Eddie Clarke has died after a bout of pneumonia. He was the lead guitarist in Motörhead’s classic lineup.

Not previously aware of him.
My loss.
When I chkd into his work I found 2 interesting things.

Here's a clip of the trio straining Lemmy's stamina.
Most interesting, to me at least, is 7:18~7:40 where EC switches to a well-voiced version of the "woman tone" for which the other EC was know.
He finishes that segment w/ a really cool Henrix-like octave hammer lick abt 7:33. rawk

Then there's this which may be a bit out of character but is a v. good vid both musically & visually.
It seems appropriate here.
