All the members of my favorite lineup of Motörhead gone now. RIP Eddie.

R.I.P. Eddie. Just as I ordered and received the expanded 2CD editions of my fav 'head albums "Overkill" and "Another Perfect Day". Dare I even play the latter...

Eddie's lead playing has a haunting quality. I love how they applied some reverb. Hard to describe but it reminds me of a wet asphalt on a city by night. :)

One of my favs:

The Overkill album is my favourite as well. The thing with the Eddie-era to me is that everyone had such huge characterics, playing style and soundwise. Obviously Lemmy had his voice and bass sound, but Eddie and Philthy were'nt far behind adding lots of character. Eddie never won any guitar polls and he was kind of a one trick pony. But nobody would be able to fill his shoes in Motörhead (not even such a great guitarplayer as Robbo). I'm a big fan of the later lineups as well. They made good songs and played well but to me the people replacing Eddie and Philthy could more or less have been any good guitarist or drummer.
