Sad news out of the music world today, as multiple sources have confirmed the death of Fast Eddie Clarke, beloved guitarist of the iconic rock group Motörhead.
Clarke was the last surviving member of what’s regarded by fans as the band’s “classic lineup.”
News of Clarke’s passing was revealed on the official Motörhead Facebook page this morning:
“We are devastated to pass on the news we only just heard ourselves earlier tonight,” the post read.
“Edward Allan Clarke – or as we all know and love him Fast Eddie Clarke – passed away peacefully yesterday.
“Ted Carroll (who formed Chiswick Records) made the sad announcement via his FB page, having heard from Doug Smith that Fast Eddie passed peacefully in hospital where he was being treated for pneumonia.”
The message concluded:
“Fast Eddie…keep roaring, rockin’ and rollin’ up there as goddammit, man, your Motorfamily would expect nothing less!!!”
Clarke was with the band from 1976 until 1982, during which time, he helped record such classic albums as Ace of Spades and No Sleep ‘til Hammersmith.
Clarke left the band abruptly in the middle of an American tour following a creative dispute.
While he was only with Motörhead for six years, his contribution to the group’s signature sound remained evident in the dozens of albums that followed his departure.
Clarke went on to form the band Fastway with UFO bassist Phil Way.
The group released seven studio albums over the course of thirty years.
Clarke’s passing represents the end of an era for Motörhead’s cultishly devoted fan base.
In 2015, the band’s legendary frontman Lemmy Kilmister passed away at the age of 70.
Just weeks earlier, Phil Taylor, the best-known of the band’s many drummers, died unexpectedly at age 61.
As the last remaining member of the group’s most creatively fruitful years, Clarke was viewed as the final link to a bygone era in rock.
Tens of thousands of tributes to Clarke from family friends and a legion fans began flooding social media just minutes after the news of his passing went public.
Motorhead guitarist Eddie Clarke is dead. Clarke, who went by “Fast Eddie,” died peacefully after fighting pneumonia. He was the last of the OGs from the band. Motorhead frontman Lemmy (aka Ian Kilmister) and bandmate Phil Taylor died 2 years ago.…
It seems not a month goes by that without some news of another Duggar birth or pregnancy.
At this point, Jim Bob and Michelle have so many grandkids it can be a struggle to keep them all straight.
Fortunately, it doesn’t seem as though the kids are wanting for attention.
In addition to the love of their parents, the new generation of Duggars enjoys the affection of an army of aunts and uncles, as well as millions of fans all over the world.
So when a milestone is reached, the occasion is celebrated not only by the family but by the entirety of Duggar Nation.
And lately, there’s been so much cause for celebration coming from the Seewald household that it’s been difficult to keep up with it all.
Jessa Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald, are parents to 2-year-old Spurgeon and 11-month-old Henry.
Needless to say, it’s a hectic home, and quite understandably, Jessa’s house is often a mess.
By while the mother of two has been applauded for sharing candid photos of cluttered abode, it’s the achievements of her two boys that really win fans’ hearts:
This week saw a handful of memorable moments, as Henry (above) stood on his own for the first time.
Jessa shared photos from the big day and noted that it took place shortly after Spurgeon turned two:
“We had a fun time celebrating Spurgeon’s birthday yesterday. We’re so grateful to God for this sweet little boy,” Jessa wrote on Instagram.
“It has been such a joy to watch him grow and learn this past year. Can’t believe he’s already 2 years old!”
Of course, they call ‘em the terrible twos for a reason, and it seems Jessa has already come to accept that she’ll need to take the good with the bad:
Jessa posted the above video to Instagram earlier today along with the following explanation:
“Henry tried to break apart Spurgeon’s car tracks, so big bro shouted ‘Noooo!’ Baby replied with, what sounded like, “Yeaaah!” So big bro hovered over his tracks in a protective manner and said ‘Nooo!’ again.
“Ha! And so it continued. The toddler was distraught, and the baby didn’t have clue. #FirstVerbalArgument”
It’s a good thing that Jessa has a sense of humor about moments like these.
She’s sure to experience many more of them in the years to come.

Tyrese says he’s not mad at The Rock for doing a spin-off of ‘Fast & Furious,’ but then Tyrese goes after him with a vengeance, essentially saying he’s a selfish actor who screwed his loyal fan base just to get ahead. We got the ‘Fast’ actor…
The ninth installment in the popular The Fast And The Furious film series won’t be out until 2020, but it looks like this cast is going to generate enough drama to keep us entertained until then.
This week, Tyrese Gibson, who plays Roman Pearce in the films, is slamming Dwayne Johnson, who plays Luke Hobbs. Why?
Because Dwayne Johnson accepted a spinoff which Tyrese feels delayed production of the 9th film … and was a betrayal of the entire cast!
Tyrese taking swipes at Dwayne Johnson is hardly the first time that the men of the Fash & Furious franchise have let their drama spill out into the public.
Dwayne Johnson, who was not in the series at the beginning, took to social media to slam his Fast 8 costars in an epic rant.
This is a guy who gives off a “cuddly” image to his fans, but he was not only exposing the on-set drama to the public, but also bashing unnamed male costars.
It was quickly obvious that Dwayne’s not-so-subtle rant was targeted at costar Vin Diesel.
Which … might be the first time, in our recollection, that anyone has ever publicly had a problem with Vin Diesel. He’s just a very buff nerd with a deep voice. This is the guy who taught Dame Judi Dench how to play Dungeons and Dragons.
Vin Diesel’s response was very mellow and honestly pretty vague, which really fits his brand. He’s not really Riddick, he just plays him in films.
The feud between these two beefcake actors has been going strong for a while now.
And Tyrese is very decidedly on Vin Diesel’s side. Especially now that Dwayne Johnson has accepted a role to star in a spin-off.
In an Instagram post, Tyrese Gibson shared his thoughts about the direction of the Fast & Furious franchise … and whose fault it was.
“Diversity, love, multi ethnic worldwide multi generational, United Nations, One Race, Fast Family…… Until Dewayne showed up.”
That sounds like an adaptation of the opening lines to Avatar: The Last Airbender, right?
“I guess this whole time he had a problem cause he wasn’t the ONLY ONE on the movie poster……”
“….. I guess dreams do come true congratulations to @hhgarcia41 and @therock you guys are just amazing you really broke up the #FastFamily”
Hiram Garcia is also joining Dwayne Johnson in the spin-off.
“I tried to warn you guys… You thought I was hating…… I was simply fighting to keep the family together what makes us great is when you see us all TOGETHER we don’t fly solo…..”
Ensemble casts can make for the best storytelling.
“#MyLastPost today….. I got 3 years of venting on this clown – They offered but YOU didn’t have to agree with a solo #HobbsMovie”
If he has three years of venting built up, we imagine that he’ll have more to say in the coming days … and years, actually.
“#OriginalFastFamily we salute you and stand on your shoulders #VinDiesel #PaulWalker #RobCohen #RomanTej were offered a spin off we TURNED IT DOWN!!!”
Invoking the late Paul Walker’s name might be a bit much, but Paul Walker was very close friends with Vin Diesel.
Now, we don’t know if Dwayne Johnson actually had a prima donna issue with being part of an ensemble cast instead of playing the lead.
He does tend to project a larger than life image, and we’re not just talking about how swole he is.
Tyrese may genuinely believe that Dwayne Johnson’s motivations are egomaniacal, but that doesn’t make it true.
And in all fairness we should point out that some of Dwayne’s supporters have argued that Vin Diesel turned down his own similar offer because they weren’t offering him enough money, not out of loyalty.
We … don’t know that this is the case. That doesn’t really fit Vin Diesel’s brand or personality at all.
But we felt like we should mention that counter-argument anyway.
For his part, Vin Diesel simply shared a photo of himself with Tyrese and Paul Walker.
Vin captioned that photo: “Brotherhood.”
It’s not a direct response, sure, but it definitely seems like it’s a vague endorsement of Tyrese’s intentions if not necessarily of all of his words.
That’s very much Vin Diesel’s style.
All of this makes us wonder — is Vin Diesel going to have more time to produce his Riddick franchise TV series and more Riddick movies since Fast 9 has been pushed back and Vin didn’t accept the spin-off?
Sorry, but we’ve got to look for the silver lining in all of this.
