Clarke's last album with Mötorhead was 1982's Iron Fist, after which Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson took his spot. Band tensions played a role in Clarke's departure and the final straw for the guitarist was reportedly Mötorhead's decision to partner with the Plasmatics for an EP featuring a cover of Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man."

After leaving Mötorhead, Clarke teamed with bassist Pete Way to form a new outfit, Fastway, which released its self-titled debut in 1983. The group released a string of records throughout the Eighties, riding the popularity of heavy metal and hair metal, before splitting in the early Nineties.

Clarke released a solo album, It Ain't Over Till It's Over, in 1994, which notably found him reuniting with his former Mötorhead bandmate Lemmy on "Laugh at the Devil." Clarke would continue to record and perform over the next few decades, releasing solo records and reuniting with Fastway. His last LP, Make My Day – Back to Blues, arrived in 2014.
