FORMER MOTORHEAD GUITARIST 'FAST' EDDIE CLARKE DEAD AT 67

Former Motorhead and Fastway guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke passed away on Wednesday (January 10th) after a battle with pneumonia. He was 67 years old. Clarke, a member of Motorhead from 1976 until 1982, was not an original member of the group but one-third of its classic lineup, which also included drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor and singer/bassist Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister.

Taylor died in November 2015 of liver failure, while Kilmister passed away from cancer in December of that same year, making Clarke the last surviving member of Motorhead's best-known lineup until now.

In a statement submitted to the court after Feld Entertainment filed its lawsuit, Rock said, "While I firmly believe that I am entitled under the First Amendment to name my tour after my song, I have changed the tour name because I do not want this lawsuit to distract me or my fans from focusing on what is important in my upcoming tour -- my music.”
