Earlier this morning we learned that former Motörhead/Fastway guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke passed away yesterday after a battle with pneumonia. Since the news broke, tributes from all over the world have begun to come in. Check out what members of Motörhead, Metallica, Anthrax, Guns N’ Roses, and more had to say below.
All of us at Fastway HQ are absolutely heartbroken to have to post this – we have lost a legend.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends. He will be sorely missed.
