Motörhead's former drummer Phil Taylor dead at 61


Motörhead's original drummer, Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor, died on November 11 at 61.

Former guitarist Eddie Clarke said in a post on Facebook: "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!"
