Former MOTÖRHEAD drummer Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor died on Wednesday, November 11 at the age of 61. He was MOTÖRHEAD drummer from 1975–1984 and 1987-1992.
Taylor‘s former MOTÖRHEAD bandmate “Fast” Eddie Clarke posted the tribute to Phil on his Facebook page:
“My dear friend and brother passed away last night.
He had been ill for sometime but that does not make it any easier when the time finally comes. I have known Phil since he was 21 and he was one hell of a character. Fortunately we made some fantastic music together and I have many many fond memories of our time together. Rest in Peace, Phil!”
