Former Motörhead drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor died on Wednesday, November 11 at the age of 61. Taylor's one-time bandmate, ex-Motörhead guitarist Eddie Clarke had this to say:

"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!"

Taylor appeared on roughly ten Motörhead records, including Overkill, Bomber, and Ace of Spades.
