    Just heard the news on the radio that he died tonight. He was the last surviving member of the early classic lineup of Motorhead.

    Holy hell my youth is finally gone.

    He was a Strat guy exclusively, but still. Thanks for the memories.

    Side note: when albums and tapes fell to the plague of CDs I held off until I saw that Motorhead released on CD. Thatsvwhen I finally bought my first one.

    Early reports are saying he was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia and supposedly died from that. 67 years old.

    Love this: It was during Clarke's tenure with the band that Motörhead got the reputation of being one of the loudest bands in rock. "Man, it wasn't our fault," he recalled in the band's biography Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers. "I was forever trying ... to hear myself, so I was forever adding fucking amps over my side, and Lemmy was just adding more and more on his side, and then Phil [Taylor] had bigger monitors. It was ... each one of us, because we never interfered with each other's stuff." Story here: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/motorhead-guitarist-fast-eddie-clarke-dead-at-67-w515327
