Eddie had a great sound and fitted perfectly into that incarnation of motorhead, his success and that of the band during his time as guitarist speaks for itself, each guitarist during motorheads career has brought something different and unique to the band.
I agree. Thats why Motorhead is so good and so interesting. My favorite is Larry and "worst" is Wurzel. However, I cant imagine Motorhead with only one line up, it would be much worse band. Line up changes I see like something wonderful (in motorhead case) and not something bad. Motorhead music is so rich when we talk about quality because of this changes. Compare this albums: On parole, Another perfect day and Sacrifice. I say, my god isnt this just beautiful?
