The Original Motorhead Members Are All Gone
With the passing of original Motorhead guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clark, we've now lost all 3 of the founding members.
The original Motorhead lineup are all dead. Drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor passed away in November of 2015, singer/bassist/badass Lemmy Kilmister died in 2015 and now, guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clark is gone. The 67-year-old died in his sleep while battling pneumonia.
"“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 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."
I guess he's right ... it was time to put the band back together.
