Just been reading the news and learnt that Phil 'Philthy Animal' Taylor the old drummer with Motorhead has died after an illness.
I first saw Motorhead on their Bomber Tour and got to meet them at a record signing a couple of years later. Taylor was certainly an underrated drummer, famous for that double base beat (epitomised in Overkill) and high energy on the skins.
Strange that he never really did much (not that I know of) after leaving Motorhead.

    Sad news great drummer from a great band,I was massively into thrash and death metal when leaving school in 89',and most of those bands were inspired by Motorhead and a like

    Part of Lemmy's tribute to him has put a smile on my face though

    "Now he's died and it really pisses me off that they take somebody like him and leave George Bush alive. So muse on that"

    Phil Taylor and Animal - were they one and the same?

    I like what Ozzy Osbourne said - "Rest in Peace - and he still owes me $500 from Vegas"

    Class act and a loss to music , proper music.

  • I must admit I did listen to Overkill again lastnight after I'd heard the news on the radio.

    Eddie Clark said that Phil Taylor had been ill for some time. He was a very hard living chap that partook in some serious stuff not to mention alcohol. When I met them at the Ace of Spades record signing at Uptown Records in Bournemouth, I remember the counter was packed with cans of Special Brew and you could cut the air with a knife for the fug of fumes from joints.
