A statement posted on the band's official Facebook page said: "We are devastated to pass on the news we only just heard ourselves earlier tonight".

According to the Motorhead Facebook page, the guitarist died on January 10 due to complications from pneumonia, the Daily Mail reports.

Edward Allan Clarke was born in Twickenham, England, on October 5, 1950, and began playing in bands at 15.

Among the many reasons we loved Motörhead is that, even at the height of The Troubles, they insisted on playing for their fans in the North.

"I saw Eddie not too long ago and he was in great shape, so this is a complete shock".

Fellow band member Mikkey Dee responded to the heartbreaking news.

Guitarist Phil has been left in a state of "shock" by the news, and hailed Eddie a "true rock "n" roller".

Clarke was Motorhead's guitarist at the height of the band's success.

Motörhead is known for their hits "Ace of Spades" (1980), "Killed by Death" (1984) and "Born to Raise Hell" (1994). Now Lem and Philthy can jam with Eddie again, and if you listen carefully I'm sure you'll hear them, so watch out! I was looking forward to seeing him in the United Kingdom this summer when we come around with the Scorps [Mikkey's current band, the Scorpions].

Eddie kicked of his career performing in the blues band Zeus and came to meet Phil whilst refitting a houseboat, before joining the group in 1976.

The musician was a member of the mythical band from its founding until 1982, and was the last of the founding members alive after the death of Lemmy Kilmister and Phil Taylor in 2015. He was its last surviving member; Mr. Taylor died in November 2015 aged 61 and Mr. Kilmister died a month later aged 70.
