Larry Wallis, the first guitarist of the legendary band Motorhead has died at the age of 70 years . The cause of death has yet to be made public. Wallis joined the band in 1975, after being selected by Lemmy Kilmister, leader of Motorhead.
despite the fact that as he was only in the group for less than a year , the guitarist accompanied them throughout the album, "On Parole", their first LP. Only half of his work was preserved, due to the fact that half of the disc would be to record with, who would be his replacement, Eddie "Fast" Clarke.
later, Wallis would write and sing songs of the band such as "Vibrator" and "Fools", as well as in the album "City Kids". In addition to Motorhead, the guitarist would work with other groups such as Shagrat , Blodwyn Pig , and especially Pink Fairies . Also, although for a brief period of time, participated in the topics of UFO in 1972.
After leaving the first group that gave him fame, Wallis recorded in 1977 solo single "Police Car" which was produced by Nick Lowe. Larry Wallis was added to the list of members of Motorhead who have died next to Michael "Würzel" Burston who died in 2011, followed by Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor, and Lemmy Kilmister as they did in 2015 and "Fast" Eddie Clarke in 2018.Updated Date: 23 September 2019, 12:03
