Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor's Final Show
Irvine Meadows, Irvine, CA - 3/28/1992
This is Phil Taylor's final show with the band. Taylor had replaced Lucas Fox very early on in the band's history in late 1975 and had been the drummer for the "Classic Lineup" until his departure in 1984. He was replaced by Pete Gill for several years, but returned in 1987. He remained the drummer until Lemmy fired him while recording the "March or Die" album in 1992. The reason behind this is up for debate, ranging from Taylor's skills declining, Taylor refusing to learn tracks for a new song, to Taylor hooking up with one of Lemmy's exes. As both Lemmy and Philthy have gone on to the great gig in the sky, we will never get the full story. Former King Diamond drummer Mickey Dee would anchor the lineup for the next half of Motorhead's 40 year run. It is best to view this as him "taking over for" Taylor, as it is impossible to replace the originator of the double bass sound that inspired anyone who played hard rock/heavy metal in the years that followed the release of "Overkill" in 1979.
