The classic Motörhead lineup – the Ace of Spades lineup – is now gone with the passing of Fast Eddie Clarke.
These guys combined the energy and grit of punk with the hair and volume of heavy metal, but always retained a basic rock and roll sound. There was nobody like them.
First up is the classic and ubiquitous Ace of Spades, followed by Bomber and the eponymous Motörhead. God damn…you motherfuckers ROCKED.
RIP Lem, Phil, and Ed. You made my life better. Thank you.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
