Fast Eddie Clarke Says He Was Fired From Motorhead

(Classic Rock) Former Motorhead guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke says he's never got over being sacked by the band. He insists stories that he left of his own accord are untrue - and that he was ousted in 1982 at the hand of then-drummer Phil 'Philthy Animal' Taylor, despite previous differences between him and Lemmy having been resolved.

Clarke tells Classic Rock Revisited: "Phil was a different story. He was the main instigator in my being excluded from the band. Notice I do not call it 'leaving' - it wasn't my choice. Everyone else says I left; not me.

"I'm still a little raw about not being in Motorhead any more. Some things you just don't get over. I had imagined dying onstage with Motorhead, so it was a blow when they didn't want me any longer." more on this story
