Larry Wallis, original guitarist for Motorhead, has died at the age of 70.

Wallis played for a number of British bands including UFO and Pink Fairies before meeting up with Lemmy Kilmister to form Motorhead in 1975.  He quit the following year after the band hired Eddie Clarke as a second guitarist. Wallis only played on one Motorhead record, On Parole, which wouldn’t be released until 1979.  He released a solo album called Death In The Guitafternoon in 2001.
