RIP Fast Eddie Clarke

Postby Darkness_Fish » 11 Jan 2018, 11:56

Part of the classic Motorhead lineup till 1982, Fast Eddie has died of pnuemonia, aged 67.

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Shame.

Got my boy a ‘Classic Rock’ comp. for Christmas-‘Ace of Spades’ being a standout track.

RIP Eddie

So sad. A big part of my youth gone. RIP Eddie.

On the bright side, I bet they're making a godawful racket up there already.

And let us not forget the first Fastway album which was rather decent.

RIP

Sad news. The BBC did a nice (TV) tribute this afternoon - apparently after the demise of Mhead he made a blues album - anybody familiar?

Yes, that's it. Somehow I never bought this, something I should remedy. Lemmy sings one of the songs, "Laugh At The Devil".

Second band I ever saw live, Iron Fist tour, awesome live band, obviously they rocked like a mutha and were probably the loudest thing I have ever heard.
Such a shame none of them that old by modern standards.

RIP Fast Eddie the band are back together again

Oops. I stand corrected. The album listed above is a solo album from 1994.

This is the blues album from 2014:

The interviewee on the BBC snippet said it was three years ago

Very sad, love their music. Didnt see them until well after Eddie left but his era is the most fondly remembered. I dug out my Hammersmith vinyl earlier. Great player.

This is from the official facebook page. Nice.

R.I.P. Eddie.
