Best known as the former guitarist of Motörhead.

Clarke played his final show with Motörhead on May 14th, 1982, and he was replaced by Brian Robertson. He had joined the band in 1976, playing guitars on all their first full-lengths except for On Parole, which was released in 1979 but actually recorded in 1975.


He is the fourth deceased member of Motörhead, as well as the last member of the band's classic lineup (following Philthy Animal and Lemmy) to die.

Fastway was a hard rock band. They recorded the main song for the soundtrack of the 1986 film Trick or Treat. The film features Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons acting in minor roles.
