Former Motörhead guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke has died at the age of 67.

According to Chiswick Records founder Ted Carroll, who signed Motörhead in 1977, Clarke died in hospital yesterday where he was being treated for pneumonia. Motörhead confirmed the news with a post on their official Facebook page:

Clarke played on Motörhead's 1977 self-titled debut album, 1979's 'Overkill' and 'Bomber', 1980's 'Ace Of Spades' and 1982's 'Iron Fist', before leaving the band during their 1982 US tour, reportedly unhappy at the results of the 'Iron Fist' album. He went on to form Fastway with UFO bassist Pete Way.

Clarke was the last surviving member of Motörhead's classic line up, Lemmy and Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor having died in 2015.
