It has not been a good year and a half for celebrities and rock stars, and sadly, we just lost another legend.

Motorhead guitarist and last surviving original member “Fast Eddie” Clark passed away peacefully after battling pneumonia for some time. Clark, 67, was one of the original members of the band, which was formed in 1974, but left the group in 1982 to form the band Fastway.

More from TMZ:

The band formed in ’75 and they produced some monster songs, including “Motorhead” and “Ace of Spades.” They also produced some super successful albums, including the band’s first self-titled album as well as “Overkill and Bomber.”

Clarke was working on re-fitting a houseboat, when he met drummer Phil Taylor. Taylor had recently joined Motörhead and introduced Clarke to Lemmy; it was not long before he was playing with them. In the early days Eddie rehearsed with Motörhead, before going on the road, at Snobs Rehearsal Studios, part of a converted brewery on the corner of Kings Road and Lots Road, Chelsea, known as the “Furniture Cave”. Motörhead’s popularity increased along with their UK chart successes. The threesome (Lemmy, Clarke, Taylor) are considered the classic Motörhead line-up and have the Motörhead, Overkill, Ace of Spades, Bomber, No Sleep ’til Hammersmith and Iron Fist albums plus a string of hit singles to their credit. He performed a lead vocal on five Motörhead songs: “Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers” (on which he traded vocals with Lemmy), “I’m Your Witchdoctor” (on which he duets vocals with Lemmy), “Step Down” and an alternative version of “Stone Dead Forever” (which later appeared on the Bomber Deluxe Edition), and “Emergency” one of the B-side tracks on The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre EP, upon which they performed “Please Don’t Touch”, with Girlschool, under the combined band names of HeadGirl.

Unfortunately, Clark joins a long list of celebrities and mucisions who’ve died in the past year. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
