so watch out!"

Damn! 

ya, bummer eh??, although MotorHead was all Lemmy imo. Clarke went on to help start 80's hairband "Fastway" ....RIP MotorHead

I've read a few books and interviews, he was a bit of a role model for me I kind of fugured he'd just always be there, "After WW3 there'd be cockroaches and Lemmy", they used to play the local area where i was brought up in the UK, verifiable, genuine legend. Fuck the world and Hawkwind lol

I moved to OZ at 13 so i'm a "pommie cunt" to me mates
