Motorhead's Campbell Shares Fondest Lemmy Memory


(Classic Rock) Former Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell has revealed he came close to retirement after the death of mainman Lemmy and also revealed one of his fondest memories of the iconic frontman.

Campbell tells WalesOnline that the memory took place on tour a few years ago. "He called me in my hotel room and said, 'Phil, come down to my room now.' I thought, 'What have I done wrong now?'

"I was expecting him to say, 'I listened back to last night's tape and you played like sh*t.' But he said, 'I just wanted you to know, never once in all this time have I regretted having you in the band. You're a good man, Phil.' I've been blessed for the life I had with him. I wouldn't have missed it for the world."

Over the summer he converted his All Starr Band into Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons, consisting of sons Tyla, Dane and Todd, plus vocalist Neil Starr.

"I was planning on semi-retiring after Motorhead finished - but I can't see that happening now," he reports. "We're going to have some fun with this. Getting back on stage has been good for me." Read more here.
