Phil Taylor: 1954-2015

November 13, 2015 at 6:07 pm (Uncategorized)

The second concert I went to was Motorhead. It must have been late 1979 on the Bomber tour. The show featured a bomber-like structure as part of the stage set. Lemmy was great. Fast Eddie Clarke was great. And Philthy “Animal” Taylor was great. I saw the band again the following year on the Ace of Spades tour (I still have my autographed programme). The next year, I moved to Canada, and didn’t follow Motorhead as much. Eddie Clarke left. And in 1984 Taylor did too. (He rejoined from 1987-92).

Taylor died yesterday after a long illness at the age of 61. Great drummer.
